removing vlan from CSS

Hi, I've to move VLAN 2 from CSS to ACE completely so I'll have to remove the VLAN 2 from CSS. how to remove VLAN 2 from CSS?

there might be some services whose IP address may belong VLAN 2 subnet. will I have to remove those servers completely from CSS before removing the VLAN 2 from CSS?

will CSS allow me to remove VLAN 2 without removing services whose IP address belongs to VLAN 2?

please help...

removing vlan from CSS

Hi Gavin,

Having services on that vlan would not be an issue, however, you won't be able to remove a vlan (more specifically, the IP address of the circuit) as long as there are active content rules on it.

So, the steps would be first suspending all the content rules in that vlan (which I assume were already suspended after moving them to the ACE), then removing the IP from the circuit and finally, removing the vlan from the physical interface.

I hope this helps
