4506 add routing and vlan?

Also Posted at WAN switching & routing by mistake.

We have two 4506's only doing layer2 and one Vlan

Another vlan is requested.

We don't want to mess with the WAN router.

Is it just a config to add routing and Vlan, or is an upgrade necessary?

Below is a look at the system.

Re: 4506 add routing and vlan?

Sure you can do both without any config on the router

Create the SVI on the L3 switch, add the vlan and dont forget to enable routing!

Errr ... I don't think Yuk Ster can enable routing.  The Sup2+ is a layer 2 only card. 

Dot1Q and sub-interface has to be created on the router.
