Add Vlan access

I was able to do this before but forgot what the command is to do it.

I don't make changes to the switches often so I forget the commands I dont use regularly.

We have a catalyst 4500 Level 3 switch as our main switch. It has all the vlans and everything already set.

That is connected to a few other switches via fiber, 2960-G switches.

We have one switch upstairs for vlan 2 access

We have one switch downstairs for Vlan 1 access

The Vlan addresses are given out via a DHCP server.

Can someone provide me the process/commands to add Vlan2 to the downstairs switch so one of the ports can get a Vlan 2 address?

I want to say it is trunk or something but I tried and failed.

Thanks

If you've got trunk enabled

If you've got trunk enabled and you want to enable VLAN 2 on both sides of the trunk, then the command is "switchport trunk allowed vlan add 2".

Thanks, I do remember doing

Thanks, I do remember doing something like that before.

I also remember needing to add all the vlans that need to go through the switch or I have issues :)

I want to confirm switchport trunk allowed vlan add 2 at the interface layer, correct?
