Assigning IP Address to VLAN Web GUI

Hello,

I am working with this particular switch from Cisco: SG300-52

It  functions only from a web gui, no cli available which has made configurations  cumbersome. Under "VLAN Management" I don't see a tab for assigning an  IP Address to a VLAN.

This is my intended goal via the web gui:

Switch(config)#interface Vlan2
Switch(config-if)#ip address 10.1.2.1 255.255.255.0

Does anyone know how to accomplish this?

Thanks

Re: Assigning IP Address to VLAN Web GUI

Your switch runs in Layer 2 mode by default.  If you want to put ip addresses on the vlans, you need to change the switch mode from Layer 2 mode to Layer 3 mode.  You can ONLY do this in the console menu (not the web GUI).  It does indeed exist, you must access it using a baud rate of 115,200 (not the standard 9600 that we all know and love ), data bits = 8, parity = none, stop bits = 1, flow control = None.  It is also available via telnet (default username/password is cisco/cisco, though I'm certain you've already changed this).  Go to Switch Main Menu --> System Mode. 

IMPORTANT TO NOTE:  So that you know ahead of time, switching between Layer 2 & Layer 3 modes will clear all other configurations that you have in place, so plan accordingly.

You should be able to address the vlans after you've made this change.

Re: Assigning IP Address to VLAN Web GUI

Hi Antonio,

Man you are a lifesaver! This really helped point me in the right direction. I was operating in Layer 2 mode the entire time. Now that I know it has to be in layer 3 mode, it makes searching the administrative pdf a breeze.

Thanks again,

-William
