Issue with bridging and VLANs


I have a router running 15.1 and have two VLANs defined (I have an NM-16ESW, so they are defined using the 'vlan' command). Everything works great and I can set the swithports to access or trunk etc.

I then bridged the VLAN1 and a gigabitethernet routable port using a BVI1 interface. In pseudo config:

Interface gigabitethernet0/1

no ip address

bridge-group 1

interface BVI1

ip address

interface vlan1

no ip address

bridge-group 1

interface vlan2

ip address

bridge irb

bridge 1 protocol ieee

bridge 1 route ip VLAN2 is no longer accesible from the switchports, and in fact appears not to exist on the router. For example I configure a switch port as switchport access vlan 2 and I get an error that VLAN 2 does not exist.

How do I tie my switch and routable port togther and include the VLANS?
