Removal of Vlan

Hello All,

Why is that when i remove a Vlan, the interface associated it is not return to the list of default Vlan interfaces?.

Hence whenever a new Vlan is created the formerly removed interface is automatically assigned to the newly created Vlan.

How can i return the removed Vlan's interface number to the list of the default interfaces where a new choice ould be made?

Thanking all in advance

Ideally it should go back to default vlan.

Re: Removal of Vlan

As long as you have "switchport access vlan x" configured for the interface, the interface will be associated with vlan x, even if vlan x is not created.When you remove this command the port becomes part of vlan1.Hope this clarifies.

Re: Removal of Vlan

Maybe it depends on the switch's IOS version because I always thought that the switchport will default to vlan 1 if the vlan to which it belonged was ever removed....?
