Hi SKRAO,

Management vlan is only used the managed the switches on your network. If you have a layer 2 switch you give the ip to management vlan to manage it remotely. If you dont give any ip to management Vlan, you dont losse out anything. its just that you will not be able to manage the switch remotly. You have to console it in order to troubleshoot it.
