RPR+ and VLAN creation on Cat6500 running IOS

I've got a 6500 running native IOS 12.1(19)E1. I want to create a new VLAN on this switch but ran across some documentation that states:RPR+ redundancy does not support a configuration entered in VLAN database mode. Use global configuration mode with RPR+ redundancy.

I am running RPR+.

I've never done it this way before and after reading over the documentation to do this it seems to easy. It seems like I'm missing something. Can someone outline the steps to do this?

Thanks,

Re: RPR+ and VLAN creation on Cat6500 running IOS

Hi Jeff,

I believe you are referring to the following restriction in this document:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/lan/cat6000/12_1e/swconfig/redund.htm#wp1095579

"RPR+ redundancy does not support configuration entered in VLAN database mode. Use global configuration mode with RPR+ redundancy"

vlan creation via vlan database has been deprecated in order to simplify the configuration process as well as to better integrate with features such as RPR+

Here's a simple example that creates vlan10 (assume VTP transparent mode):

Router# configure terminal

Router(config)# vlan 10

Router(config-vlan)#

This document explains the process further in case you don't already have it.

Hi Jeff,

You have read right in RPR+ mode you have to configure vlans in global config mode.

Router(config)# vlan vlan_ID

Read this link for more details on how to create vlans
