extended Vlan on a 3500

I'm using a 3500XL series and this is the version.

C3500XL Software (C3500XL-C3H2S-M), Version 12.0(5.3)WC(1)

With a boot image:

System image file is "flash:c3500XL-c3h2s-mz.120-5.3.WC.1.bin"

VTP is transparent but I still can't seem to created extended VLans past the 1005.

This is the error I get.

helpdesk_sw01(vlan)#vlan 1991

Re: extended Vlan on a 3500

Hi,

Extended VLANs can't be configured from the vlan database mode, and must be configured from the global configuration mode.

Rack1SW1#vlan database

% Warning: It is recommended to configure VLAN from config mode,

as VLAN database mode is being deprecated. Please consult user

documentation for configuring VTP/VLAN in config mode.

Rack1SW1(vlan)#vl

Rack1SW1(vlan)#vlan ?

<1-1005> ISL VLAN index

Rack1SW1(vlan)#exit

APPLY completed.

Exiting....

Rack1SW1#conf t

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

Rack1SW1(config)#vl

Rack1SW1(config)#vlan ?

WORD ISL VLAN IDs 1-4094

access-map Create vlan access-map or enter vlan access-map command mode

dot1q dot1q parameters

filter Apply a VLAN Map

internal internal VLAN

[edit] Tried to do this for a 3548XL i have (while the above output was from a 3560), and i found out that further on the 3500XL doesn't support extended VLANs:

"The 2900XL and 3500XL can use only VLANs in the range of 1 to 1001, and they do not support extended-range VLANs. If you upgrade the software of the switch, it does not bring an enhancement to support the configuration of extended-range VLANs."
