I believe XL switches do not support extended range VLANs.

Re: Only 1000 vlans???

Hi,

User-configurable VLANs have unique IDs from 1 to 4094. Database mode supports configuration of IDs from 1 to 1001, but not the extended addresses from 1006 to 4094.

You could create an extended vlan from configuration terminal

Remember that you need the vtp mode transparent.

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

There is no option to create a vlan in config mode. Only in database mode.
