A5500 VLAN interface config issue

A5500 VLAN interface config issue



I have a A5500 where i have configured a route-port on an interface.


interface GigabitEthernet1/0/1
 port link-mode route
 ip address


This port is a link to an old network which I am trying to move over to the new infrastructure I´m building with the A5500.


I want to move this address to a vlan interface and change the port to bridge-mode.


My config for the move.


interface GigabitEthernet1/0/1
undo ip address
port link-mode bridge
port link-type access
port access vlan 100

interface Vlan-interface100
 ip address


After I do the changes the IP address becomes unreachable.


I can se in the mac address table that on Layer 2 i have connectivity. Mac address table fills up.


If i grab another port in Vlan100 and connect my PC to it, It can DHCP an address and reach all hosts in that network, except the address on the vlan interface.


What am I doing wrong? Is there any service that should be enabled?


Pls assist me with ideas!

Re: A5500 VLAN interface config issue

You may need to create the VLAN before assigning the IP address to the VLAN interface.  Try:


vlan 100

   name newvlan (optional)


Then the rest of your config.
