What switch model?

Vlan is a 'virtual' lan.

So, it means that on a switch you can logically segregate it into different switches.

I've always loved vlans in that it allows you to create new networks without requiring the physical intervention of connecting new cables or buying new hardware. Makes remote management a snap :)

So, you wanna know how to build a vlan on a switch? What about how you're gonna route between these vlans? Or do you have that part wired? just curious...

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

hi ssshibu,
    1st of all plz check whether your switch is manageable or unmanagable..have u assigned ip address, after that
u want to create vlan, so for that commands are as follows..

(config)#hostname 1900EN
1900EN(config)#vlan 2 name sales
1900EN(config)#vlan 3 name marketing
1900EN(config)#vlan 4 name mis
1900EN(config)#exit

1900EN#config t
Enter configuration commands,one per line.End with CNTL/Z
1900EN(config)#int e0/2
1900EN(config-if)#v?
vlan-membership
1900EN(config-if)#vlan-membership ?
dynamic Set VLAN membership type as dynamic
static Set VLAN membership type as static
1900EN(config-if)#vlan-membership static ?
<1-1005>ISL VLAN index
1900EN(config-if)#vlan-membership static 2
1900EN(config-if)#int e0/4
1900EN(config-if)#vlan-membership static 3
1900EN(config-if)#int e0/5
1900EN(config-if)#vlan-membership static 4
1900EN(config-if)#exit
1900EN(config)#exit
