TRANS1/TRANS2 ?

In this output of a SHOW VLAN command on a 2900XL switch, what do the fields TRANS1 and TRANS2 refer to (containing values of 1002 & 1003 for VLAN 1)?

And how do you set them to be the same on VLAN2?

lrmooreCommented:
Short for translation 1 and translation 2
VLAN 1 is the "native" vlan designated by 1002 and 1003
You do not want them to be the same.

cummingsdwAuthor Commented:
So what is being translated?

VLAN 1 is the native vlan, but what does it mean that it's designated by these two translations?

The translations on VLAN 2 are 0 and 0.  But presumably they don't HAVE to be those values.  What COULD they be?

Evaluating UTMs? Here's what you need to know!

Evaluating a UTM appliance and vendor can prove to be an overwhelming exercise.  How can you make sure that you're getting the security that your organization needs without breaking the bank? Check out our UTM Buyer's Guide for more information on what you should be looking for!

Those TRANS columns are for translating ethernet to and from FDDI VLANs or ethernet to/from Token Ring VLANs. These are typically used when trunking across FDDI or Token Ring. Here's a page from Cisco that talks about how to configure them. Conceivable you would un-configure them with a "clear" command instead of a "set". Make sure you have a backup of your vlan config first if you try that.

Eric is exactly correct on this if you research Cisco VLAN technology you will find that they typically use nubers over 1000 for token ring and FDDI vlan's the 2900XL series switches code was originally derived from a router IOS this is way back in the late 90's and some of the code was left in the switches but did not actually do anything.  One way is to go into the vlan database and start doing some house cleaning...
From the enable prompt you would type in vlan database and hit enter as illistrated below.

Switch#vlan data

Then do a show current

Switch#show current

delete the vlans that you do not want and then type exit

This will get them out of the config but there are also other issues like VTP that can be contributing to your problem / question..

Thanks

I don't think you can delete those VLANs... I thought they were fixed... Give it a try though and see what happens

eric-

You are correct but it will also clear them in most cases .... what I was reffrencing was other VLAN's mainly...

You may want to delete all vlans and recreate all of them...

cummingsdwAuthor Commented:
At this point I don't want to delete any VLANS.  I just wanted to understand what the column headings referred to.  Now I do.  Thanks.

I do have a few more questions about VLANS.

I'll post them later.
