I'm trying to remove some of the vlans from our Catalyst 2940


VLAN Name                             Status    Ports                                                    
---- -------------------------------- --------- -------------------------------

                                                           Fa0/5, Fa0/6, Fa0/7, Fa0/8                                                                          
                                                           Gi0/1
                                                     
100  AVVID                              active    Fa0/1, Fa0/2, Fa0/3, Fa0/4                                                                          
                                                           Fa0/5, Fa0/6, Fa0/7, Fa0/8                                                                          
416  EAST2-Closet                    active                                            
420  BH-9777                           active                                            
950  Development                     active                                            
1000 IT_NETWORK                   active                                            
1002 fddi-default                      act/unsup                                              
1003 token-ring-default             act/unsup                                              
1004 fddinet-default                 act/unsup                                              
1005 trnet-default                    act/unsup


I'm trying to remove them by typing "no vlan 416", but I'm getting the following error:  % Invalid input detected at '^' marker.
I need to remove at the very least vland 416, 420, 950.

Thanks
Tom

Worked perfectly, thanks Irmoore.....    so now the vlan 1 name is "Default", can you tell me how to change the name?

I don't think you can change anything on vlan1 it is always "default"
If you could, the procedure would be:

switch#vlan data
switch(vlan)#vlan 1 name MyVLAN1
switch(vlan)#exit
Apply completed
Exiting...
switch#sho vlan

it doesn't seem to allow me to change the "default" name.  Thanks for your help.
