Extreme and Cisco VLAN Naming - question.
Posted on 2010-01-04
We have started to integrate Extreme network switches into our primarily 'CIsco' network. I have noticed that when naming VLAN's on our Extreme switches (Summit X450a) the VLAN name has to begin with a character, not a number. This presents a small problem as all our CIsco defined VLAN's are numerical. Does this mean I have to reconfigure all of my Cisco switches to use a naming scheme that at least begins with a character? Not a number... Or is there another way to go about this.
Our Cisco enviromnet has multiple VLANS, all are names similar to -
VLAN 17 and so forth
WIth the Extreme, I am assuming these need to be named -
Where x is an character - a-z or A-Z, and cannot be a number.
Is this correct? Do I have to re-define all my Cisco VLAN names?
