i am not able to create new vlan in 6500 FWSM

i did the below
(config)#vlan 192
(config)#firewall vlan-group 1  192
(config)#firewall module 2 vlan-group 1
(config)#inter vlan 192
(config-if)#ip address
(config-if)#no shut

I am getting the below error but the vlan number is showing in FWSM

Forcing SVI 192 to stay shutdown (SVI 350 tied to line card in slot 2.)

at present my network is 10.x.x.x now i am trying to add 192.168.x.x vlan

    Accepted Solution

    By default, it won't allow you to have more than one SVI on the switch that is part of the Firewall VLAN group.  Typically, the layer3 interface for the VLAN's resides on the FWSM (not the switch) since if the switch is routing, you can bypass the Firewall.

    TanQ very much for your reply

    i have one more doubt  
    in my switch i have couple of existing vlans in vlan group 1

    firewall vlan-group 1  20,30,60,80

    no i want to add one more new vlan in this group   vlan 192 is the new vlan

    firewall vlan-group 1 192         is this enough or is it remove all existing and put this new one....??

    No, it won't remove the others, it will add 192 to the list.
