How to remove a port from a VLan on an HP ProCurve 2910al-48g


This is a basic question but I have not spare switches to test with and the documentation that I have found online has not helped me yet.  I am trying to remove port 2 from a Wifi VLan and then assign port to the another VLan on the switch.

A "show config' results in the following information:

vlan 1
   name "DEFAULT_VLAN"
   untagged 5-46,48
   ip address 172.XX.X.249
   no untagged 1-4,47

vlan 101
   name "Milwaukee_Voice"
   untagged 3-4
   qos priority 5
   ip address 172.XX.X.254

vlan 50
   name "Guest_Wirless"
   untagged 2
   no ip address

I entered the following command to remove the port 2 from VLan 101.:

-DIST-48G-1-254(vlan-50)# no untagged 2
Port(s) 2 orphaned (not member(s) of any VLAN). Operation failed.

Should I just add port 2 to another VLan by typing
>untagged 2<enter>

I read on:

page 17, one can try this:

Enter the following commands:
HP6208-A(config-vlan-4)# no untag ethernet 11
deleted port ethe 11 from port-vlan 4.

According to
Add port(s) to the VLAN:
vlan <vlan_id> untagged <ports>

Remove VLAN from port(s) (must be tied to another VLAN):
vlan <vlan_id> untagged <ports>

The port has to be a member of a VLAN.  Just make it a member of any other VLAN.

So if I want to add port 2 to the Voicemail VLan (VLan id = 101)

>show config<enter>
>vlan 101 untagged 2<enter>

Then run "show running-config"<enter> to verify.  Then after  you verify the changes.
>write memory<enter>

OK, I will try it out.

For some reason I thought that if a VLAN (like VLAN 101 for example) already had ports 3, 4 in it, and one needed to add port #2 to it, then one needed to type a command:

vlan 101 untagged 2-4<enter>

But if that is not the case and one can just add additional ports without mentioning the already existing ports that you do not want to move then than makes things easier.  I will give it a shot with the command.
Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
The command is additive. So if you issue the command "untagged 2" for VLAN 101, then port 2 will be added to the list of untagged ports for VLAN 101.
