configure vlan tag

configure {vlan} vlan_name tag tag {remote-mirroring}


Assigns a unique 802.1Q tag to the VLAN (Virtual LAN).

Syntax Description

vlan_name Specifies a VLAN name.
tag Specifies a value to use as an 802.1Q tag. The valid range is from 2 to 4095.
remote-mirroring Specifies that the tagged VLAN is for remote mirroring.


The default VLAN uses an 802.1Q tag (and an internal VLANid) of 1.

Usage Guidelines

If any of the ports in the VLAN use an 802.1Q tag, a tag must be assigned to the VLAN. The valid range is from 2 to 4094 (tag 1 is assigned to the default VLAN, and tag 4095 is assigned to the management VLAN).

The 802.1Q tag is also used as the internal VLANid by the switch.

You can specify a value that is currently used as an internal VLANid on another VLAN; it becomes the VLANid for the VLAN you specify, and a new VLANid is automatically assigned to the other untagged VLAN.


The following command assigns a tag (and internal VLANid) of 120 to a VLAN named accounting:

configure accounting tag 120
