Syntax Description

vlan_name Specifies the current (old) VLAN name.
vlan_id Specifies the VLAN ID.

Usage Guidelines

You cannot change the name of the default VLAN “Default.”

For information on VLAN name requirements and a list of reserved keywords, see Object Names in the ExtremeXOS 32.2 User Guide .



If you use the same name across categories (for example, STPD and EAPS names), we recommend that you specify the identifying keyword as well as the actual name. If you do not use the keyword, the system may return an error message.


The following example renames VLAN vlan1 to engineering:

configure vlan vlan1 name engineering
