Components are typically named using the create command.
When you enter a command to configure a named component, you do not need to use the keyword of the component. For example, to create a VLAN, enter a VLAN name:create vlan engineering
Once you have created the VLAN with a unique name, you can then eliminate the keyword vlan from all other commands that require the name to be entered (unless you used the same name for another category such as STPD or EAPS).
For example, instead of entering the command:
configure vlan engineering delete port 1:3,4:6
you could enter the following shortcut:
configure engineering delete port 1:3,4:6
