Assigns a unique 802.1Q tag to the VLAN.
|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.
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
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.
The remote-mirroring option was added in ExtremeXOS 12.1.
This command is available on ExtremeSwitching 5320, 5420, 5520, and 5720 series switches.
