Configuring Static VLANs

Lab 8.2.3 Configuring Static VLANs

Objective

Create a basic switch configuration and verify it.

Determine the switch firmware version.

Create two VLANs, name them and assign member ports to them.

Background/Preparation
When managing a switch, the Management Domain is always VLAN 1. The Network Administrator's
workstation must have access to a port in the VLAN 1 Management Domain. All ports are assigned
to VLAN 1 by default. This lab will also help demonstrate how VLANs can be used to separate traffic
and reduce broadcast domains.
Cable a network similar to the one in the diagram. The configuration output used in this lab is
produced from a 2950 series switch. Any other switch used may produce different output. The
following steps are to be executed on each switch unless specifically instructed otherwise.
Instructions are also provided for the 1900 Series switch, which initially displays a User Interface
Menu. Select the “Command Line” option from the menu to perform the steps for this lab.
Start a HyperTerminal session.
Note: Go to the erase and reload instructions at the end of this lab. Perform those steps on all
switches in this lab assignment before continuing.

Step 1 Configure the switch
Configure the hostname, access and command mode passwords, as well as the management LAN
settings. These values are shown in the chart. If problems occur while performing this configuration,
refer to the Basic Switch Configuration lab.

Was the ping successful? __________________________________________________ c. Type the show version command at the user EXEC or privileged EXEC mode prompt as follows: Switch_A#show vlan b. Which ports belong to the default VLAN? ________________________________________ 1900: Switch_A#show vlan c. How many ports are in the 1003 VLAN? _________________________________________ Step 6 Create and name two VLANs Check prompts on 2950 Enter the following commands to create and name two VLANs: Switch_A#vlan database Switch_A(vlan)#vlan 2 name VLAN2 Switch_A(vlan)#vlan 3 name VLAN3 Switch_A(vlan)#exit NWS Asia Pacific University College of Technology and Innovation . b. If the answer is no. type the command show vlan at the privileged EXEC prompt as follows: Switch_A#show vlan 1900: Switch_A#show vlan-membership b. What version of the switch IOS is displayed? ______________________________________ c. What does the VLAN 1003 represent? __________________________________________ e. How many VLANs are set up by default on the switch? ______________________________ d. Step 4 Show the IOS version a. troubleshoot the host and switch configurations. ping the switch from the host. On Switch_A. It is very important to know the version of the operating system. mask.Step 2 Configure the hosts attached to the switch Configure the host to use the same subnet for the address. and default gateway as on the switch. To verify that the host and switch are correctly configured. Does this switch have standard edition or Enterprise edition software? ___________________ d. What is the Firmware version of the switch? ______________________________________ Step 5 Display the VLAN interface information a. Step 3 Verify connectivity a. Differences between versions may change how commands are entered.

On Switch_A.1900: Switch_A#config terminal Switch_A(config)#vlan 2 name VLAN2 Switch_A(config)#vlan 3 name VLAN3 Step 7 Display the VLAN interface information a. Are there new VLANs in the listing? ____________________________________________ 1900: Switch_A#show vlan-membership c. type the command show vlan at the privileged EXEC prompt as follows: Switch_A#show vlan b. type the command show vlan at the privileged EXEC prompt as follows: Switch_A#show vlan 1900: Switch_A#show vlan-membership b. NWS Is the port still listed in the default VLAN? ________________________________________ Asia Pacific University College of Technology and Innovation . Enter the following commands to add port 2 to VLAN 2: Switch_A#configure terminal Switch_A(config)#interface fastethernet 0/2 Switch_A(config-if)#switchport mode access Switch_A(config-if)#switchport access vlan 2 Switch_A(config-if)#end 1900: Switch_A#config terminal Switch_A(config)#interface Ethernet 0/2 Switch_A(config-if)#vlan static 2 Switch_A(config)#end Step 9 Display the VLAN interface information a. On Switch_A. Do they have any ports assigned to them yet? _____________________________________ Step 8 Assign ports to VLAN 2 Assigning ports to VLANs must be done from the interface mode. Is port 2 assigned to VLAN 2? ________________________________________________ c.

Enter the following commands to add port 3 to VLAN3 Switch_A#configure terminal Switch_A(config)#interface fastethernet 0/3 Switch_A(config-if)#switchport mode access Switch_A(config-if)#switchport access vlan 3 Switch_A(config-if)#end 1900: Switch_A#config terminal Switch_A(config)#interface Ethernet 0/3 Switch_A(config)#vlan static 3 Switch_A(config)#end Step 11 Look at the VLAN interface information a. Is port 3 assigned to VLAN 3? ________________________________________________ c. Instead of displaying all of the VLANs type the show vlan name VLAN2 command at the privileged EXEC mode prompt. Switch_A#show vlan name VLAN2 NWS Asia Pacific University College of Technology and Innovation .Step 10 Assign a port to VLAN 3 Assigning ports to VLANs must be done from the interface mode. Is the port still listed in the default VLAN? ________________________________________ Step 12 Look at only VLAN2 information a. Instead of displaying all of the VLANs type the show vlan id 2 command at the privileged EXEC mode prompt as follows: Switch_A#show vlan id 2 1900: Switch_A#show vlan 2 b. Does this command supply any more information than the show VLAN command? __________ Step 13 Look at only VLAN2 information with a different command (1900: Omit this step) a. On Switch_A. type the command show vlan at the privileged EXEC prompt as follows: Switch_A#show vlan 1900: Switch_A#show vlan-membership b.

and turn all the devices off. log off by typing exit. Then remove and store the cables and adapter.b. Does this command supply any more information than the show VLAN command? __________ Once the steps are completed. NWS Asia Pacific University College of Technology and Innovation .
