VLAN interfaces are explicitly created and deleted by the Administrator. To create a VLAN interface, supply the base aggregation interface name and the VLAN tag. Then associate IP addresses with those VLAN interfaces using the evs or evsipaddr commands.

VLAN interfaces that have been dynamically created by the deprecated vlan command only appear in the ifconfig display. For further information on converting a dynamic VLAN interface into a static VLAN interface, see the VLAN conversion Appendix.

  1. To create a VLAN interface, use the vlan-interface-create command and supply the base aggregation interface name and the VLAN tag as shown in the examples below:
     $ vlan-interface-create --interface ag1 433
       Created ag1-vlan0433
    
     $ vlan-interface-create --interface ag1 499
       Created ag1-vlan0499
     
    
    For further details on vlan-interface-create, see the CLI Reference.

  2. Use the vlan-interface-show command to display the existing VLAN interface names.
     $ vlan-interface-show
         ag1-vlan0433
         ag1-vlan0499
     
    For further details on vlan-interface-show, see the CLI Reference.

  3. Associate IP addresses with the VLAN interfaces using the evs create command. Use the evs list command to show a list of the VLAN interfaces with IP addresses.
     $ evs create -l EVS1 -i 10.0.0.10/8 -p ag1-vlan0433
     $ evs create -l EVS2 -i 172.16.0.10/16 -p ag1-vlan0499
    
    
     $ evs list
         5     Service  EVS1   Yes    Online   10.0.0.10        ag1-vlan0433
         6     Service  EVS2   Yes    Online   172.16.0.10      ag1-vlan0499
    
    For further details on evs create and evs list, see the CLI Reference.

  4. You can also use evsipaddr to associate IP addresses with VLAN interfaces
     $ evsipaddr -e 1 -a -i 192.168.1.1 -m 255.255.255.0 -p ag1-vlan0433
