Adding a VLAN ID to the System


When you add a VLAN to a node, the network and CTP devices are restarted to update the network parameters. The node is not restarted.


For VLAN switchover to function correctly, VLANs must be configured on the primary Ethernet interface (for example, eth1) that has IPv4 configured and Ethernet switchover enabled.

To add a VLAN ID to the system from the CTP Menu:

  1. From the Main Menu, select 5) Node Operations > 3) Configure network settings > 8) VLAN Configuration.
  2. Follow the onscreen instructions and configure the options as described in Table 1.
