Configuring VLANs for EX Series Switches (J-Web Procedure)

You can use the VLAN Configuration page to add a new VLAN or to edit or delete an existing VLAN on an EX Series switch.

To access the VLAN Configuration page:

  1. Select Configure > Switching > VLAN.

    The VLAN Configuration page displays a list of existing VLANs. If you select a specific VLAN, the specific VLAN details are displayed in the Details section.

    Note: After you make changes to the configuration in this page, you must commit the changes immediately for them to take effect. To commit all changes to the active configuration, select Commit Options > Commit. See Using the Commit Options to Commit Configuration Changes for details about all commit options.

  2. Click one:
    • Add—creates a VLAN.
    • Edit—edits an existing VLAN configuration.
    • Delete—deletes an existing VLAN.

      Note: If you delete a VLAN, the VLAN configuration for all the associated interfaces is also deleted.

    When you are adding or editing a VLAN, enter information as described in Table 1.
