What is switch management VLAN and how to configure Management VLAN

External Resources

Management VLAN is used for managing the switch from a remote location by using protocols such as telnet, SSH, SNMP, syslog etc. Normally the Management VLAN is VLAN 1, but you can use any VLAN as a management VLAN. Cisco recommends not to use VLAN 1 and not to use any VLAN that carries user data traffic as Management VLAN. You must configure IP address and default gateway for Management VLAN.

Follow these steps to configure IP address and default gateway for Management VLAN.

omnisecu.com.sw01>enable
omnisecu.com.sw01#configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
omnisecu.com.sw01(config)#interface vlan 1
omnisecu.com.sw01(config-if)#ip address 192.168.100.28  255.255.255.0
omnisecu.com.sw01(config-if)#no shutdown
%LINK-5-CHANGED: Interface Vlan1, changed state to up
omnisecu.com.sw01(config-if)#exit
omnisecu.com.sw01(config)#ip default-gateway 192.168.100.1
omnisecu.com.sw01(config)#exit
omnisecu.com.sw01#

Do remember to use the "no shutdown" IOS interface mode command to bring the Management VLAN up. After configuring IP address and default gateway for Management VLAN, you can telnet or SSH to the switch to perform switch management functions.
