VLAN 1 question
« on: August 31, 2015, 09:38:07 AM »
Ok so to start out here is the problem:

One of my clients is using VLAN 1 across a WLAN RING with 2 VSP 9000's and 6 Nexus 7k's. They are using VLAN 1 for layer 2 routing across the ring.(I fully do not support ever using VLAN 1!!!!!) I am trying to find out if i can some how move VLAN 1 of the default instance of 0 to example instance 1. I can not find any documentation that show how to move VLAN 1 off the default instance. (i believe that VLAN 1 can not be moved) I am also trying to talk the client into using a different VLAN! But they are very hard headed :)! Any help would be great! thanks everyone!

As far as I know it is not possible to remove VLAN 1.
The best practice is to remove all ports from VLAN1. Anyway in your scenario I suggest two possible solutions.
Move the customer to a different VRF or using SPB VLAN/ISID mapping so that the connected customer
can do stupid thinks like using VLAN1 and you have the rest of the network encapsulted so that you
can ignore everything that the customers is doing in his part of the newwork.

Cheers
Itīs always the networks fault!

The customer is using VLAN 1 Across its ring with 6 Cisco Nexus 7k's. I am trying to see if i can place VLAN 1 in instance 1. I have 2 ports on my VSP 9k that i have allowed on vlan 1 all other ports are removed from that vlan. I have continued to explain to the customer that they need to move everything away from VLAN 1 on the other end of the ring and we can build a different vlan for the routing. I am looking for something from Avaya that says VLAN 1 cant be moved from the default instance of 0. Thanks for all of the help!
