vlan access


vlan access <VLAN-ID>

no vlan access [<VLAN-ID>]


Creates an access interface and assigns an VLAN ID to it. Only one VLAN ID can be assigned to each access interface.

VLANs can only be assigned to a non-routed (layer 2) interface or LAG interface. By default, all interfaces are routed (layer 3) when created. Use the no routing command to disable routing on an interface and change the interface to a layer 2 interface.

The no form of this command removes an access VLAN from the interface in the current context and sets it to the default VLAN ID of 1.

Configuring interface 1/1/2 as an access interface with VLAN ID set to 20:

switch(config)# interface 1/1/2

switch(config-if)# vlan access 20

Removing VLAN ID 20 from interface 1/1/2:

switch(config)# interface 1/1/2
switch(config-if)# no vlan access 20


switch(config)# interface 1/1/2
switch(config-if)# no vlan access
