Subnet Mask.................................... 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway................................ 10.180.58.1
Burned In MAC Address.......................... 0019.B99E.6AA3
Network Configuration Protocol Current......... None
Management VLAN ID............................. 1

2. Remove IP address from Management VLAN and create new Management VLAN number.

PC62xx-LabNet#config
PC62xx-LabNet(config)#no ip address
PC62xx-LabNet(config)#vlan database
PC62xx-LabNet(config-vlan)#vlan 99
PC62xx-LabNet(config)#ip address vlan 99
PC62xx-LabNet(config)#end
PC62xx-LabNet#show ip int
Management Interface:
IP Address..................................... 0.0.0.0
Subnet Mask.................................... 0.0.0.0
Default Gateway................................ 0.0.0.0

PC62xx-LabNet(config)#interface vlan 1
PC62xx-LabNet(config-if-vlan1)#ip address 10.180.58.209 /24
PC62xx-LabNet(config-if-vlan1)#routing
PC62xx-LabNet(config-if-vlan1)#end
PC62xx-LabNet#show ip int
Management Interface:
IP Address..................................... 0.0.0.0
Subnet Mask.................................... 0.0.0.0
Default Gateway................................ 0.0.0.0
