How to route VLAN 1 on PowerConnect 62xx series switches


Routing is not allowed on the Management VLAN within the PowerConnect 6200 series switches. Changing the management VLAN should not change the default untagged VLAN membership to the new Management VLAN. This article will provide the steps to allow changing of the Management VLAN, thereby allowing routing on VLAN 1.

  1. Verify Management VLAN IP Address
    1. console#show ip interface
      Management Interface:
      IP Address........................................0.0.0.0
      Subnet Mask.....................................0.0.0.0
      Default Gateway.................................0.0.0.0
      Burned In MAC Address.......................... 5C26.0A00.0000
      Network Configuration Protocol Current......... DHCP
      Management VLAN ID............................. 1
  2. Remove the IP Address from the Management VLAN
    1. console#config
    2. console(config)#ip address none
  3. Add the new Management VLAN
    1. console(config)#vlan database
    2. console(config-vlan)#vlan 99 *****The new Management VLAN may be any valid VLAN, but to avoid other conflicts it is recommended to use a VLAN not already in use.
    3. console(config-vlan)#exit
    4. console(config)#ip address vlan 99 *****Use the VLAN number designated in step b
  4. Add an IP address to VLAN 1 and enable routing
    1. console(config)#interface vlan 1
    2. console(config-if-vlan1)#ip address 192.168.3.1 255.255.255.0
    3. console(config-if-vlan1)#routing
Note: IP routing must be enabled globally, to enable routing globally:
console(config)#ip routing
To verify VLAN 1 is routing, use:
console#show ip route
