how to create a default vlan ip address for extreme network switch

Extreme Networks use ExtremeXOS software that is different from other network product vendors such as Cisco, HP, and Dell’s switch software.

This example bellow shows you how to setup the default VLAN management IP address on Extreme Networks Switch:


X460-48p.1 #configure vlan default ipaddress 192.168.1.1/24

Above example assigns class C management IP address to the default VLan. Similarly, you can specify the subnet mask instead of the class.


X460-48p.1 #configure vlan default ipaddress 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0

Both of the examples above will accomplish the same task.

The following command assigns a link local IPv6 address to a VLAN named management:

X460-48p.1 #configure vlan default ipaddress ipv6-link-local
