CLI memo #1 : creating a Vlan with Brocade NOS

Here is a quick memo of some CLI commands I use. Just a quick reminder for the few commands I may need on my daily operations.

Today’s task is just creating a vlan on a Brocade network switchs, running NOS (Network OS).

conf t
interface vlan <vlan id>
description <your vlan description>

Yes, you silly Cisco-Admin, you read it right : @Brocade NOS, with this command you don’t create an SVI, but just a vlan 🙂

A quick extract from the Admin Guide:

On Brocade VDX hardware, VLANs are treated as interfaces from a configuration point of view. By default all the DCB ports are assigned to VLAN 1 (VLAN ID equals 1).

The vlan_ID value can be 1 through 3963. VLAN IDs 3964 through 4090 are internally-reserved VLAN IDs.
However, the reserved-vlan command can modify this range. VLANs above 4090 are not configurable. Refer to the Network OS Command Reference.

Here are some links to deep dive in Brocade Network OS, as usual you have to RTFM to become a master:

There is some other basic command I may cover later like VCS, port-channels, etc …
