Viewing the configuration for a particular VLAN (CLI)


show vlans <vlan-id>

Uses the VID to identify and display the data for a specific static or dynamic VLAN.

The following describes the fields displayed with this command (see example output):

802.1Q VLAN ID

The VLAN identification number, or VID.


The default or specified name assigned to the VLAN. For a static VLAN, the default name consists of VLAN-x where x matches the VID assigned to that VLAN. For a dynamic VLAN, the name consists of GVRP_x where x matches the applicable VID.


Port-Based, static VLAN.


Protocol-Based, static VLAN


Port-Based, temporary VLAN learned through GVRP. See GVRP.


Indicates whether a port-based VLAN is configured as a voice VLAN. See Using voice VLANs.


Indicates whether a VLAN is configured for Jumbo packets. For more on jumbos, see "Port Traffic Controls" in the management and configuration guide for your switch.

Port Information

Lists the ports configured as members of the VLAN.


Shows whether a port is a tagged or untagged member of the listed VLAN.

Unknown VLAN

Shows whether the port can become a dynamic member of an unknown VLAN for which it receives an advertisement. GVRP must be enabled to allow dynamic joining to occur.
