Powerconnect 3524 VLAN Setup

This question is answered

I'm trying to set up two VLANs on a Powerconnect 3524 but I'm having trouble selecting the range of ports. I need two VLANs set up with 12 ports each.

I've typed in:

interface range ethernet 1/g1-1/g12 

but I get

wrong number of parameters or invalid range, six or characters entered

 How is my syntax wrong? I found a document entitled 'VLAN-Based Network Segregation' that is pretty helpful but it doesn't address the 35xx series powerconnects.

Here's the link to that document: http://www.dell.com/downloads/global/products/pwcnt/en/app_note_8.pdf

Anything help would be much appreciated.

  • You would need to enter the management vlan interface.  Then exit back out to global to set the gateway if still needed.

    console#config

    console(config)# interface vlan 1

    console(config-if)# ip address 192.168.1.2 /24

    console(config-if)# exit

    console(config)# ip default gateway 192.168.1.1 /24

  • interface range ethernet 1/e1-12  

    or

    interface range ethernet 1/g1-4

    Both these commands are working on our test switch.  

    1.  The switch is limited to just 4 possible Gigabit ports.

    2.  Leave out the 1/g on the end of the port range

    Hope this helps,

    Keep us updated.

  • Still getting the same message : | I had used the wizard to set up the inital ip, subnet, and gateway address. Perhaps, I need to start from fresh and avoid the set up wizard completely?

  • Yes,  I would start over and not use the wizard.  Also,  I would recommend updating the firmware on the switch.  Here is a link to the current firmware download.

  • I deleted the startup configuration, then proceeded to set up the switch again. Problem is when I'm not running the wizard I can't seem to set the ip and subnet for the switch itself. I see that in config mode you can use 'ip default-gateway' to set the default gateway but there isn't a command for setting the ip address. Where is this capability?

  • Thanks alot! I did get it set up correctly. FYI, to set up the ethernet range on the first vlan(after creating it) I had to input

    interface range ethernet e1-24
