Configuring a Layer 3 VLAN Interface 

The Layer 3 interface is a VLAN interface. Use the following configuration sequence:

  1. Create a VLAN using the set vlans vlan-id command.
  2. Associate an L3 interface with the VLAN using the vlans vlan-id l3-interface command.
  3. Configure the IP address and prefix length for the virtual interface using the vlan-interface interface vif address prefix-length command.

  • When all the interfaces in a VLAN are link-down, the VLAN interface will be link-down. The VLAN interface will be link-up only when at least one of the member interfaces is link-up.
  • Enable IP routing function before using this feature, for details please refer to Configuring IP Routing.

Configuring the MTU

  • When the MTU value is less than 1280 bytes, it will affect the normal functioning of IPv6. Therefore, set the MTU value of the VLAN interface to be greater than or equal to 1280 bytes for IPv6 to function normally.

  • When modifying the MTU from a value less than 1280 bytes to a value greater than or equal to 1280 bytes, you need to restart the switch to resume the normal functioning of IPv6.
