Adding VLAN Subinterfaces

You can add VLAN subinterfaces to the Cloud Edge physical interface that receives VLAN-tagged packets. You can add either L2 or L3 VLAN subinterfaces, depending on the setting of the parent interface. You must configure each L3 VLAN subinterface with a unique IPv4 address and netmask.

Important:

Each VLAN subinterface VLAN ID must match the VLAN ID added by the IEEE 802.1Q-compliant router. The VLAN ID can be any number between 1 and 4094 (0 and 4095 are reserved).

  1. View all Cloud Edge network interfaces.
    • Cloud Console: Gateways > (Selected Gateway) > Network > Interfaces

    • On-Premises Console: Network > Interfaces

  2. Click the VLAN add configuration icon () in the Action column.
  3. Specify VLAN settings.
    Option Description
    Name Name the VLAN subinterface.
    Type L2 VLAN or L3 VLAN displays automatically, depending upon the parent interface.
    Mode For L3 interfaces, use the Mode drop-down list to set whether the subinterface uses a dynamic or static address.
    VLAN ID Specify the VLAN ID that matches the VLAN ID of the packets received by this VLAN subinterface. You cannot change the VLAN ID of an existing VLAN subinterface. The VLAN ID can be any number between 1 and 4094 and must match the VLAN ID added by the IEEE 802.1Q-compliant router or switch connected to the VLAN subinterface.
