This post continues my series on the differences between these three manufacturers and how they implement L2 and L3 VLANs.
Scenario 1: Create a Layer 2 VLAN
vlan database vlan 10
Scenario 2: Create a Layer 3 VLAN (that's routable)
interface vlan 10 ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
vlan 10 ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
interface vlan 10 ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0 routing
The biggest difference between all three manufacturers is that HP does not implement a separate VLAN interface for L3 configuration. Cisco and Dell both require you to go into interface vlan mode before configuring L3 information (IP addressing). Dell also requires the routing keyword to actually route that VLAN.
All three manufacturers do require you to input the command
ip routing if you want the switch to route packets
