Create VLANs

Learning Objectives Upon completion of this lab, you will be able to: • Cable a network according to the topology diagram • Perform basic configuration tasks on a switch • Create VLANs • Assign switch ports to a VLAN • Add, move, and change ports • Verify VLAN configuration • Enable trunking on inter-switch connections • Verify trunk configuration • Save the VLAN configuration
Task 1: Prepare the Network
Step 1. Cable a network that is similar to the one shown in Figure 1.
Step 2. Clear any existing configurations on the switches, and initialize all ports in the shutdown
Task 2: Perform Basic Switch Configurations
Step 1. Configure the switches according to the following guidelines:
• Configure the switch hostname.
• Disable DNS lookup.
• Configure an EXEC mode password of class.
• Configure a password of cisco for console connections.
• Configure a password of cisco for vty connections.
Step 2. Enable the user ports on S2 and S3.
Task 3: Configure and Activate Ethernet Interfaces
Configure the PCs. You can complete this lab using only two PCs by simply changing the IP addressing
for the two PCs specific to a test you want to conduct. Alternatively, you can configure all six PCs
with the IP addresses and default gateways.
Task 4: Configure VLANs on the Switch
Step 1. Create VLANs on switch S1.
Step 2. Verify that the VLANs have been created on S1.
Step 3. Configure, name, and verify VLANs on switches S2 and S3.
Step 4. Assign switch ports to VLANs on S2 and S3.
Step 5. Configure management VLAN 56 on each of the switches.
Step 6. Configure trunking and the native VLAN for the trunking ports on all three switches.
Verify that the trunks have been configured.
