Under certain conditions if a user executes the command:
set vlan <vlan_num> <mod/port>
from a Telnet Session, and if the vlan_num does not exist, the user may cause the switch to reset with the following exception:
Console> show log
Last Exception occurred on [data / time]...
Software version = 2.4(2)
