Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) Management Configuration on ESW2-350G Switches
A Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) is a logical group of hosts combined to form a broadcast domain, irrespective of their physical location. The management VLAN is configured so that only the users configured on the management VLAN can access the device. Configuration of the management VLAN is necessary to add more security to the network. An attack on the management VLAN can breach the network security, so it is advised to change the management VLAN to something other than the default. This allows secure communication between members of VLAN across different physical LANs.
This article explains how to create and change the default VLAN on ESW2-350G switches.
