Per VLAN IP on Brocade ICX 6110 with Base L3 Capabilities

One of the projects that I am doing at work is set up Brocade ICX 6110 switches to be deployed in our data centers. I have decided once in a while I will be posting some of the things i’ve learned with that project. I’m so used to cisco switch commands to transitioning to brocades was a little bit of a learning curve. I am referring to how they treat trunks and vlans.

In the brocade universe and other vendors, they used tags to define trunks. Trunks on the other hand is defined as etherchannels, its crazy right? Anyway this blog is showing you the difference between creating a vlan and putting a management ip per vlan on a cisco switch and a brocade switch.

CISCO:

conf t
vlan 100
int vlan 100
ip address 192.168.1.100 255.255.255.0
int g0/1
switchport mode access
switchport access vlan 100

BROCADE ICX 6110:

conf t
vlan 100
untagged ethe 1/1/1
router-interface ve 100

int ve 100
ip address 192.168.1.100/24

Pretty neat….By the way, we have activated the basic L3 capabilities on that brocade switch or else it won’t be capable of putting IPs per vlan.
