Voice VLAN settings are applicable only for Cisco devices.
To speed port configuration workflows, you can select one interface or multiple interfaces for a device to change the admin status, description and VLAN settings. For example, this feature is handy if you want multiple interfaces to participate in the same data VLAN. There are two ways to approach this feature: directly from the Devices page, or by selecting a device on the Devices page, opening its Interfaces page and selecting ports from there.
Editing interfaces is done from the main Data Management –> Devices page.
4. The editable settings are Admin Status (Up or Down) and Description (click inside the field to edit). In some cases, owing to device permissions, the device type or other device settings, you may not be able to edit these values for the selected interface.
5. To edit VLANs for the chosen interface, click the VLAN tab. Figure 15.12 shows an example. VLAN editing also is subject to permission limitations based on the device, and on the device type.
Figure 15.11 Editing VLANs
6. Choose a data VLAN to assign to the port from the Data VLAN drop-down menu.
7. If supported, choose a voice VLAN (Cisco only) from the Voice VLAN drop-down menu.
8. Click the Extensible Attributes tab to add any attributes that are necessary for the interface.
9. Click Save & Close to close the interface editor.
To edit multiple interfaces for a device:
You can select one or more interfaces for configuration, define their settings in the dialog, and then select other interfaces and define different settings for them.
Once you change Admin Status, Data VLAN or Voice VLAN settings for any selected port, no automatic eversion exists to the original settings from the same editing session. You must cancel out of the Interfaces editor to reject any changes and begin with a new editing session from the Interfaces page. Use the Verify button to verify your changes.
5. Select the check boxes for one or more ports and define the Port Configuration settings for the following:
6. After making configuration changes to all ports, click Verify to check over your changes:
Figure 15.13 Verifying port configuration changes
7. Click OK. The changes are not committed by doing so.
8. If the port configuration changes are correct, click Save & Close or click the Scheduling icon at the top of the editor. To schedule this task, click the Schedule icon at the top of the editor. In the ScheduleChange panel, click Later, and then specify a date, time, and time zone. The Schedule icon is green when there is a pending scheduled task. You can reschedule the task if you have the applicable permissions.
When you complete the configuration, all port configurations in the session are combined into a single task by Grid Manager.
The Data Management –> Devices page allows you to immediately set the Admin Status, descriptions and VLAN settings for any selection of ports on a single device.
When you complete the configuration, Network Insight combines all port configurations in the session into a single task.
You can directly edit a device's interface listings in the Interfaces page. Double-click any table row and the fields that you can edit for the row, which consist of the VLAN ID, Admin Status and Description fields for each interface, open in an inline editing selection field.
Fields are editable as applicable to device types. If you are editing an interface on a L2 switch, for example, the VLAN ID field does not appear.
Figure 15.14 Editing Interface values inline.
Double-clicking a table row opens the editable fields for the selected record.
If editable fields are not present in the table display, you cannot change their values in the Interfaces page.
After making inline changes, click Save on the selected row to commit them. To prevent using any changes, click Cancel. This also de-selects the row.
When you make inline changes to an interface, a new task is created under Grid Manager, which you can view in the Task Manager page (for more information, see Viewing Tasks). A status icon appears next to the interface element you have changed, indicating the status of the new task and providing a link to the Task Manager page. New tasks appear with a status icon of Pending (||). When the new task completes, the icon changes to a green checkmark.
