2 Starting VLAN Manager
VLAN Manager can be started from AT-View Plus Device Manager or from the command line. In a
Windows environment, VLAN Manager can be started from the AT-View Plus program folder or
from the Run command of the Start menu.
You can start VLAN Manager from AT-View Plus Device Manager by clicking on Tool > VLAN
Manager on the main menu or by clicking on the VLAN Manager icon on the toolbar. If ATView Plus Device Manager is connected to a device, target host information is automatically passed
on to VLAN Manager so that the VLAN configuration of the device can be retrieved and displayed
in VLAN Manager's main window.

The menu bar provides access to VLAN Manager's operations.
The VLAN Information Window displays the VLAN configuration of the device being managed.
Information is organized in a table format with each row representing one VLAN definition and each
column representing one attribute of the VLAN. VLAN attributes displayed differ from one device
family to another. Refer to Section 6 - Device Support for the specific attributes displayed for each
device family.

4.2 Device Panel
A device panel that reflects the actual ports available on the target host is used to create or modify a
VLAN definition.
Note - The AT-A48/SC, AT-A48/MT and AT-A49 Expansion Modules for the AT-8350GB are not
supported and will not show up on the device panel.

Description
Not Selected This port does not belong to the VLAN.
This port is an untagged member of the VLAN.

Note - For the AT-8200XL Series, this port is considered a member of
the VLAN.
This port is a tagged member of the VLAN.
Note - For the AT-8200XL Series, this port is considered an untagged
(port-based) member of the VLAN.
Clicking on a port will change its state as follows:

4.3 VLAN Configuration Files
VLAN Configuration Files are Comma Separated Value (CSV) files containing VLAN definitions
and are used by the Import VLAN and Export VLAN functions.
The format of the VLAN Configuration File is as follows:
VLAN_Entry1_Name, VLAN_Entry1_Identifier, attribute1,
attribute2, etc.
VLAN_Entry2_Name, VLAN_Entry2_Identifier, attribute1,
attribute2, etc.
and so on...
The number and order of VLAN attributes, and their corresponding values, differ from one device
family to another. Refer to Section 6 - Device Support for details on the specific attributes for each
device family.
The following is an example of a VLAN Configuration File for the Rapier 24 device that contains
two (2) VLAN definitions:
prod, 2,"None", "21-24", No
test, 3, "1","2-6", No

to Multiple VLAN or 802.1Q Multiple VLAN, the connection with the device will be lost.
Furthermore, no warning message will be displayed before the connection is lost.
Note - Modifying the default VLAN definition will cause all other VLAN definitions to be deleted.
Furthermore, the affected device should be reset after this error occurs.

Note - After an Import VLAN operation, the default VLAN definition will have a failed status if one
of its ports is not associated with any other VLAN definitions. This is caused by the way the Import
VLAN operation works. The Import VLAN operation deletes the existing VLAN configuration on
the target device. Afterwards, VLAN Manager adds the VLAN definitions from the VLAN
Definition File in a sequential manner, starting with the Default VLAN definition. The problem will
occur if the VLAN Definition File contains VLAN definitions (other than the Default VLAN) that
have untagged ports. When the default VLAN definition with the missing untagged ports is added,
the target device will return an error since there are no existing VLAN definitions that have the
missing untagged ports.
