Command-Line Editing 33
The names of virtual LANs (VLANs), which are used in Mobility Domain™
communications, are set by you and can be changed. In contrast, VLAN
ID numbers, which the WX switch uses locally, are determined when the
VLAN is first configured and cannot be changed. Unless otherwise
indicated, you can refer to a VLAN by either its VLAN name or its VLAN
number. CLI set and display commands use a VLAN’s name or number
to uniquely identify the VLAN within the WX switch.
