This post will provide step by step difference of Cisco and Dell Layer 3 CLI configuration.
Cisco vs Dell VLAN Configuration
The table below shows how both Cisco and Dell Layer 3 Switch configure Layer 2 and Layer 3 VLANs:
- As seen from the above configuration, DELL is required to enter into VLAN database for creating the VLAN 100 unlike Cisco where we can directly issue VLAN 100 under config mode.
- Also, prerequisite for Cisco and DELL Layer 3 Switch to perform routing is to configure “IP Routing” in configuration mode.
For clarity of information , some of well known layer 3 switch each of Dell and Cisco include –
Dell = N2000,N3000,N4000
Cisco = 3850X,4500x,3560
