Configuring a management VLAN on a WLAN device
To use a remote network management system to centrally manage APs, create a VLANIF interface on each AP and configure a management IP address for the VLANIF interface. You can then log in to an AP through STelnet and manage it using its management IP address. If a user-side interface is added to the VLAN, users connected to the interface can also log in to the APs. This brings security risks to the AP. In this case, you can configure the VLAN as a management VLAN to prohibit access or dot1q-tunnel interfaces from being added to the VLAN. An access interface or a dot1q-tunnel interface is connected to users. The management VLAN forbids users connected to access and dot1q-tunnel interfaces from logging in to the AP, improving AP security. You can configure a management VLAN as follows: 1. Run the system-view command to enter the system view. 2. Run the vlan xx command to enter the VLAN view. 3. Run the management-vlan command to configure a management VLAN. After a management VLAN is configured, only trunk or hybrid interfaces can be added to the management VLAN. VLAN 1 cannot be configured as a management VLAN. 4. Run the quit command to exit from the VLAN view. 5. Run the interface vlanif xx command to enter the VLANIF interface view. 6. Run the ip address ip-address { mask | mask-length } [ sub ] command to configure an IP address for the VLANIF interface. After the configuration is complete, you can run the stelnet command to log in to the AC to manage APs. 7. Check the configuration. Run the display vlan command to view information about the management VLAN in the line starting with an asterisk sign (*).

What is the purpose of creating VAPs on a WLAN device
A VAP is created to provide different services, including parameter settings such as security, traffic, and interfaces.

How to create a Portal authentication user on a WLAN device

How to create VLANs in a batch
Run the vlan batch command in the system view to create VLANs in a batch. Create 10 contiguous VLANs: VLAN 11 to VLAN 20. system-view [HUAWEI] vlan batch 11 to 20 Create 10 discontiguous VLANs in a batch: VLAN 10, VLAN 15 to VLAN 19, VLAN 25, VLAN 28 to VLAN 30. system-view [HUAWEI] vlan batch 10 15 to 19 25 28 to 30 NOTE: You can create a maximum of 10 discontiguous VLANs or VLAN range at one time. If there are more than 10 VLANs, run this command multiple times. For example, the vlan batch 10 15 to 19 25 28 to 30 command creates four discontiguous VLAN ranges.

Precautions that should be taken when a management VLAN is configured on a WLAN device
Pay attention to the following points when configuring a management VLAN on a WLAN device: 1. VLAN 1 cannot be configured as a management VLAN. 2. After a VLAN is configured as a management VLAN, interfaces added to this VLAN must be trunk or hybrid interfaces.
