S5700 unable to create multiple VLAN interfaces

Hi, Community!

This post addresses the issue of a S5700 unable to create multiple VLAN interfaces. Please check the information displayed below.

Huawei S5700


I am trying to configure a S5700 for 2 VLAN's by running interface vlanif 10.

I am getting the Error: Can not create this interface because the interface number of this type has reached its maximum.

I can get around this by running undo interface vlanif 1, but this will only allow me to configure 1 VLAN interface.

Any suggestions on this issue of a S5700 unable to create multiple VLAN interfaces? Thanks!

S5700 LI and S5300 LI supports only one vlanif interface on the older version. You need to upgrade the system to V200R010C00SPC600, mainstream version to overcome this limitation.
