Reboot needed after adding VLAN?

Reboot needed after adding VLAN?

I need to add another VLAN to our existing network comprised of GS728TP switches.  Is it safe to do this while there is traffic, or does it require a reboot of the switch?

 

Thanks!

 

 

Model: GS728TP|ProSafe 24 ports PoE Smart switch with 8 PoE+ ports

Hi Makophin1,

 

Welcome to our community! 🙂

 

You can freely add another VLAN without rebooting the switch even if there's alot of traffic. But please make sure that the ports that you are going to configure is not being used so that your network will keep up and running.
