Cisco 3650 and 802.1q encapsulation

Hi,

I have a Cisco 3650 running software version 03.06.03E.

I noticed that I cannot set the encapsulation to dot1q even though I have configured the port as a trunk.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Current configuration : 248 bytes
!
interface GigabitEthernet1/0/1
 description Switchport Trunk Configuration
 switchport access vlan 999
 switchport trunk native vlan 998
 switchport trunk allowed vlan 998,999
 switchport mode trunk
 switchport nonegotiate
 load-interval 30

end

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When I look at the interface configuration, it says its a trunk port.

switch#sh interfaces g1/0/1 trunk

Port        Mode             Encapsulation  Status        Native vlan
Gi1/0/1     on               802.1q         other         998

Port        Vlans allowed on trunk
Gi1/0/1     none

Port        Vlans allowed and active in management domain
Gi1/0/1     none

Port        Vlans in spanning tree forwarding state and not pruned
Gi1/0/1     none
switch#

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So I believe that if a port is made a trunk port, the encapsulation mode by default would be a 802.1q. Would that be correct ?

Thank you.

Cheers,

  SN
