invalid input detected at '^' marker while creating vlan on catalyst 3500 series xl

Hallo Experts,

I have possibly a very basic question.

Whilst i was trying to create vlan on catalyst 3500 series XL switch i got this "invalid input detected.." error which showed the vlan command as invalid.  This is how i started:

    switch> ena

    switch# conf t

    switch# vlan 51

and it showd the vlan command as invalid.

Why  can't i configure vlan ?

That is a REALLY OLD switch, and you don't access the vlan configuration from normal config mode. From a privileged exec prompt, use "vlan database" to configure the vlan's.

When you enter config t, it should put you in the config mode

(config)#

Do you get an error when you try?

config t

Thank you for the help. I knew my swtich was old but didn't think it is so old that i have to do it with vlan databse :). Thank you again.
