switchport trunk allowed vlan

Why would you add a string like "switchport trunk allowed vlan add 200-201", instead of just adding the VLAN's to the configuration?

 

full config

 


interface GigabitEthernet1/0/12
switchport mode trunk
switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,10,20,30,40,60,70,80,100,110,120,130,150
switchport trunk allowed vlan add 200-201

 

Is it because it was just added afterwards?

 

Thank you in advance

 

Isak

It is likely that 200-201 were not the most recent entries. It is significant that these are the highest numbers. There is a limit on the length of a line of entries. The first line of trunk allowed entries goes until it reaches the length limit. And then any additional entries get entered as trunk allowed add.
