Thank you for asking this question in the Support Community. There are several different ways to create VLANs on an ADTRAN switch. The NetVanta 1234, by default, has the VLAN 1 interface enabled with an IP address of 10.10.10.1 /24, and all switchports are assigned to VLAN 1. The VLAN interface is for management purposes (i.e. logging into the unit via telnet, SSH, HTTP, or HTTPS for configuration changes and troubleshooting; there can be only one active VLAN interface on the unit).
To configure additional VLANs on the NetVanta 1234 via the command line interface (CLI) issue the following commands:
SWITCH-NAME# configure terminal
SWITCH-NAME(config)# vlan <number>
To assign a VLAN to a specific switchport issue the following commands (VLAN 1 is assigned to all interfaces by default):
SWITCH-NAME# configure terminal
SWITCH-NAME(config)# interface switchport 0/<interface number>
SWITCH-NAME(config-swx 0/x)# switchport access vlan <number>
To configure VLANs in the web interface and get a general overview about the switching menu, please review the Understanding the Switch Menu in the AOS Web Interface document.
I hope that makes sense, but please do not hesitate to reply to this post with any additional questions or information. I will be happy to help in any way I can.

The Netvanta 1234 is a layer 2 switch that supports VLANs and multiple VLAN interfaces. The default VLAN is #1 and should remain the default VLAN. I typically leave VLAN #1 enabled on port #1 and use it for switch management. The default IP address from Adtran is 10.10.10.1.
To use the command line interface, you can connect to the CONSOLE port with a DB9 connector. You can also telnet to 10.10.10.1 provided the switch is at the default settings.
You can also access the switch at 10.10.10.1 using HTML from your browser.
I prefer the command line interface. When you connect you will have to go into ENABLE mode for which you will need the password. The default password is password.
(it will prompt for the password)
Switch# show ip in brief (displays any configured IP interfaces which includes VLANs)
(Note the # sign prompt. This indicates ENABLE mode.)
Switch# config t
Switch (config)# vlan 99 (This simple command creates a VLAN which is number 99. Now you have to decide what you are going to do with it.)
Switch (config-vlan-99)# exit
You will have to assign the VLAN to any ports that you want connected to the VLAN. You may need to create an Interface for the VLAN. I suggest that you search the Adtran website for white papers that describe configuring VLANS.
