GS1200-8 - Management VLAN (Firmware V1.00(ABME.4)C0)

In firmware V1.00(ABME.4)C0 for the GS1200 switch series there is a new feature implemented:
  1. ...
  2. Management VID is VLAN 1 only.
According to the wording it seems the management VLAN is fix on VLAN 1 and this VLAN cannot be changed by the owner.

While limiting management to a single VLAN is quite desireable, it is suboptimal to limit it to VLAN 1 without the possibility to change this setting according to local needs. Actually, it is best practise to move away management from VLAN 1 (which is the default VLAN and therefore prone to unwanted traffic/attacks). Furthermore it is best practise to not use VLAN 1 at all due to security considerations.

I'd like to open a feature request to enable the administrator to individually set a management VLAN as is the case with the GS1900 series from Zyxel.

Kind regards,

    I'd like to second senfsosse. I recently bought a GS1200 as an extension to my GS1920 in my small-business+home setup. Not being able to use the same VLAN ID to use for my internal management network like I use everywhere else is an annoyance to say the least.

    @Zyxel_Steven Any news here?

    There has the workaround that downgraded to previous firmware version, it doesn't limit any Management VID, which means any VID can access the web interface of GS1200 series.

    Currently, GS1200 hasn't plan to allow to change its Management VID 1.
