I ran through the console and noticed that the CLI was unwittingly similar to Cisco IOS. Most of the basic L2 and L3 switch commands (e.g. switchport, spanning tree, ip route etc) are there, except VRF-lite which I used it extensively to separate the different routing domains for management and security purposes.
Another noticeable difference is that Dell doesn't allow you to perform routing on the management vlan interface, which is defaulted to vlan 1. If you intend to route on vlan 1, you would need to create a new vlan & assign it as the management vlan.
1) Creating a new vlan
Warning: The use of large numbers of VLANs or interfaces may cause significant
delays in applying the configuration.
2) Assign new management vlan
DellPowerConnect(config)#ip address ?
bootp Set the protocol to bootp.
dhcp Set the protocol to dhcp.
none Set the protocol to none.
vlan Configure the Management VLAN ID of the switch.
DellPowerConnect(config)#ip address vlan 4093
The default subnet for Management VLAN is 192.168.2.0/24. If it overlaps with your other VLANs, you would have to change the subnet as well.
