I've inherited a VDX 6740T and I'm trying to add an IP to a vlan / vlan interface.  VLAN has been created and assigned to the appropriate ports as tagged, and I've created a VE interface with matching ID.   However, I'm unsure how to add an IP to this.  

Anyone familiar with the Brocade VDX NOS?

Create VLAN
interface vlan 10
Create VE & IP under Rbridge configuration
rbridge-id 1
 interface Ve 10
  ip address 192.168.1.1/24
  !
  no shutdown

VLAN untagged on interface
interface TenGigabitEthernet 1/0/1
 switchport
 switchport mode access
 switchport access vlan 10
 no shutdown
Or VLAN tagged on interface
interface TenGigabitEthernet 1/0/1
 switchport
 switchport
 switchport mode trunk
 switchport trunk allowed vlan add 10
 switchport trunk tag native-vlan
 no shutdown

Hope this helps

helps a lot!   Can the ports work in some kind of hybrid mode (tagged and untagged)?

VDX does not have a dual mode as such

If you set native VLAN as untagged this may acheive the desired outcome
interface TenGigabitEthernet 1/0/1
no switchport trunk tag native-vlan
