If you already have a design put down on paper (VLAN, IP Addresses, What port need to be added into the VLAN) you can utilize the following articles to configure a basic L2/L3 network with routing:

I have a problem configuring distribution switch and core switch.

1. Our distribution is no assigned IP. only VLANS, working as a switch no routing.
2. Our core switch has assigned IP for all VLANS. How can I establish a connection from distribution to core through vlan? how can I know if my vlans are successfully transport without ip address in distribution. lastly is it possible to ping core to distribution in this set up? or laptop connected to distribution and ping the core?ping core and distribution not working without IP set up but our set up in distribution is only VLAN...IP's are in core.

Thanks

##Configuring VLANs
conf vlan default delete ports all
create vlan vr vr-default
conf vlan tag
conf vlan ipaddress <10.0.0.0/24>
conf vlan add ports [tagged or untagged]

##Configure VLAN Routing
enable ipforwarding
enable ipforwarding vlan

##Configure Default Gateway
configure iproute add default [i]

##Configure Static Route (if needed)
config iproute add 10.1.25.0/24 10.1.8.1

##Configure LAG (if needed)
enable sharing 1:47 grouping 1:47, 2:47, 3:48, 4:48 algorithm address-based L3_L4 lacp
configure vlan add ports 1:47 untagged

##Configure Port Speed and Duplex (if needed)
config port 1 auto off speed 100 duplex full
config port 1:1 auto off speed 100 duplex full
