Brocade Switch: "error - port ethe X/X/X are not member of default vlan"

I really wish that Brocade would reword this message.  You know, when you want to add a port to a vlan, but it complains with this message: "error - port ethe X/X/X are not member of default vlan"
If you get this message, then you need to find what vlan the port you are trying to configure is already in.  Because, as the message states, its not in the default vlan.  Maybe it should say: "error - port ethe X/X/X is not a member of the default vlan, so you need to find what vlan its in"
Either way, its already configured somewhere, so find it, take it out of the vlan, and put it where you want it to be.

    1. It probably just takes some getting used to.
