The first obvious question is are you running routing code?

You also need at least one port in the vlan.


conf t
vlan 10
untagged eth 1/1/1
router-interface ve 10
interface ve 10
ip address x.x.x.x/x

It was answered in your other thread about this topic - you are running a layer 2 firmware on that 6610. You need the layer 3 firmware to allow the layer 3 interface. 

Example filename for routing firmware: SWR08030h.bin (the 'R' in the 3rd position indicates routing)

I've got the same issue.  Using a legacy layer 3 switch GFS648POE.  configuration guide says it should be capable of layer 3 ip routing between vlans, but none of the layer three base level commands seem to work.  The unit was purchased surplus with 7.2.02g firmware on it.  What do I need to make it layer 3 aware?
