Thank you for post @Maria-Victoria

 

by renaming a sub-interface, do you mean changing the interface ID?

I do not believe it is possible to change it. You will have to delete the sub-interface and create it again with new interface ID. Technically, the interface ID does not have to match Vlan ID (Tag), however it looks ugly to have mismatch between them. 

 

Kind Regards

It should be possible by exporting the config, then editing the xml to replace all instances of the interface name and then importing and committing the modified config.
