You should use the CLI to modify the management vlan via a console connection in case you make any mistakes and lose access to the switch.
Follow the format below to change the management vlan
1) Undo the IP address for the Vlan 1 interface if you already have one configured.
2) Undo the vlan 1 interface
3) Create the vlan you want to use for management and assign the necessary ports to it.
4) Change the management vlan to the new vlan
5) Go into the new management vlan interface and configure an IP address and subnet mask for it.
