Second switch vlan question
Posted on 2004-08-04
I recently asked Experts exchange:
I currently have 2 Dell 3348 Switches piggybacked.
They have not been managed.
We just added a Dell 5212 GB Switch.
One of the techs hooked it up last weekend to link the Servers together, it was not set up, just plugged in and doing it’s switching thing.
My questions are:
1. Can I set the switch up during business hours, in other words will doing this disturb who is connected? Or should this be done after hours. I am talking about the assigning of an IP and setting the switch to manage.
2. Currently the 2 3348 Switches are assigned an IP and running as VLAN1, will I have to make this VLAN2?
The first question was answered. ( I should do it on off hours)
But the second question still remains, can someone please advise?
Thanks in advance…
