Multiple VLANs on a single Cisco Catalyst switch port
Posted on 2006-11-15
I have a requirement for a connection to a storage array through a single network port.
The storage array can have a number of VLANs configured on it's network port, and at the switch port I need to replicate the same VLAN IDs and make sure all of the required VLANs are present on that switch port.
I know that I can set the switch port to trunk mode to allow a number of VLANs to be present on it, but isn't that a specific mode of operation that requires a trunk port at the other end, and my storage array therefore won't see the VLANs on the switch ?
How do I configure my switch port so that the VLANs on the switch can communicate with the VLANs on my storage array ?
