Management VLAN & multiple subnets
Posted on 2008-11-19
A client has three subnets, three routers and four switches:
2 x WS-C2950-24T
Each switch and router are on their own subnet, so when we setup the management VLAN for these sites, do we place all of the switches on VLAN1 or do we place each switch on their own managment VLAN? E.g. 192.168.0.0/24 on VLAN1, 192.168.1.0/24 on VLAN2, 192.168.2.0/24 on VLAN3?
My line of thinking is that because each router and switch is on their own subnet that each management VLAN would have to be assigned a distinct VLAN? Yes? No? Try again?
