problem with configuring management VLAN

Switches / HubsNetwork Management
5 Comments1 Solution542 ViewsLast Modified:

my network is set up with the following VLANS

- vlan 1 for management (  telnet) , users and server
- vlan 4 for guests
- vlan 5 for voip traffic

i know that the vlan 1 is not recommended for management and data but changing it would probably impact our business

-  however , i would like to manage my switches ( telnet ,ssh )with other vlan rather than vlan1 , the issue is that i want to have different ips to manage my swithces rathter than telneting it through the same ip used for data

- i would like to keep vlan 1 for data , since changing vlan 1 to another vlan and keeping the same ip address for data in the same subnet  will require a downtime and at the same time will required some one to access the switch through console to do this changes , therefore i would like to manage my switches through another vlan ( lets say vlan 100 and give it a different ip address scheme rather than vlan1 )

- i would like to know if this is possible since vlan 1 will still be used for data and is still considered as the native vlan
- since i have 1 monitoring station for monitoring swithes , routes etc, will the port assigned to that station be in mgmt vlan and how would i see other neworks ( gateway router ) if that port is only assigned for mgmt vlan
- kindly guide me with the configuration for this scenario and what should be the default gateways for access switches and the core switch connected to router?
