Help configuring VLANs on Dell PowerConnect 5448
Posted on 2009-12-17
I need to basically be pointed in the right direction as I'm not quite sure where to begin.
I have a Cisco ASA 5505 that is running the Security License upgrade that allows me to have multiple VLANs. It connects into a Dell PowerConnect 5448 switch and I need to know where to start for sectioning off the ports to different VLANs. Perhaps if someone can give me some pointers or direct me to a step by step guide to accomplishing building a successful VLAN assigned to a group of ports, that would be terrific. I can setup the ASA, but am clueless about the Dell.
I need 1 VLAN to span 8 ports power my iSCSI device that I am bringing up
I need 1 VLAN for the 6 Help Desk machines that will need domain access and internet
I need 1 VLAN for a lab that will occupy 2 ports that will only go to the Internet
I need 1 VLAN for administrators occupying 4 ports
And I would like a VLAN for my ESXi server farm.
Like I said, could you direct me to a concise and informative step by step on how to assign a VLAN from an ASA to route only to specific ports on the Dell?
I have telnet and web console access to the Dell, so either way is fine.
