I am very green with this managed switch stuff. Please be patient, if needed I can seperate the sub questions, but thought for a pro it would be easy to quickly answer.
I just picked up a nice little cisco cat 3500xl switch and am attempting to grasp managed switches. I started it up and connected to it, set it up using an address We use for our internal network 18.104.22.168 mask 255.255.255.0. I am planning on moving the switch to a remote office that uses 128.0.0.x for their addresses. I want to managed it easily in that network and expect I need to change the switches managemet address, but have not found any help in a couple of days looking.
Do I need to just start the config over? cannot believe this to be the case with a nice cisco product.
Is this manditory? I dont think I need to change the management ip but think it best to keep the switchs mgt ip on the same subnet as the rest of network.
Please help me to make this IP change, and if possible please try to clear up the other questions I had.
