Cisco VLAN Trunking
Posted on 2010-08-27
If we have two Cisco 6500 switches and there are two Ten Gigabit ports used for trunking and there are Vlan's 4,5,6 & 7 being allowed to trunk between the two switches.
In the above scenario: If I want to create a new Vlan on one of the switches and want it to be allowed so that the new Vlan is trunked across the other switch - what do I have to do.
Do I create the VLan on Primary switch and then just add the vlan on the trunk port or do i create the same vlan on both switches and then add the new vlan on trunk ports on both switches.
Finally, what type of cable is required to trunk ports between two switches.
