If you have a hardware refresh project in place and have Layer 3 switches in production that are using static IP addresses (Virtual Chassis mostly) and a few single non VC switches with only 48 ports, if you have ample IP addresses available in your "management" IP range, how would you manage the static IP addresses and DNS names? Just looking for the leanest approach. All clients are using DHCP. I was thinking of using different IP addresses and using a temporary DNS name by just using the same DNS Entry and appending it with -temp. Seems like a lot of different ways to approach this.
