I noticed some months ago that I had a few devices on the network that were rather chatty and affecting network performance. Unfortunately there is nothing I can do with these devices to shut them up except isolate them. Up until now I have had a seven switch flat network. After talking with my vendor I decided that maybe it is time to implement VLANs. After all VLANs are not just for the massive enterprises. So I purchased a Layer 3 switch and so began my woes.
Here is what I have gotten done so far. My FireWALL/Router is a SonicWALL NSA240. My HP Procurve 2510G switches are all configured the same and the config for one of my 48 port switches is attached. I have 3 48 port and 4 24 port. With some help from my vendor I have the Layer 3 switch, a Brocade ICX6450-48 configured which will replace one of the HP 2510-48 switches. I have the DHCP scopes for each VLAN configured.
Here is my problem. One I am in need of a little education as to how to move devices into a VLAN as I have noticed the Brocade and the HP are using different terminology, similar but different. Second DHCP is not issuing IP addresses on the new VLANs. I can not ping the addresses of the VLANs which leads me to believe they are not being routed. Currently I have one of the new scopes activated for testing.
I made my vendor aware that I need this up and running by Wednesday.
