How can I make a specific port a management port on a Cisco switch for auditing
Posted on 2013-10-25
I was wondering if it is possible to create or indicate another port on a different VLAN to act as a management port and still keep the default management port on VLAN 1. I have created a 2nd VLAN to handle all network traffic and now I have a requierment to audit my switch's. I wanted to install the CNA software onto one of my servers connected to VALN 2 as well as GFI Events Manager to be able to pull audit info from that specific port. Also, I have multiple switchs connected in series and want to be able to pull thier info as well but I need to pull it from just the one switch. Setup is as follows:
VLAN1= Unclassified / Management
Port 23= server that would be used to pull auditing info from switches
I'm not sure if any of this is possible but would greatly appreciate any help.
