Connect or Bridge device management subnet to main subnet (routing?)

Hello Experts,

My company's main network lan subnet is 192.168.27.x (255.255.255.0)

I would like to put our devices management on another subnet 192.168.29.x  (Devices I'm refering to are switch mananement IP's, Dell Server "idrac" management, Dell Equallogics San management, etc.)

I have a SonicWall NSA 3500 that is my network's gateway @ 192.168.27.1

My goal is to allow .27's to get to .29's - basically connecting or bridging subnets.  Can you instruct me how to possibly accomplish this?

Thank you very much in advance!

Hi high_sobo,

Where does the .29 live now? How is it connecting to the SonicWALL (VPN, plugged into a port on the SonicWALL)? What does the topology look like?

Thanks.

diverseit,

Sorry - I guess I'm a VLAN idiot.  We have a VLAN "28" that lives on a Dell Powerconnect 8132 - but it is assigned by individual ports on the switch ... so let call that a "hardware" verision.  The SonicWall has 2 objects that route between 28 & 27 so we can get into the management of our Server & Sans.

We would like to create a VLAN "29" and put all the managemetn on it.  Make a long story short, we have a consultant coming in who is going to create the VLAN's and connect us.

Next week (hopefully) we are getting a ShoreTel phone system that started this all - our IP range is fill (27) and we want to put the phone in 26, mgmt in 29...

We just completely didn't know where to start.. so sorry I'll close this answer and give you the point for your time and effort!
