i have redundant 4507 and 4503 connected by 2 gigabit in the main bulding and 4 other bukding contains 4503 , i want to make vlans "around 8 vlans" for my campus. how can i start making this vlans and which protocol i use.
and how can i use vtp in this design.
all catalyst connected to the main 4507 and 4503 by fiber optic.
Could i just clarify what you mean by dynamic and static vlans.
Presumably by dynamic you mean that when a user logs in the mac-address of their machine determines what vlan they are put into.
Whereas static means you assign the port on the switch to the vlan regardless of which machine connects to the port.
It depends on your users. If most of them work from the same desk every day then static vlans are generally a better option. This is what most people tend to go with.
If you have a highly mobile workforce within your buildings and you have to allocate them into the same vlan wherever they are then you need to go with dynamic vlans but there is an administrative overhead with this in that you have to maintain a mac-address to vlan mapping on Vlan Membership Policy Server.
Unless there is a very good reason to go with dynamic i would recommend static.
Hope i have understood correctly.
Oh and here is the link i forgot in the first post.
Many thanks for the rating.
