I have a Cisco 3560 layer 3 Switch which is connected to multiple managed and unmanaged non-Cisco Switches.
I want to implement VLAN and do the VLAN routing on 3560 Switch.
Since these manageable and unmanageable switches are not under our control for VLAN configuration and also feasibility of VLAN configuration in these switches is not sure.
********So can I configure the Cisco 3560 switch ports connecting to these non-Cisco switches as access ports and keep all these ports in different VLAN so that entire switch behind the 3560 will be considered in a single VLAN. Then I will configure the SVI for all these VLAN on 3560 and perform the VLAN routing. *********
My doubt is that somewhere Cisco document says that both end of access port should be in Same VLAN otherwise error message comes and port doesn?t works.
