I've been implementing the immensly performant fwsm for some time now, but allways at new customer sites. But now I've stumbled into a re-design of a huge existing network. 2 issues arrise; the transparent mode = the way to go obviously. To minimize the impact for the client. But 1. ALl the Vlan's are allready created on the MSFC's, So how can I assign them to the fwsm (without wreaking havoc)? And 2. Their entire Lan Ip-range/Partner IP-range are on vlan 1 (I know, I know...) and I May not touch this... sigh.
Annyone encounter a similar set-up and have more intelligent suggestions than I can come up with?
I humbly bow in gratitude.
