Vlans and IPMI

Unanswered Question
Apr 9th, 2007

I'm building out a large lab, and I am needing to implement ILO and IPMI since the lab will be a "lights out type environment".

To save ports off my aggregated switches (3750-E's) i'm using IPMI on Dells and for HP i'm using ILO (with the option to enable ILO on the primary Nic).

My ILO/IPMI traffic is on seperate VLAN 223 while my servers can be any 1 of 20 different vlans. How do i set my switch up to route both vlans?

You need to create a layer 3 SVI (switched virtual interface) for each vlan you want to route eg.

switch(conf t)#interface vlan 223

switch(config-if) ip address "address" "subnet mask"

switch(config-if)# no shut

You might also have to enable ip routing if it isn't already on

switch(conf t)#ip routing

Attached is a link to 3750-E ip routing configuration guide for more details.
