Here is my situation. I am sitting at ground floor and I would like to monitor a laptop which located at 1st floor. In order to do that, i need to configure RSPAN. Can you anyone share the RSPAN configure with me? Attached is the network diagram.
Are you running Native IOS on the 6500's or Hybrid OS (CatOS + IOS).
We will be able to do it. There is a limitation on 2950's that the intermediate switches should be other than 2950 and as we are using 6500 we will be able to work it out. Follow the steps
1. Please make sure that you have to create a separate vlan which will be dedicated only for carrying the RSPAN traffic.
2. Designate the Vlan as the rpan vlan. Config
Do this on all the switches..
3. Configure the Source session on 2950-E and the destination session on 2950-A. 6500's will only carry the RSPAN traffic and pass it on to the 2950-A.
Switch(config)# monitor session 1 source interface fa 0/x
Switch(config)# monitor session 1 destination remote vlan 901 reflector-port fastethernet0/y <--- Make sure that nothing is connected to the reflector port.
Switch(config)# monitor session 1 source (Specifiy the source)
Switch(config)# monitor session 1 destination remote vlan 901
Switch(config)# monitor session 1 source vlan remote vlan 901
Switch(config)# monitor session 1 destination interface fastethernet0/1
Use the following links for RSPAN session.
HTH,Please rate if it does.
