I have 2 core switches conencted to each other via trunk.
Voip phones are in a seperate vlan and are distributed across both the switches
For recording the conversations i have connected a verint box to the core switch 1 and spanned the entire voice vlan to it.
Does this configuration span the traffic for the vlans on both the switches?
Will it be same if i make core2 as primary gateway and still keep the span on switch1?
Thanks in advance
The span would be able to capture all the traffic even from switch 2 since you indicated that switch1 is the primary gateway.
If However for some reason there is an HSRP failover and ur switch2 becomes active, the span configured would not be able to capture the traffic from switch2 as indicated by Jon
You will if you need to route the traffic off that vlan. But you won't if the traffic stays local to the vlan and does not cross the trunk port.
You will need to make sure you include the trunk port in your span session.
