Voice Recording Setup

Unanswered Question
Dec 18th, 2007

I am trying to setup a voice recording system.

Anyways, I have 6 buildings all connected by Fiber. From the fiber we go to a 3560 and each building also has a 2801 with a couple of POTS for failover services.

So I am thinking if I span VLAN 5 (where the phones are) would I then get ALL phones? Or does SPAN (or monitor session) sort of limit itself to one switch?

Any help would be great.

I have this problem too.

Span is local to 1 switch. What you need to use is rspan. You need to configure a dedicated vlan for rpsan and add this vlan to the allowed vlans on the trunk back to your main building where your recorder server will be.

Please see this pdf for more details : http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst3560/software/release/12.1_19_ea1/configuration/guide/swspan.html
