Unanswered Question
Jul 8th, 2008

Hi,

Can any one help on this, if the network consists of 2 core switches and 10+ distribution switch, is it feasible to configure the VLANs in distribution switch. Whcih is the best config to do when designing a VLAN.

Is it good to keep the VLANs under core switch or distribution switch.

I have this problem too.

Not knowing ur full requirement, I will give a generic response.

I usually try to seperate VLANs from access to cross to core. so, I use access vlans on access switches , then route back to core switch on over one uplink VLAN.

That means no vlans are entering into core switch. In that case where can we run the HSRP.

Are u planning in terminating ur vlans on access switches. what I have in mind is :

ACC_SW01==CUST==ACCSW02, all on same VLAN, then you can run HSRP on access switches.

Please add more info on your requirement, so we can help you better.
