I have a CAT3750E and use the first 12 ports for server and the rest for phone and desktop. In the GUI, smart port, i see there are options to configure the port as Cisco router, switch, desktop, desktop and phone. Our servers have a few VMWARE machines/servers on one of the physical host. When i setup the port as Cisco+Desttop, only two machines, the physical host and the guest have IP address. So, i set the port as Desktop.
I also set another port as None and that works as well.
What is your recommendation for setting up the server ports on this switch without limitation of how many machine can use its port?
