I have about six cisco edge (Access layer)switches, all are uplinked to a cisco backbone (Core layer) switch by using the normal hierarchy design that all we know already and get used to it. Each edge switch got certain layer 2 vlans configured. And as we know, all the vlans ip addressing and intervlan routing decisions exists in the backbone switch. All i want is to telnet to all the edge switches from single location without opening several telnet sessions. For example, if my host sit in swA and i want to telnet to swC, i don't need to open a telnet from swA to swB then swC. The trick here is that telnetting to the interface vlans on the backbone will open the session to that backbone not to the associated edge switches.
I solved this by creating a management vlan in each switch with ip address (SVI).It works but still forcing me to open various telnet sessions.
BTW, all trunks are dot 1Q.
Is there anyway to make me telnet to these switches centrally and without several sessions?
Any help would be appreciated.
