I have recently taken over the role of the network administrator in our organisation and have worked with networks for several years however I am unsure regarding a configuration that has been applied on two of our switches.
The environment I have is made up of 9 switches. I have a stack made up of four 3750e switches, two 2960Gs, one 3550 and two 3560s. The environment is made up of four VLANS and the routing between these is done by the 3560s. (the 3750 stack will soon take over this role). I have HSRP enabled on the 3560s which works well.
In two weeks time I will be replacing our current firewall solution. The routing of traffic on the network will be impacted by the change. I have carefully planned out and tested the changes and impact however I noticed a rather odd configuration on the two 3560s. The previous guy has enabled RIP! I really do not think we need it as we are a small business with around 100 users, 60 servers (small but a financial institution) 15 printers, etc. I really think that all I need to use for now is the routing capabilities of the 3560s (which is enabled).
So I guess my question is how can I be sure that RIP is not being used? Is there anyway to monitor what it is doing on the switches?
