I inherited a nice little nugget. I am curious how I can go about flattening these vlans so I can create some simple vlans that are easy to manage. They way this admin has it - is that if a printer needed to be physically moved within the office environment the port needed to be issues the switchport access command. This is not desirable and I am not certain why this practice was used. The switch is a L3 3750 switch.
The future state is noted below. I suppose I would like to know, how can I transition to the desired future state.:
Oh and of course I would like to do this with minimal interuption :)
FUTURE STATE: (where I want to be)
Vlan2: would be infrastructure this is where servers etc would be added that require a static IP.
VLAN12: Is where I would put any PBX related devices that require static IP
VLAN14 Guest wireless (can be DSL)
VLAN17 I would setup a RF GUN vlan (wireless)IP would be via DHCP
VLAN 99 is where my PC's and printers sit on. this is the vlan wheer almost 99 percent of the devices would sit on.
everything would be 22 bit mask.
The idea is if you plug a printer in to any port that is on vlan 99 it would give it an ip addy via dhcp then the admin can go into it and make it static. and does not need to manually flip ports for it to function and easy to administer. And of course same with pc's just plug and go and do not need to administer the switch. There are several IDF's and I would use VTP
Please review attachment of current state.
Any ieas? Hints? Tips?
Massive amounts of aspirin?
