I have a 3750 switch. Layer 3. I have all ports right now in VLAN 1. I need to point the PCs on this VLAN to an NTP Server that will be on a different subnet.
NTP server will plug into port 23.
There are probably two ways to do this.
First, I could add another VLAN interface like 1000 and put an IP on it then put port 23 in VLAN 1000. Then put a static route to the NTP server.
Or could I just put an IP address on the port and the PCs will see a route to it? Seems to me I am missing on step on this second solution.
Any third/better options?
With your first option you wouldn't need a static route as both vlan interfaces are on the same switch so they would be seen as directly connected.
Your first option is the way to go. Using routed ports on a L3 switch an ip address is used primarily for connection to other L3 devices not servers.
