I want to change the management vlan on a 3500XL.
I have read that in L2 switches
A. There can be only 1 "interface vlan" up/up
B. The active interface IS the management interface.
However, on a 2950 and 3500XL, it looks like I need to change the "cluster management vlan"
Now, in my case, the switch is stan-alone. So its in its own cluster (or its the cluster commander)....
Issuing the command to change the cluster management vlan, moves the IP address from vlan1 to the new vlan
It looks exactly the same as doing it manually.
So, my question is, does this cluster management command required to change the management vlan for NON clustering purposes ??
My scenarios is :-
ip address 10.1.1.1 255.255.255.0
ip address 10.1.40.1 255.255.255.0
What I want to achieve is ping the ip address of the active VLAN. ie 10.1.40.1 .
This does not seem to work, with a host attached to access port with switchport access vlan 40.
I am pretty sure if I change the cluster management vlan, it will work (will have to wait a day or two to test)
But is that really the solution ?
