- Silver, 250 points or more
OK. I know is not good practice using Vlan1 for regular data traffic, but this is how is been in our network until now (Our LAN includes 2 Cat6500 and 2 Cat3550). We are now deployng several VMware servers with virtual switches. This virtual switches require all Vlans to be tagged (included VLAN1) so we have to change our VLAN1 behaviour. I've seen 2 ways to do so:
1) tag vlan1 (native)
2) changing native vlan1 to another VLAN.
So I have some questions:
- What do you think is the best option in order to minimize configuration changes and impact in the network?
- I'm assuming both options require configuration changes in every switch of our network, is that right? I'm not sure if in case 2) only configuration changes in trunks to vmware switches are needed.
