hey guys, I have 4 2950s and 2 Vlans in them. I have IPed all the switches in the 10.10.10.0/24 network
I often find myself logging into any of the switches to change the VLAN on a port so the PC can get into either of the 2 VLANS we have.
VLAN 1 is the default one, so I have disabled it on all switches.
VLAN 2 is at 10.10.10.0/24
VLAN 3 is at 10.10.20.0/24
Sometimes I get a request that a certain PC needs to go from VLAN 2 to VLAN 3, so I am provided with the MAC address of of the PC and I have to manually login to the switches and look for it. If I am lucky, I can find the mac address at the first switch I log in to (I do sh mac-address)
Log into the switch and then ping the address. Then so a show arp | inc [ip address]. Then do a show mac-address address [mac address]. It will tell you the port or it will show it's on the connection to the other switch. On the other switch do the show mac-address address [mac address] and it will show the port. Here's a link that explains it with examples.
this is exactly what I have been doing so basically I am looking for a shorter method.
I know there exist something called Domain withing switches, so I want to think there is a way for a network admin to login to just one router and be able to tell where a PC is without jumping/telnetting into all the switches until the PC is found.
Router on a stick is when you connect one router to a switch that has two or more vlans.You configure subinterfaces on the fastethernet on the router and these subinterfaces will be the default gateways of your vlans on the switch
