I have a closed REP ring with administration vlan 10. I am just wondering if I change native vlan from current default vlan 1 to a unused vlan, eg 2 and not permit vlan 2 on trunks will I lose the ring or cause any outage?
I believe yes. You would loose your ring. Because REP sends LSL PDU's over the ring on the native VLAN. So, if you were to change the native VLAN & doesn't permit them over the ring, then i believe you would loose it.
Alright, just got it checked from my friend. As per him, the admin VLAN is used for TC Notifications & BPA Advertisements. Being a closed loop ring topology you have, you are free to go ahead with changes to your native VLAN as all the communication happens over admin VLAN once you have them configured or else by default it would be VLAN 1.
But do ensure care while doing this, as there is no specific documentation showing this & specifiying this. Better to do this off-business hours or with a proper outage schedule.
Do let me know how you go with it as i m even curious about this.
my guess is if you have devices in vlan 1, then you would have connection issues until you made that change on all the switches in the layer 2 domain because whatever the native vlan is.. The packets are not tagged in that vlan.
