How does one assign a network management traffic (rip, BPDUs, CDP, etc.) to a VLAN? I know to assign a computer to a VLAN, you simply add the port in that VLAN, but what I do not understand is adding network traffic to VLAN when they do not have ports. I have read countless documentations about uses of VLANs, and it was mentioned in several of the documentations that you can separate network management traffic by putting them in VLANs.
say, you no longer want your management vlan to be VLAN1, so you create VLAN25 for just management traffic, how to you assign the triffic to that VLAN? i know fow a trunk you can just allowed the traffic with this command ==switchport trunk allowed vlan add 5,6,2==. but how do you do this without the trunk?
Depends what you mean by management traffic. If you mean the vlan used to remotely login to switches to adminster them just make sure that no user end devices are allocated into that vlan ie. only switches should be allocated IP addresses from this vlan.
As for CDP, PagP, VTP, well these will still be sent on vlan 1 and you can't change this but what you can do is make sure that no devices are allocated into vlan 1 so no device anywhere is allocated an IP address from vlan 1 subnet.
