Question about management vlan

If I wanted a 99% isolated switch but would still like to access it via my management vlan what is the best way to do that?  A trunk that only allows my management vlan?

Re: Question about management vlan

If you only want to allow one vlan on the trunk then don't use a trunk, just use an access port that is allocated to the same vlan at both ends. You don't have to use a trunk for management, it's just that normally you want to pass at least 2 vlans on the uplink, one for data and one for management. But if you are only passing management traffic like i say, just use an access port.
