I've read in some places that it is not advised to use Vlan 1 for security reasons. Is this a real good idea or is it more of pain to implement? If it is something that should be setup and used, what are good tips for making the transition and what all things need to be moved from vlan 1.
Those are the exact reasons I've been thinking about this. However on 2960'2 and 3560's how do you change the management vlan to something else? Also isn't STP and CDP info always transmitted over vlan 1. If it's pruned will the not work correctly?
"CDP, VTP, and PAgP updates are always forwarded on trunks with a VLAN 1 tag. This is the case even if VLAN 1 is cleared from the trunks and is not the native VLAN. If VLAN 1 is cleared for user data, these is no impact on control plane traffic that is still sent using VLAN 1."
