We are looking to upgrade the core switch from a Catalyst 4506 to a 6509. Being that the 4506 is currently the VTP server, how would you recreate teh 6509 to become the new VPT server? Would I bring them both online and configure the 6509 as a server too, but make sure the config and vlan.dat file was deleted? Or is that still risky?
I was also thinking, if I disable the trunk to my other client switches and have only my 4506 and 6509 online, make the 6509 a client switch. Once the VLAN information propogates, power off the 4506 and reconfigure the 6509 as the VTP server, followed by connecting the other client switches. Would that work?
I would like to learn the best practice for this procedure, so I do it the right way.
I'm looking to do a straight swap. We have some performance issues on the line cards on the 4506, so I want to pull it out completely. Plus that switch is old, and we need the capactiy of the 6500 series.
I wish we could get a 6800 series in here. The upper management people are cheap! I barely convinced them to get this 6500 in here. They only see $$$ and nothing else. But when the network is down, they ask why?
