Hello. Thanks in advance for any help. I have 2 Cisco 3560's that i am getting ready to vlan. I also have 8 Dell 2708's that support vlans. my question is this; my 2708's are connected to the 3560's via Fiber. the fiber drops directly into the 3560's. do i set up the fiber ports as trunks or statically assign them to vlans? all of the fiber lines carry data for my workstation vlan.
It depends on your network design. If you have only one VLAN for all your users, and another VLAN for your servers, then you may skip VLAN configuration on your DELL switches, and setup your fiber ports as an "access port" with users VLAN.
However, if you want to separate users (for example, Accounting vs. Sales), and you cannot combine them "by the switch" (for example, all Accounting users on one switch, and all Sales users on another), then you need to create appropriate VLANs on your Dell switches, on your c3560 switches, and configure ports as a trunk.
