Bad practice I know but we currently manage our 2950 switches using an IP address assigned to VLAN 1. We would like to change this to use a new VLAN with a different subnet which will also mean changing the default gateway. I have tried this and although it works fine I can't do it without a console connection as I lose connectivity during the changes. It also seems to require a reload after making the changes as it seems to maintain the old default-gateway even though I have changed it!!
Does anyone know if there is a way of managing these changes without either reloading the switch or having to make the changes via a console port.
first, change mgmt vlans, then create the new default gateway? If not, that might be the reason that the old gateway is still there. Also, on any switch that supports mls, its better to use a default route than the default gateway command. Example:
