Let me start off by saying I am a newbie to Cisco. I have some very basic knowledge on how the IOS works.
That being said - I am looking to deploy Cisco Network Assistant to manage 5 Cisco 2960 switches.
Each switch was pretty much unwrapped from box and installed, no configurations made. Each has the default VLAN 1. Each switch is connected to one another as well.
I've attached a basic pic showing how they are all connected.
After doing some research, the application is stating the switches each need to have their own IP in order to be remotely managed over the CDP protocol.
My question is - how do I set up each switch with an IP address so that it can be managed by the Network Assistant PC? I tried to assign an IP to VLAN1 on one of the switches, but was unable to ping it after doing so.
Each VLAN is hosting the same subnet of 192.168.16.0/24 so there is no routing needed.
You said you are a newbie. I am going to give you a command by command. This should allow you to cull off anything that you already know. Some of these things I do here are for later on, but start with good habits.
Connect up your blue (rollout) cable to switch 1. I am going to assume these are 2960-24TT's. I will also setup a connection between the switches. All switches connect to switch three, rather than daisy chain.
sw5(config-int)#description "Uplink to switch 3 fa 0/2"
On your client machine set the IP to 192.168.16.10 255.255.255.0. Connect your client machine to fa 0/6 on switch 3. You could use any switch port, but this one has the spanning-tree portfast, so it will work faster.
From your machine, bring up a command prompt and see if you can ping 192.168.16.1 - 5. If so, open your Cisco Network Assistant and go to connect. It should work.
I was plugged into the switch VIA ethernet and had my laptop configured with a static IP. I was unable to ping 192.168.16.1. Is that because I did not complete all the commands you have listed below? I will try what you provided tomorrow when I get back into the office.
Also - these switches are live so these changes I am making will not affect anything connected, correct?
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
