We have a similar setup. We also have a 4507 with Norton Ghost. In this article on Ghost (Part 1-How Ghost starts the session)(http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/ghost.nsf/docid/1999033015222425), it saids that ghost client uses broadcast initially to contact the Ghost Server. Since it uses broadcast, the broadcast arent going to traverse VLANs. Thats the point of VLANs is to minimize broadcasts. So in other words, lets say a client on VLAN1 broacasts to communicate with the ghost server. Well, if the ghost server is on VLAN1, then it will work of cource because the server will see the broadcast. If the ghost server is on a different VLAN, then its not going to see the broadcast.
How we get around this is that we have a special NIC on our Ghost Server that allows the ghost server to access more than one VLAN at a time. In other words, the NIC enables trunking from your computer to the switch. So you enable trunking on your switch port for whichever vlans you want the ghost server to access. Then on the ghost server NIC, you set up the NIC to use those same VLANS. Now, the ghost serve will be able to communicate with any computer (ie ghost client) on those VLANS set on the NIC and switch port. The type of NIC that we have is a INTEL PROSet. There are other NICs out there though that have this VLAN capability.
I don't know a whole lot about the monitoring port but correct me if I'm wrong, if you were to do that, you would have to monitor every other source port other than the port going to the Norton Ghost Server. That way any other client's data would be sent (copied) to the monitoring port (port connected to the Ghost Server). Wouldn't this then direct a lot of unwanted traffic at the Ghost Server?
We have 3 identical switches configured by someone else and would like to claim some of the Gigabit ports(G1/G2/G3/G4) for use on servers. When we try to change the wiring and configuration, we run in to connectivity issues. Attached is a des...
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
