Moving from a Switched to a Routed Environment

Hello -

Can anyone suggest a phased approach whereby I can migrate our 'flat' class B network ( we currently have a layer2 switched environment ) to a subnetted Class B with VLANs( i.e. using a layer 3 blade in our enterprise switch ).

We have an NT based network so this would really help in breaking up our single broadcast domain and allow us to allocate subnet addresses to our remote office networks.

Any help appreciated.



Re: Moving from a Switched to a Routed Environment

1. identify all your servers, These are ideal candidates for your first subnet.

2. How many clients ? where are they ? If its a highrise, the simplest would be 1 floor = 1 subnet = 1 vlan.

Re: Moving from a Switched to a Routed Environment

Hello Vincent -

First off, apologies for not replying sooner to your reply,

my original question may not have been specific enough.

Ideally what I want to do is create new subnets in parallel with the existing flat network structure we have and move machines into each subnet/vlan in a phased approach until I can decommission the existing structure.

Is this possible ? Can you point me in the dire ction of any related technical document(s) ?

Any help appreciated,
