We are trying to implement Windows 2000 Network Load Balancing, however one of it's requirements states that all hosts that participate must be on the same subnet. MS also requires that these PC must be on a layer 2 switch. Their IPs are x.x.2.10 and x.x.1.10 They are on 2 different cards on the Catalyst 4000 switch. At first glance the answer is no, they are not on the same subnet, but I'm not too sure. Also is possible to create a VLAN using 2 ports on different cards on the switch? Is it possible to put those 2 PCs in the same VLAN without moving one of them to a different port and without changing IP addresses? Big thanks in advance.
It is possible to have ports on different cards (or on different switches, for all it could matter) belong to a common VLAN. Additionally to belong to the same subnet (should this not be the case at the moment) with the addressing you gave in the post, you need to make sure the netmask is such as those 2 address belong to same network. for example 255.255.0.0 (or if that is too big, you might try 255.255.252.0, which is btw the least you can use to achieve your purpose).
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
