Hi,

Question about Cisco Vlans..

Current config :
8 switches connected to a core switch. All portes are in VLAN 10 and it's the management VLAN. This VLAN is reserved ONLY for switches management.

What I want :
Instead of having all my switches simply connected through VLAN 10 to my core switch, I want to create trunks. But as soon as I switch my ports from Access mode to Trunk mode, there is no more port in the Management VLAN 10 so the VLAN shutdown and I can't ssh my switch anymore....

Is there a way to keep this vlan up without ports assigned to ? Because this vlan is reserved only for switches management and my host connecting to them is connected on the core, I don't need ports assigned to this vlan on every switch...

Thanks !

use Loopback interfaces for management.
CCNA / CCNP / CCNA - Security / CCIP / Prince2 / Checkpoint CCSA

thanks I didn't know that.

Now I see I can set an IP to a loopback interface.

But is there a way to set a vlan to this loopback interface ? Because all my telnet/ssh management is done in a particular vlan.

working on 2960 series
