I have a large block of ip addresses 255.255.248.0 on a lan. I am going to have one so called core switch (4506) and some 4503 on different floors home run to this core 4506 switch. currently DNS, DHCP are outside of this network. The 4506 core switch has 2 WS-X4306 (6 port GBIC modules). I want each GBIC to be on its own vlan.
Question is what ip address am i suppose to assign the vlans? All hosts get random DHCP addresses already assigned and I am not able to separate all the hosts per floor to a different vlan. I can only assign each floor (a 4503) to a different vlan.
Does this make sense?
