I'm currently working on a design and am looking for some opinions born of recent experience, whether good or bad.
What are your thoughts about connecting management gear to the core vs a "management" vrf?
In my last deployment/buildout a few years ago, there were several issues with use of mgmt vrfs such as no support for tacacs servers in the vrf. And snmp, if I recall correctly, was broken. Booting/upgrading code from rommon was not possible via vrf'd interface.
I understand that snmp is now vrf aware, but from your experience, how real are these other concerns? Are there other issues with one approach versus the other?
