Cisco 2911 used as console server

Chris Callison

Level 1

I have a console server that I need to deploy in a remote cage that is only accessible by a long-reach SM fiber connection.

 

I have a CIsco 2911 with a 16-port card for console connections, a 4-port switchport card for local connections and a SFP interface to house the SFP.

 

I would like to have the switchport and the routed SFP to be in the same VLAN.  I tried to use a BVI between the routed interface and the VLAN interface used for the switched ports, but it doesn't seem to work.

 

Am I overthinking this?

 

interface GigabitEthernet0/1/0
description CHG-GW-01 Gig 1/1/4
no ip address
media-type sfp
bridge-group 1
!
interface Vlan9
no ip address
bridge-group 1

 

interface BVI1
ip address 10.9.140.251 255.255.0.0

 

bridge 1 protocol ieee
bridge 1 route ip

I have switches that need to be connected through Ethernet to the same out-of-band VLAN as the other cage.

I found a few other sample configurations and it looks it will work if I convert the gi0/1 interface to a tagged sub-interface.

you can configure as trunk and allow what ever vlan you requires. or l3 port-channel, depends on requirement and what suitable for you.

If I use the sub-interface on the gi0/1/0 interface and set the vlan on the switchports, do I need the bridge, or will that just work because of the tagging?

If I am understanding the situation correctly then you do not need the bridge. The sub interfaces with tagging will work.
