I'm trying to work out the best way to dynamically assign a port based access vlans to equipment connected to a single Catalyst 9300 stack ideally without setting up 802.1x Port-Based Authentication. The end points and bits of field equipment that regularly get shifted around and are not pc's and use statically assigned IP addresses. I could also achieve the same thing using MAC addresses too if that would be easier. I've thoroughly read through the documentation relating to Vlans, Private vlans and VTP but i suspect there is a different more creative way to do this that i haven't realise yet.
Any help appreciated.
thanks for the answer, and that makes sense, unfortunately it would be quite a tricky system to maintain in this environment that i'm deploying this in. It seems odd to me that this is something that is quite trivial to achieve with with a SG350 series switch but seemingly impossible with the a catalyst 9300, although, of course very different market segments and requirements i guess.
Ah great, thanks. I think the best way forward for me is going to be to try write a Auto Smartport user-defined macro and use a OUI range as a an event trigger for it (as all the equipment i am trying to Vlan is all from 1 manufacturer). I'm pretty sure that should do what i need, i just need to try figure out how to write the macro....
