I have to re-engineer a Meraki network that is running as a flat VLAN on VLAN 1. I want to introduce a number of VLANs so that I can allocate different users/devices to different VLANs to allow me to better secure the devices environment. Straight-forward so far. Now here's the catch: the available IP address space is very restricted, and my customer's ISP has said he can only give us a bunch of discontiguous /24 ranges.
If this was a standard Cisco switch, I would configure VLANs with SVIs that had secondary addresses....messy, but at least no server renumbering required, and I could use additional discontiguous subnets.
The Meraki switches (210/225s) don't allow the use of secondary addressing (do they?) so I can't use that solution even if I wanted to :). I could, of course, use several different VLANs each with its own subnet, which would work, but would be excessively messy and unmanageable.
I also have to consider that Meraki wireless APs are running on the LAN, so if I had a VLAN for upstairs and a VLAN for downstarirs, I would have to advertise different SSIDs connecting to different VLANs, thus destroying mobility
Has anyone successfully dealt with this kind of situation before? Or is it just me being blind to the obvious solution (that's quite likely!)
