I have been tasked with assigning a static IP to a network enabled security device.
I know we have a vendor VLAN it will be using. I know the IP address, Gateway, and Subnet mask I need to give the device. I know the mac address of the device itself.
There is no interface on this device that I can access as it is a proprietary connection.
I will soon be figuring out which switch port this device is plugged into so I can give the port access to the correct VLAN.
I am not sure how to assign/reserve the IP address for the device though. Any help would be appreciated!
Login into the Box Using Console/Serial Cable
Type Following COmmands
1. Conf t
2. int Vlan x
( x is the vlan Number )
3. Ip address y.y.y.y z.z.z.z
( y.y.y.y --> Ip Address and z.z.z.z --> Subnet Mask )
You Vlan has an Ip Address, however you have to assign the port to vlan .
Which Device is this, I mean type of router or switch ?
Thank you for the quick response!
It is a Cisco 6500 core switch and the endpoint is a 3560.
The VLAN should be all set up as multiple other devices use it from other vendors. I just need to make sure the port I plug it in has the correct VLAN assigned. However, once I make sure that port only has access to the correct VLAN, how do I make sure the device gets assigned the static IP/subnet/etc?
Then you asked in wrong community. Neither 6500 nor 3560 is product of Small Business product line.
This thread will be moved to more appropriate forum.
