    Anyone else up this early studying for exams?? I guess the fact that I have a cold helps with being up early since its uncomfortable to lay in bed with a stuffy nose and a cough! :x

    Heh if I did that after getting up at 4:30am I'd probably accidently delete all his vlans. In fact I'm not even sure that time exists... ;).

    Customer is looking to test something... don't ask me what they want to test... They don't give me that information... just wanted me to set it up.

    I run VTP and why not?, unless you accidentally delete vlans it's fine :). That said if I get my network re-design proposal through I am going to drop it. No point in using it for small vlan numbers over small switch blocks. I do like it though.

    I make it a point to steer as far away from VTP as possible, it's just a time bomb in a network. Still keeps network engineers in work fixing problems caused by VTP.

    All you need are hubs and static routes :-)

    Everything has its' place, even static routes and dare I say it... hubs as well (where you can't use port mirroring for wireshark goodness for example).

    Don't you mean "where you don't need port mirroring for wireshark goodness for example"? :)

    No i think he means what he said....if you can't use port-mirroring (i.e. if you just have a dumb switch) you could put in a hub which will allow you to monitor all the traffic.

    Yep, that would explain it, must've gotten lost in translation :)

    VTP (or the more standards based GVRP/MVRP) is a must in large environments, I couldn't imagine life without it
    most of my vSphere hosts alone have 6+ vlans trunked to them from different switches
