  • Forum Thread: Best practise to realise management ports on iscsi/san switches

    Hello, currently we have a management VM in our SAN, just to get to the management IPs of our SAN switches. I want to change that and remove all hosts from the SAN network. My idea was to setup a management vlan, put one port on the iscsi switch in that vlan and configure the management ip and vlan...

  • Forum Reply: RE: Configuring Inter Vlan Routing to Access PowerConnect 2724 Web Management Interface

    Hi Josh, Thank you for your help, but do you think I would be able to use a standalone DD-WRT router to achieve inter vlan routing? Is there a way to connect a route from a physical port on vlan-8 to a DD-WRT router then to a physical port on vlan-1 without creating a broadcast loop or storm?

  • Forum Thread: SNMP Uptime Counter incorrect

    Hello, I've recently setup a monitoring system that, among other things, alerts me when the uptime of any switch on our network is less than an hour. I've done this as a way to alert when a switch unexpectedly reboots. I got an alert from a bunch of my routers today that the uptime counter...

    Currently experiencing the same issue on a PowerConnect 7024. There doesn't seem to be a viable solution to restrict management access to the device's IPv6 addresses without creating an IPv6 ACL including all possible IPv6 address entry points and applying that to all interfaces, an un-wieldy...

    I had previously tried out the PowerConnect 27XX switches (primarily the 2708), and, while it functioned okay, it had one very, very frustrating feature: the management IP address was always assigned to VLAN 1 - there was no way to change this. I'm wondering if anyone who has the 28XX series (2708...

  • Forum Reply: Re: Powerconnect 62xx and using sFLOW

    The links are correct, you need the switch report egress port information in the sFlow records if you want sFlow analyzers to be able to report on outbound traffic. This would require a firmware upgrade on the switch - you should ask Dell and see what their plans are - Dell/Force10 switches report egress...
