Moving some connections to the New PA

 

We have this setup for one site 

 

------Dis sw--------------Edge switch stack of 3 ----------40 users 

 

we need to move few users behind the PA  .

 

what can be best design for this as we only need to have 5 to 10 users behind the PA  850.?

 

Should we connect small switch to the existing stack of switch ?

Hello,

How about a vlan and/or a subnet that routes via the PAN?

 

I'm sure there are many different options. I would also love to hear what the community has to say.

@MP18 ,

A dedicated VLAN that routes through the PA would be what I would do, as it doesn't require any additional hardware and should be easy to maintain and update. It also doesn't require that you have someone on-site to migrate connections over to the new switch, you simply update the port configuration and assign it to the new VLAN.

can we put this PA in vwire mode between the switches?

 

curently edge switch has 2 upliks that go to dis switch.

 

for the vwire to work it work in pairs

can i work with single connection for send and receive traffic?

Hello,

Can you provide a basic diagram? Somthing like:

 

switch-->router-->PAN

 

Please advise,

@MP18,

If you only have a single connection to use on the PA you would be looking at doing a network TAP, which has limited capabilities, so I would really recommend the vwire setup if you want to do that.

But for Vwire I will need to set of cables right  but in current setup it is not possible right?
