I have a Juniper EX4300 switch that is connected to a firewall which in turn connects to the WAN. I have an Aruba 7010 Controller that I would like to connect to the Juniper switch. On the Juniper switch I have 4 VLANS that each correspond to a single subnet in the following format:
- VLAN Name - VLAN ID - IP RANGE
- UserLAN - 1 - 18.104.22.168/22
- Guest - 2 - 22.214.171.124/22
- UserWiFi - 3 - 126.96.36.199/22
- DevLAN - 4 - 188.8.131.52/22
I have connected the Aruba Controller to port ge-0/0/10 on the Juniper switch and configured that port as a trunk port with the native VLAN being UserLAN and the member VLANs as the rest of the VLANs. Juniper port ge-0/0/0 is also configured as a trunk port on the UserLAN VLAN and connects to my firewall that has an IP of 184.108.40.206/22. I can ping public addresses such as 220.127.116.11 from all devices and I have inter-VLAN communication working but I just wanted to ask if this is the correct way to configure these devices? I also wanted to know if this configuration can support using the same VLANs across the Juniper and Aruba devices. From the Aruba documentation they say you must create the same VLANs with the same name and IDs on both devices, but I cannot remove VLAN ID 1 on the Aruba device. Any thoughts?
