I am new to setting up a full network, so I am setting up a testing lab in my home. What I have running is the following:
- Two servers that both run vmware esxi where I have server 2012 r2 installed on both.
- I have 2 switches one is a xtreme summit x250e and the other is a dell powerconnect 5424. It is just two switches I had laying around.
Now, I am trying to get both severs connected to my domain and be able to talk to each other on different subnets.
So, I have one server on
192.168.20.1/24, and the other is on
192.168.30.1/24. The xtreme switch one has 2 vlans, the default with all ports untagged, and another vlan for my dhcp ports from the server. This seems to work fine as it is, assigning IP addresses to the clients just fine using
The other server and dell switch are on
192.168.30.1/24. I just cant seem to get the two to communicate with each other. I know I need to connect the switches together and that is where I am stuck.
So this is how I have it setup now
I start with my modem that is connected to my pfsense firewall with a lan IP of 192.168.20.1 From my pfsense firewall I am going into the xtreme switch with a default gateway of 192.168.20.2 this is then connected to the server 2012 r2 running dchp and this is working
I then have another server 2012 r2 that is connected to the Dell switch with default gateway 192.168.30.2 I need to get this added to the domain and talk to the first server
If any could help me out it would be greatly appreciated.
Here is a diagram with what I am trying to do again I am new to setting anything like this up before so Please tell me if I am all wrong with the setup as I am trying to learn how to do this Dont mind my diagram I did it in paint
