Switch: Dell PowerConnect 5548
DHCP is being handled by Windows 2012 R2
If it's relevant the router is a Sonicwall NSA 2600
Our network is currently
If I were to just create a VLAN on the switch it would change the 3rd octet
ex: command VLAN 10 would make
But I want to make our network have multiple ranges for various VLANs.
10.1.x for the switch and router and proxy,
10.2.x for everything else. (
10.2.2.x for servers,
10.2.3.x for printers, etc.) .
This is a small company so these changes are definitely possible, just a matter of when I implement them. Or in the case of this question, how.
Can I do this with the PowerConnect 5548 with the network's CIDR set to
/24 or do I need to switch to
/16 to change the second octet when I create a VLAN?
