Dell 5524 - VLAN route

I have two VLANS set up on a Dell 5524 being used with vSphere 5.5.

VLAN1 has access to the DMZ we are using and has the ESXi Console and a few VMs (on vSwitch 0)

The static IPs being used in the VMs are all in the same network.

VLAN2 has the developer VMs and are on vSwitch1.

The developer need to RDP to their developer VMs, so I think I need to set up routing between the VLANS?

I am Using the OpenManage Switch GUI.  What screen under VLAN do I need to modify to have the VLANS route and allow the users to RDP into their VMs

thanks

RE: Dell 5524 - VLAN route

The 5524 has the option to enter static routes to an IP address that does not belong to the system are forwarded to a next-hop device. I don't believe it will dynamically route between VLANs though. You would need a router/ fully capable Layer 3 switch for the VLANs to communicate with each other.

You could try the following, it may work. Make sure each VLAN has an IP address assigned to it. Then from the CLI issue the command # ip routing. Then test for connectivity across VLANs.

I don't think the static routes will work for VLAN to VLAN communication. But static routes can be entered in the cli using the command:

# ip route prefix {mask | prefix-length} ip-address [metric distance] [rejectroute]

Example:

The following example configures a static route with prefix 172.16.0.0, prefix

length 16, and gateway 131.16.1.1.

Console(config)# ip route 172.16.0.0 /16 131.16.1.1

Also in the GUI under System>IP addressing>IPv4 static routes. Page 210 of the user guide.

RE: Dell 5524 - VLAN route

i will take a look,,  

When I created the VLANs I did not see an area to assign an IP.

Where in the OpenMange GUI do I see if a VLAN has an IP?

RE: Dell 5524 - VLAN route

System>IP addressing>IPv4 interfaces. That will show you the VLAN and IP address associated with the VLAN.

RE: Dell 5524 - VLAN route

ok,, i only see the Ip of the switch listed under IPv4 Interface Parameters. and it is VLAN1.

Do I need to add VLAN2 and give it an  IP?

On another note, I have a 6248 switch,,,what are the 4 ports labeled  SFP used for?

RE: Dell 5524 - VLAN route

Correct, VLAN 2 will need an IP address. The SFP ports are used for fiber cables. Here is a blog with some good information on SFP.

RE: Dell 5524 - VLAN route

ok,,,,thanks,,,i checked our 6248 and the SFP ports (xg1-xg4) do not have modules in them,,,

the reason I ask,, is I have to connect a Cisco 3560 to VLAN 10 on the 6248,,,

I have to set up the Cisco with 12 Ports in VLAN 10 and then connect it to one of the 6248 VLAN 10 ports,,,

RE: Dell 5524 - VLAN route

For that connection you can use access mode on both switches.

switch(config)# interface ethernet 1/1

switch(config-if)# switchport mode access

switch(config-if)# switchport access vlan 10

RE: Dell 5524 - VLAN route

What IP are you trying to assign to the VLAN? Is the IP in the same subnet as any other VLAN?
