I am working at a school campus that has 3 programs on it and has a lot of politicking involved with network administration. I am in charge of the network administration for our program along with managing our domain.
Each program has its own VLAN keeping it separate from the other programs and then we have been given 4 subnets for our program: 192.168.216.0/24, 192.168.217.0/24, 192.168.218.0/24, 192.168.219.0/24
The other programs and equipment are all have 192.168.x.0/24 subnets
My question, since we do not need want separate subnets, if I convince the campus network administrator to switch us to 1 subnet 192.168.216.0/22, will this cause problems for the other subnets on the network? And, will a setup like this work?
In my mind this is the easiest way to deal with getting a larger subnet. I have tried to convince the campus to switch to a 10.0.0.0 range but seemed like an alternative since they will not listen.
