I have two HP 2530 switches in our hosting center. Because of some VPN problems between our office and the HC, i need to change their management IP Addresses to a different IP network.
Currently they have a 192/24 address configured in a tagged VLAN, the new network will be in the 10/16 range.
- Can I assign an Address in the new network to the same tagged VLAN that already has a management IP?
- If not, can I create a temporary VLAN and assign a second Mgmt IP to that, concurrent with the first?
- The switches have Spanning Tree (specifically MSTP) configured, how will it likely react to having multiple IP adresses - if at all?
This is in productive use, so the switches must continue to pass traffic as normal, and they also need to be reachable during the whole operation. Anything I need to look out for to ensure that?
