Migration from HP 4204vl to Hp(H3C) 7506 switch / Chnage the Core switch to the New Switch.

Hi Guys,

I need some Tips for Chnaging the Main Core switch (Hp 4204 vl) to new H3c Switch/ HP 7506 series. I am new to this Kind of projects and wants to have some Experts Advices.

so basically we are having 8 VLAN over the switch and then trunk lines to firewall for Routing from the Main switch.

I have created all the VLan to the new switch and can also get the uUp links to the firewall.

but just wants to discuss before i start to mess up the things.

can someone please make some comments or suggestion about it.#

Sincerlly Thanks

Hello,

does your switch have layer 3 configuration (routing?) or does it have only basic config? Can you have your 2 switches connected at the same time (to the firewall). Basically, the first test is to connect a test machine on the new switch, on each vlan, and verify that it can communicate. But it greatly depends on your firewall policy, if it's complex it can be a burden. Is your business 24/7? If no, plan it at night, or in a week-end. Do you have test servers that you can migrate in a first step?

Regards,

Alexis.

Hello,

Thanks for your Reply. My Old Switch has only trk port and just basic routing for the Managment access to the switch.

Like this:

 

SW-1> show ip route

                                IP Route Entries

  Destination        Gateway         VLAN Type      Sub-Type   Metric     Dist
  ------------------ --------------- ---- --------- ---------- ---------- ----
  0.0.0.0/0          10.54.5.10      6    static               0          250
  10.54.5.0/24       MANAGEMENT      6    connected            0          0
  127.0.0.0/8        reject               static               0          250
  127.0.0.1/32       lo0                  connected            0          0

 

and then Rest of the Routing is Just happening over the Firewall. I have basically Static routing between VLAN's.

Yes! i can give a try to connect the both Switch to firewall So basically i can the second switch also to firewall with Vlan COnfiguration and then connect any test server to the New switch and check the Policy.

I will really appriciate your Views.

 

thanks
