Adding a switch to a VLAN'd network.
It's a brocade switch on a Cisco network with two Cisco 45xx series switches at the Core. I know all the VLAN information, gateways etc. but how do you configure the new switch to work in the existing environment? I know how to program the switch via the console and have set the IP number and other information, but I don't understand how you get certain ports on certain VLANS and sucessfully uplink this to the rest of the network. I can add ports as tagged and untagged to VLANS within the switch, this is easy, but how do I tell it to uplink this to the rest of the system via a specific port, and how does it know where to send its traffic?
Any advice welcome as although I understand the principles behind VLAN's, I've never set them up and not really worked with them properly before. I'd like to save calling in an engineer to do this as I'm sure it can't be THAT hard really?
