Lan Extension: VLAN or Single Subnet HELP>>
I urgently need you guidance with this.>>> !
We currently run two servers, therefore domains split by a VLAN (two different subnets) for our Admin & Curriculum networks on one site.
A Lan Extension is about to be installed, to connect a new site 1.5km away. Virgin Media\Synetrix are doing the installation and
have now said the VLAN will not be re-created as there will only be 1xRJ45 port either end. This is against what they originally said, hence why we went the lan extension route. :mad:
They now suggest either getting someone to configurer a VLAN with segmented switches either end or going to a single subnet.
We are very unhappy, as we were lead to believe, the VLAN would be re-created as part of the install and that we would just be able to
plug back in our equipment and have the two sites connected and running as before!!
Can a knowledgeable person comment on any negatives in going to a single subnets, the enormity of the task and is this a better or worse option over getting
the VLAN re-configured.??
Time is not our friend on this!! :(
Any other comments greatly appreciated.
many many thanks in advance.
