All I am trying to figure out is if I have say 6 HP Procurve switches. Say my core switch is setup with Default_VLAN 192.168.1.1 , VLAN 2 192.168.2.1, VLAN 3 192.168.3.1. Now I want to configure my other Procurve switches to work with the existing core swtich VLANS. I know the ip address for the Default_VLAN must be unique (192.168.1.2). Now for VLAN 2 is the IP address 192.168.2.1 which is exactly the same as my core switch or do I have to have a unique IP (192.168.2.2)? I would say normally that each switch per VLAN should have a unique IP address, but how would that work with DHCP? Handing out DHCP I give all the computers the same default gateway, so it would not know how to route properly unless I had each IP address for each VLAN on each swtich exactly the same?
Any and all help will be greatly appreciated...
