CCIE Security lab: Switching

It is time to set up the core network.  Nothing new here really, a bit of HSRP and a few niceties (like disabling timeout on the console). The switches need to be given a hostname (obviously), and then we have some basics to do on all of them, and then the HSRP, which will be on SW1 and SW2.
On all switches we create the VLANs, turn off the time out on the console, and set the inter-switch ports to be dot1q trunks:

vlan 4
name Management
vlan 7
name DMZ
vlan 9
name Phones
vlan 20
name Users-1
vlan 21
name Users-2
vlan 55
name Failover
vlan 99
name Data-Phone
exit
line con 0
exec-t 0 0
exit
int ra gi0/1 - 3
swi tru enc dot
swi mo tru
no shu
exit

The next part is to set up the VLAN interfaces and HSRP. I have decided to use .254 as the final octet for the HSRP IPs, as it means I can use the switch numbers (.1 and .2) on the respective switches.

Looks good now. We have an internal network and can start playing with the really cool toys, like the ISE and WSA, but not before we setup the firewalls for HA and NAT

I am waiting on my (newish) 3750X to be delivered today, its the PoE version, so it’ll handle the phone and the Wifi parts of the lab.
