I have bought a managed switch for my homelab ProCurve 2810-24g and am trying to setup pfsense (virtualized on my R710). So far here is what I have done.
On the procurve I have created a vlan called vlan100 with the IP address 10.15.15.200 from port 1-6. The default vlan IP is 192.168.1.3.
My question is do I need to assign an IP address for the vlan on the switch? If I do so how does my configuration change in pfsense? Since this the vlan that my "lan" resides on in esx can I have pfsense assign DHCP addresses from 10.15.15.205/24 (201 is my pfsense we management, 203 vsphere management IP).
Why would you need a IP on your switch for every vlan? Unless its L3 and you want to route on our switch? Or you need a IP in that vlan on the switch to troubleshoot with.
