SERVER PROBLEM

By pradeepmenen ·
We have 2 Novell Servers in our ofice at 2 departments with 10 clients each.Connection to the Servers by the clients are by hubs. Hubs are not connected to each other.Recently our office has completed Structured cabling .Consequently the clients are connected to the Servers by means of workgroup switches and these workgroup switches are connected to Layer 3 Switches (Core Switches) which in turn has connectivity to our various other branches of our company though VSAT.The problem is that when a client of a partiular Novell Server tries to connect to his department's Server he finds that he is connected to the other department server. I am given to understand that this problem can be resolved by configuring VLANS but HOW DO I GO ABOUT IT.

depends on the type of switch.

If you are using Cisco, do not use Vlan 1, this is the admin vlan. Also, you can set the preferred server in the client. When you do set the IP address of the server in the properties along with everything else.
Doing this will probably mean not having to configure vlans.

Before setting up vlans, ensure that you are implementing them for the correct reasons. VLANs are used for security and to break up broadcast domains. Vlans can also be used when you setup streaming media sessions or voice over IP for QOS issues.

VLANs are a Network segmenting technique and has nothing to do with NetWare. Do like the man said and set the preferred server in the Novell client. If using the IP address doesn't work (and it won't if your server is pre-version 5) use the servername.
