Overlapping subnets

You can use the set allow-subnet-inteface command to allow two interfaces to include the same IP address in the same subnet. The command applies only between the mgmt interface and an internal interface.

NOTE: Different interfaces cannot have overlapping IP addresses or subnets. The same IP address can be used on different switches.

For example:

config system global

set admintimeout 480

set allow-subnet-overlap enable

set auto-isl enable

end

config system interface

edit "mgmt"

set ip 172.16.86.112 255.255.255.0

set allowaccess ping https http ssh snmp telnet

set type physical

set alias "test"

set snmp-index 27

next

edit "internal"

set ip 10.0.1.112 255.255.255.0

set allowaccess ping

set type physical

set alias "testing-2"

set snmp-index 26

next

end
