It won't work if you have a vlan accross some equipements, with no IP adress. Like you provide a layer 2 connectivity between 2 customers equipements, passing through your switchs.

or if you have a router with some IP adresses on vlans interfaces, then a trunk to a switch on which you connect customers, the switch as no IP adress in the vlans he carry

I use the visible label also for this.

Hi there,

first off I would like to give a big up to all developers of racktables. It really saves us a lot of work.

We are kind of new to Racktables and currently transferring all information into racktables. There is one point that’s especially interesting to me. Where do you store your VLAN configuration of your Switch Ports. At the moment we abuse the „Visible Label“ Field for that. E.g. we tag it like “01 (VLAN1 U, VLAN2 T, VLAN3 T, VLAN4 T, VLAN 100T)“ . How do you store this information? Is a more complex VLAN solution planned?
