I am wondering how best to design a "part Meraki part VMware virtual lab" using the following equipment to help me study for the CCIE Security v5 lab.
I can create the many VLANS / subnets that I will need on the MX67 to be the default gateway.
A trunk port on the Meraki switch that passes ALL VLANS to the vSwitch on the ESXi host.
Spin up a CSR 1000v router with one interface pointed to the physical network and the other interface pointed inwards to the LAB environment.
Thank you to the readers if you have read this far.
What do you think?
Any suggestions? Improvements? Just think I'm crazy?
I would just create all the layer 3 interfaces on the MX and not bother creating them on the CSR, but both of your options will work fine.
