This week we managed to get the Raspberry Pi data center connected to the network. Well, sort of. Getting the data center connected required a configuration change on the data center switch. We go over our change ticket, the planning process, gathering information and implementation. There were a lot of steps in this process.


  1. Ports on the Data center switch, SW2, have been configured for access mode and vlan 51
  2. The Raspberry Pi data center is connected to SW2
  3. Dorothy’s workstation is also connected to SW2
  4. Next Step: Configuring the network settings for each Raspberry Pi
    1. Add the IP address and subnetmask
    2. Add the default gateway
    3. Add the DNS server
    4. Test
