There are many things about that. I thing that you could try to locate
port-socket based map from vendor's management software. Then, to create
supervisor VLAN on the core switch. Both this VLAN must be  responsible
for central management of the network and members of vlans IPs must be
routed to all vlan network. So you will able be surf on other VLANS.

Add to this VLANS... How can you map VLANs that are on the network, especially if your access is but on one VLAN, and 
that VLAN is different than the switch management VLAN?

Thoughts, tools, tricks, white papers, etc. appreciated.
