This "It's ready when it's ready" approach is something that shouldn't be part of your PR if you are an enterprise company. If so, then your management is seriously lacking.

Re: VLAN on switch1 on CCR

How is the switch configured? By default it passes all VLANs but this can be restricted. If you want that, you need to add the specific VLAN as well.

Did you set the parent port of ether2 to be ether1 If so, you put the VLAN on ether1. If not, ether2 is just a standalone port as far as the config is concerned and you put the VLAN on ether2.

Have you looked at the rb850? Inexpensive, fast, hardware AES. It doesn't have the SFP but it sounds like that isn't a must.
Yes I have seen this one but for me there isn't enough ethernet ports and this time I'd rather go with some of the rack mounted and more powerful ones :)
