Cisco Switches :: SG500X 10Gb Copper To Server Hardware

Feb 7, 2013

We have a site with a number of SG500X switches who are about to have a new server installed.
The server is a Dell ESXi host with a dual port 10Gb NIC supporting SFP+.
I know the primary purpose of the 10Gb ports on the SG500X is for stacking etc. but the switch does come with four 10Gb ports.
Why I wouldn't be able to utilize a 10Gb port as a copper connection to the 10Gb NIC on the server? Anyone out there with a SG500X connected directly to a server at 10Gb?

Cisco Switches :: SG500X-58 - Native Stacking Mode?

Mar 15, 2013

The switch SG500X-48 has 4 SFP+ ( 10G ) ports - XG1, XG2, XG3/S1, XG4/S2 - and two configuration modes - standalone and "native stacking".
Can I use XG1 and XG2 SFP+ ports to connect servers when "Native stacking" mode is active ?

Cisco Switches :: Virtual NIC On VOIP System And SG500X?

Aug 27, 2012

We have a VOIP system with 1 physical NIC attached to our SG500X. It has a virtual MAC address along with the physical MAC address. It has 2 IP addresses tied to it.
I can ping the physical IP address, but can only ping the virtual address from the same vlan as the virtual nic. However, if I clear the arp table, a few pings will go through until they all time out again. This is causing problems on my phone system, and I need to establish this communication. I have tried putting in static MAC and ARP entries, but that does not work.

Cisco Switches :: SG500x How Many 10GE Ports Can Be Used For Uplink

Apr 25, 2013

i was checking the datasheet of 500X series and got confused regarding the 10GE uplinks. how many 10GE ports can be used for uplink and which transceiver should be used for 10GE copper uplink? for example, SG500x-24 switch has 24GE ports and 4x10GE uplinks. can i use the 4x10GE ports for uplinks or only 2 ports are for uplink and the rest for stacking?

Cisco Switches :: SG500X XG Ports Show Unknown Speed

We have 2 SG500X switches configured this way and both are reporting the same Uknown speed.

Cisco Switches :: SG500X-24 Stacking - Keeping Connections Active

May 12, 2013

I am installing a network that has two SG500X-24 switches as core and several SG300-52 switches as access switches. I've seen in the SG500X-24 datasheet that there is a True Stacking feature. But in the data sheet there are not a lot of details about it. My doubt is the following. If I configure the two SG500X-24 switches as a single switch through stacking them, can I connect one SG300-52 switch to these two SG500X-24 switches through two cables (both configured as a LAG in the SG300-52 and in the SG500X-24 stack, one cable per SG500X-24), the  the first cable connected to the first SG500X-24 switch and the second cable connected to the second SG500X-24 switch and keep both connections active?

Cisco Switches :: SFP-H10GB-CU1M SFP+ Copper Cable Module Speed Shows As Unknown

Jul 17, 2012

I have connected 2 SG500x switches using an SFP-H10GB-CU1M SFP+ Copper Cable module.  Since the port shows as a 10G port, I would expect the speed to show as 10G as well.  However, it shows as "Unknown".  This doesn't leave me with confidence that it is being recognized properly.  The link is working properly, but I haven't run tests to verify if I'm getting full 10G throughput or not.  Shouldn't it show 10G as the link speed?

Cisco WAN :: X2-10GB-LR Having 10GB Uplink Between Two Buildings

Oct 20, 2011

My manager ordered some Cisco X2-10GB-LR in hopes of having a 10GB uplink between two buildings. We put those modules on the switch and we are getting link flap errors, then the ports goes into err-disabled state.
I was later told there is a couple of "hops" between the buildings, it could be a patch panel or a fiber switch, I do not know at this point. My guess is, we are getting link flap because the "hops" are only running at 1GB. Would this be a typical sympton of the link flap error message? and is there any way to test if there is switches inbetween our routers?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3560 - Switches Capable Of 10GB Port Density

Feb 5, 2013

I have 3560's in my current environment, operating in the core/distro/access layers. The switches are in a star configuration, performs only layer 2 switching, and utilizes copper (no plans on moving to fiber).
With a fairly limited budget, I've been contemplating on upgrading the central node to a stacked 3750X to eliminate that single point of failure, and trunk the rest of the 3560's to the stacked switch. I wanted to be sure that the 3750X switches will be right for my environment (90-100 hosts), and if what I explained above is a good solution.
I'm also looking like to upgrade 6-7 of my servers (and SAN) with 10GB network cards. Do the ports on the 3750X have port densities capable of 10GB? If not, what switches provide that capability?

Cisco Switches :: SG500x Point To Point Connection Very Slow After 1.30.59 Update

May 1, 2013

I have a point to point 100mb line connecting SG500x switches at 2 locations, with these ports in a vlan together. I use layer 3 on the SG500x's to route between the two sites. I also have RIP protocol enabled to allow for automatic failover if the point to point fails (this works well).
I upgraded the ios to 1.30.59, and the connection now runs at a fraction of the speed. I have hard-coded the ports to run at 100mb full duplex, but I still only get around 12mb of throughput between the switches. I used to get about 90mb before. The provider also hard-coded the circuit to 100mb full duplex. The provider has checked the circuit remotely, and everything looks fine. I tested with a laptop at each side, and did get almost 70mb throughput. I would think this indicates some type of setting mismatch, but i cannot find anything.
I am using a backup vpn for now as some things look flaky as well (on vpn, I can use the web interface to access the SG500x on the opposite side, but on the point to point I cannot - I can ping the device though).
I have seen some references on here to shutting off STP on these 2 ports.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750X And 10 Gb Copper Connection

Sep 3, 2012

We need to deploy a 3750X switch with 10 Gb module. The pb is what SFP to choose ? The 10 Gb ports will be attached to an ethernet 10 Gb RJ-45 Server port. The 10 Gb connection has to be copper (not fiber). Is this reference ok : SFP-H10GB-CU3M= (version 2) ?  I mean is it a copper cable with an attached SFP.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: CGS-2520-16S-8PC - Not Applying POE Power To Copper Ports

I'm running cgs2520-lanbasek9-mz.122-58.EY2 after using 122-58-se1. Happening on both, but i have more switches running EY2 with no issues at the moment. Using DC power supply averaging around 53v.

Cisco Wireless :: 1242AG - Extend Network That Cannot Be Reached By Copper Or Fiber?

Nov 18, 2012

I have two Aironet 1242AG access points.  Currently, one of those access points is in use with an SSID of ABCWIFI.
I want to extend the wireless network to an area that can't be reached by copper or fiber.  So, I've purchased another 1242AG.  What I'm not sure of is how to configure it.  Should I use it as a repeater or in a root-bridge/non-root bridge configuration?
What I'm most confused about is, what do I do with the second radio?  Do I use the 5Ghz as the "backhaul" with a completely separate SSID and then broadcast the normal SSID over the 2.4Ghz?  Or, do I even use the second radio at all?  The key is that the same SSID is used in all locations because the devices in use need to move seemlessly between access points
