Cisco Switching/Routing :: 2960G Configuring Ether-channel On Stack-wise Stack

Sep 24, 2012

A site that i am responsible for has the following equipment installed: 

2 x 3750G Switches configured as a stack using Stackwise - Collapsed Core/Distribution Layer
5 x 2960G Switches as Access Layer switches
WAN connections into the Core/Distribution Layer are all Gigabit Ethernet over Fibre.This is a dedicated CCTV Network with 50 Cameras all streaming video into the Core (decoders connected to access switches)Each 2960G has 2 links to the Core/Distribution 3750G Switches, 1 to each switch - Gigabit.I'm running rapid-pvst on all switches, so spanning tree is blocking one of the ports and effectively halving the 2 gig bandwidth. Next year our customer is going to add in a further 50 - 60 cameras.After monitoring the current loading on the ports in use, we have suggested to the customer that the 2 connections to each should be Ether-channeled together. [code]
First interface takes commands no problem, keep getting the message that etherchannel cannot be configured across different switches in a stack when i try to put the second interface commands on.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750 - Cross-stack Ether Channel 20Gb And STP

Feb 22, 2012

i want to realize a 20gb ring stp with 6  3750x stacked by 2. I want to install 2 3750x stacked configured in hsrp mode with other 2 3750 stacked. These 2 different stack are interconnected by a cross-stack ether channel 20Gb  fiber. On the other side of the room i want to create a new stack with 2 3750x with cross-stack ether channel 20gb connected with the previous 2 stacks. So, in total 3 different cross-stack ether channel 20Gb stacks interconnected creating a ring stp of 20 Gb.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750x Replacing 2nd Stack Wise Cable?

Nov 20, 2011

I have two 3750G switches stacked together however it's not in a full ring configuration:

Stack Ring Speed        : 16G
Stack Ring Configuration: Half
Stack Ring Protocol     : StackWise
And as shown below it's obvious which cable is not working:
show switch neighbors
Switch #    Port 1       Port 2
--------    ------       ------
1         2            None
2        None           1
It's not flapping - it's like the cable isn't there at all. I'm going to try reseating the cable in there and perhaps an all out replacement if necessary. My question - is there any threat of a reboot of the switch stack or of partitioning of the switch stack by trying to get the 2nd cable working?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750 Stack-wise Cable Long Enough To Connect Two Racks

May 8, 2012

We have two dedicated racks for our DMZ. We need to connect them to a firewall. We do all the cabling inside the rack, so each of them must have a top of rack.Problem is, switch in rack 2 will be connected to rack 1 and then to firewall, so if switch 1 fail, we lose both of them.
I would love to stack them like 3750 but I don't think there is stack-wise cable long enough to connect two racks (and I suppose this length isn't supported by technology).We have only one port left in the FW.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Stack 3750X - How To Configure Port Channel To Aggregate Two Links

Feb 18, 2013

I have two stacks 3750X on two different sites with two links L_2_L, and I want to configure the port channel to aggregate the two links.
Site A                                                                                                  Site B
3750X -A1 --------------------------------------(          )--------------------------------------- 3750X -B1
                                                      (  L-2-L )
3750X -A2 --------------------------------------(          )--------------------------------------- 3750X -B2

Below the configuration that I have put the two stacks.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Configuring EtherChannel Between 3750-X Cross-stack And 6509E Switch?

Mar 3, 2013

configuring EtherChannel between 3750-X cross-stack and 6509E switch. I use two ports on 3750s, and two ports on 6509. I just need it as a trunk. For some elusive reason one port on 3750 keeps being err-disabled, and one on 6509 notconnected.
Here is what I did so far.
interface GigabitEthernet1/0/22
description ***VSS-RNOC-link***
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport trunk allowed vlan 2

Problem with :

GigabitEthernet1/0/22 is down, line protocol is down (err-disabled)
GigabitEthernet2/1/29 is down, line protocol is down (notconnect)
I tried shutting them down, then no shutting them again. Didn't work.

Cisco Switching/Routing ::1002 Layer 3 Ether-channel Vs Two Separate Links

May 19, 2013

We were going to create a 2 port, layer 3 etherchannel between a 1002 router and a 3750X layer 3 core switch. We wanted to create bunled link between them but, now we are going to be putting a Riverbed device between the router and core switch. Because of this, would it be best to abandon the idea of creating a layer 3 etherchannel and just have 2 links from the router and core switch and have traffic load balance between the 2 links?The Riverbed will have 2 connections into it from the Core switch and 2 connections into it from the 1002 router. I was hoping to keep the layer 3 etherchannel but, do you think it would be best to create 2, /29 nets and have the router/Riverbed and Core Switch/Riverbed load balance.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 891W 10Gbs Multi-Chassis Ether Channel

Mar 15, 2011

I have an 891W that I initially configured using CCP Express (2.5).  So it has a WAN IP set, and through CCP Express I had enabled via the checkboxes the various default settings for security.  This includes zone-based firewall.  I then added a number of NAT entries in the setup wizard. 
What never occured to me at the time was that I should have added entries that allow for remote access.  So it seems I've locked myself out of accessing the router via the WAN interface even though I know it's IP.  I'm sure it's just a matter of adding port exceptions for SSH and/or whatever port(s) CCP uses. 
So I"m wondering what the proces woudl be.  In the IOS while showing the running config., I see pages and pages of class-map stuff which at present I don't know enough about to risk editing anything directly.  But maybe I don't have to?  What would be the best way to, for example, enable SSH access through the firewall?  I already have transport input ssh set on the interface itself so I believe it's ready to allow the connection, just that I can't get to it via WAN int. so I assume it's the firewall.

Cisco WAN :: Replacing A Stack Master In 3750 Stack?

Jan 22, 2013

We currently have as our stack master a 24 port Non-PoE that we want to replace with a 48 port Non-PoE. The 48 port switch at one time was provisioned as switch 3 in the stack (not the master). Correct me if I am wrong, but theoretically all I should need to do to get this working is to shut off the existing master so it re-elects a master and then provision the 48 port switch as the new switch one and make sure switch 1 has a high priority?
Do I need to write erase the switch that is replacing the current master first?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: QoS On 3750X Stack

May 7, 2013

I'm trying to review a QoS setup, and I'd like to make sure I fully understand the current setup before I change anything. I'm seeing output drops on two different queue-thresholds, but not sure how packets are making it to one of the queues.
Switch Version
CORE#show ver
Cisco IOS Software, C3750E Software (C3750E-UNIVERSALK9-M), Version 15.0(2)SE, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)
System image file is "flash:/c3750e-universalk9-mz.150-2.SE/c3750e-universalk9-mz.150-2.SE.bin"
cisco WS-C3750X-24 (PowerPC405) processor (revision A0) with 262144K bytes of memory.
Switch Ports Model              SW Version(code)

I can find queue4-threshold3 in the mappings, but how are packets getting mapped to queue2-threshold1? The priority queue is disabled for this interface, so I'm not sure how this queue is dropping packets, according to the maps nothing is mapped to 02-01.

How do I force the standalone to be the master? sw 1 priority XX(Higher then the existing stack)? Both the stack and the standalone have management addresses. Would it be ok to delete the stack ip address? That way, the standalone(master's address will be the only management address)?How should I connect the standalone 3750 to the stack? At present, the 3750 stack is connected via a cascade cable going from the stack 1 port of the top switch to the stack 2 port of the bottom switch.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Multicast In A 3750x Stack

Jan 31, 2012

I recently created a stack using (2) 3750x switches. I have three vlans on the stack (1,105,241) Vlan 105 is configured on 6509 core switches with multicasting and are connected to the stack via gigabit fiber. It is working well with clients on the Master or SW1, however clients on SW2 do not participate in multicasting Any client pc that is connected to SW2 vlan 105 does not show up in the "sh ip igmp snooping group" command. I can statically assign a client on SW2 to the mcast groups but but they fail to register on their own. I can take the cable connection from SW2 and plug it into an SW1 Vlan 105 port and it immediately becomes a member of the groups. I can then connect it back to the SW2 port and it disappears from the group membership. IGMP and PIM are configured with the defaults.
