Cisco Switching/Routing :: 2960S Unable To Connect To Core Switch
Sep 21, 2012
I have a problem with extending the LAN on a client site . They are looking to extend the LAN with a 2960S-series switch. Already in place is a 4510 switch which the 2960 is connected to via fibre. The 2 switches are both set up but there is no connectivity as I cant ping between them or anything. The management VLAN on the 2960 shows line up, protocol down, which I believe means the VLAN is enabled but there is a form of physical mismtach on the ports. I have attached the configs of both switches. I feel it might be a problem with GBIC module compatibility. The SFP installed on both ends of the switch are GLC-SX-MMD. On the 4510, the SFP sits in a twingig converter (CVR-X2-SFP) but there is no light on it at all when the cables are plugged in.
I have a stack with 4 2960S and 4 uplinks to the core. I was wondering if it is better to connect one uplink for each switch, or just connect two switches, thus the two members (2&4) not directly connected.
I have 2 units core swicth C4510R+E SUP7-E need to connect together for redundant purpose , i bought also 4X 10GE uplinks for each core switches .May i know how i shall connect both core switches together using my spec Catalyst 4500 E-Series 12-Port 10GbE (SFP+) ?
i configure the uplinks as etherchannel, i configure two svi interface on core switch int vlan 51(192.168.51.1) and int vlan 50(192.168.50.0) for this two svi int i configured two dhcp pool , when any of the pc is requesting for dhcp add i am getting dhcp request failed/
I'm trying to decide what switch to use as a core for 500 users. I'm currently looking at either 2 x 3750X stacks or 2 x 4500s with dual SUPs and PSUs, both options will provide the number of switchports required without the need for additonal access layer swiches. Which switch option is best to go for here? All of our services will be located in our data centre which will be connected using 2 1000Mbps MPLS circuits. I wont need any advanced L3 features and we are not likley to scale over 450 users. Also is it ok to use the dual switch stacks or chassis to provide the collapsed core/access layer or is it best to have a dedicated core (using one of the above options with less switchports) and having a dedicated accesss layer using 2960Gs for example. Our structured cabling terminates in a single comms room so we wont need to distribute switches throughout the office.
I use the Switch 2960S support PoE and 10 access points cisco.I have one more question:
-- If all 10 access points cisco use copper cable to connect to 2960S, 5 access points use power adapter and 5 access points use power from Switch. How Switch 2960S will provide power for 10 AP or switch 2960S will understand and only provide power for 5 APs?
We have two 6500 core switches and one(primary) of them is running in VTP transparesnt mode and the other (secondary) one is running in VTP client mode. I would like to change the VTP mode of the second switch to transparent mode. Would it cause any issue. I guess i have to create VLANs onto the switch.
I have a 3750X four-switch stack acting as the core of a fairly simple LAN. All I need to achieve (and this seems inordinately hard, but it is entirely likely that I'm just being dense) is to get access to the internet through my core switch, through the firewall and out through my VSAT. I've spoken at some length with the firewall providers (Cyberoam) and they tell me all I need to do when I migrate onto my new system (Cyberoam is currently in place at the entrance to our existing LAN) is change the local IP address of the Firewall, plug in the new switch to the LAN port, and away I go. Tried that, didn't work, so obviously I'm missing something.
I am planning to migrate the core switch from cisco 3750 to Cisco catalysts 6513 switch. What could be the best approach to minimize the downtime or avoid disrupting the production. I have couple of thoughts, one method is to build the core and then replace the existing core, another option is to build the new switch as the second VTP server and once it recieves all the VTP information then disconnect the old server.
choosing a core switch, to replace a swich 3com model 4924, its main function is to support a 4-LAN switch cisco 2960 (100 users) and a ring cluster of 12 servers.obs. Current 3com core switch has 56 Gbps performance and 41.6 million packets per second.
We had a core switch(30 vlans) in our environment and it's noticed that CPU utilization of the core switch is showing high during recent days. I have checked logs and processes, but couldn't find the root cause. The issue found only in the office hourly only(after that the cpu utilization is idle and normal). I have already referred the following link to troubleshoot the issue " [URL]
see the following outputs from the core switch
CPU utilization for five seconds: 99%/0%; one minute: 99%; five minutes: 99% PID Runtime(ms) Invoked uSecs 5Sec 1Min 5Min TTY Process 30 6687557041432420936 466 47.52% 47.10% 45.98% 0 Cat4k Mgmt LoPri 55 30667074884269560256 0 45.36% 45.50% 45.85% 0 IP Input 29 28552856922870089254 0 3.59% 3.50% 3.57% 0 Cat4k Mgmt HiPri
Note: Each Invalid source mac entry in each day from same port (above is the output after clearing logs before 3 days)
My queries regarding the issues are following
1) How can we find root cause regarding the high cpu utilization?
2) Is a single invalid mac address makes the cpu highly utilized for suppressing it?
I want to upgrade IOS for my production core 3750 switch. Below is Show version/fash output. I have IOS image "c3750-ipservicesk9-mz.122-55.SE7", need to confirm below concerns:-
1-As this is stackable switch do i need to upgrade on all Switch..i can see there are 3 flash while doing show flash? 2-Is above IOS image support with my switch? do i able to enable ssh? 3-is flash memory is enough to succefully upgrade IOS? 4-Any other point which i should keep in mind before upgrading..any special feature which this IOS wont support.
We have two core switches in our network (Cisco WS-4503). HSRP is working as Active-Standby mode. Recently it has been found that core 1 (which is in active mode) shown high CPU load (60% - 100%). Also found that the below mentioned process takes more CPU. Our network consist of around 30 Vlans. We have already checked for the solution in Cisco website [URL] but couldn't find exact reason. see the below outputs for core 1 switch.
Core1# sh processes cpu sorted CPU utilization for five seconds: 55%/3%; one minute: 65%; five minutes: 71%PID Runtime(ms) Invoked uSecs 5Sec 1Min 5Min TTY Process 30 1606933521086983644 147 24.79% 29.93% 35.85% 0 Cat4k Mgmt LoPri 29
I have the following: 1 5520 ASA connected to the internet, 2 core switches, and several access switches.Aside from implementing RSTP, VRRP, hard code access and trunk ports, is there any other recommendation you would like to add.
We have a Cat2960-S Series PoE+ currently running 12.2(55) SE5 ios with SW image C2960S-UNIVERSALK9-M.We want to upgrade the ios to the lastest version but found there are 2 version: 12.2(53) SE2 and 15.0(1) SE.Which is the best & suitable for upgrade?
After i have already configured my cisco switch 2960 , i configured my console as the below [code] after i reboot my switch , i found that the switch asked me for username . However i did not configure username , how can i solve this problem , without password reset . I have already configured 15 switch , 100% this problem will be in all switches.
I have hybrid network in which I want to configure VLAN on Cisco 2960 S switch. I have unmanged switch where my DHCP server and other servers are connected. Now I created two VLANs on cisco 2960S and they don't talk each other, but as soon as I connect unmanaged switch to 2960S switch, both VLANs start communicating which I don't want. I want to listen server traffic from unmanaged switch from both VLANs but simultaneously I don't want to communication between two VLANs.
I have enabled syslog on my Cisco 2960S swtich as shown below -
-logging facility local6 -logging host 10.11.12.122 transport tcp port 514
I have sent the port to TCP since that is what is configured on the SYSLOG server which is a CENTOS 5.8, running rsyslogd.I have tested the rsyslogd locally and it work.However i want to send any and all log messages in the buffer to my syslog server and it is not working.there is no firewall on the CENTOS and the ASA firewall filter is enabled for outgoing traffic.
I am trying to configure etherchannel on 2 2960S connected by a flexstack with 2 ports g1/0/52 and g2/0/52 on each 2960.
these switch are connected to a CAT4500, I know that I can only use LACP because of cross-stack but when I force the switch to use LACP witch channel-group 2 Mode active the switch do this :
%With PAgP enabled, all ports in the Channel should belong to the same switchCommand rejected (Port-channel2, Gi1/0/52): Invalid etherchnl mode % Range command terminated because it failed on GigabitEthernet1/0/52
I don't know how to bundle the 2 ports on the 2960 stack. each time I use : channel-group 2 mode on there is no error
but the switch do this :
*Mar 1 00:45:32.290: %EC-5-CANNOT_BUNDLE2: Gi2/0/52 is not compatible with Po2 and will be suspended (trunk mode of Gi2/0/52 is dynamic, Po2 is trunk) *Mar 1 00:45:32.531: %EC-5-CANNOT_BUNDLE2: Gi2/0/52 is not compatible with Po2
To setup SG300-20 as CORE switch and SF100-48 as Distribution switch.SG300-20 will have 2 VLAN(DATA and VOICE)
-192.168.14.1/24 DATA -18.104.22.168/24 VOICE
SF100-48 will also have 2 VLAN(DATA and VOICE)
-192.168.14.1/24 Desktop/Laptops -22.214.171.124/24 IP phones
Problem is when I tried to assign IP to any VLAN's the switch will just hang and loose my connection the light will stop blinking it will steady and i unable to access the switch until i turn off again?
I have a stack of 2960S (c2960s-universalk9-mz.122-55.SE2.bin) and the master has failed (used to have a priority of 14). The second switch has become master (priority 1) as can be seen below: [code]
If I connect a new blank 2960S (same IOS) through the stack ports, will the master sync its config to the new one without causing problems?As I understand the new blank switch will also have a priority of 1 and will by default be numbered as 1. So if the config is correctly synced and I later on want to make switch 1 the master, I need to set the priority: [code]
Im not going to lie, I'm pretty much a beginner when it comes to switches. I have recently purchased a second hand 3512 XL which I have managed to connect to via PuTTY and the console cable. I have familiarized myself with access privileges and resetting passwords and locating the IP address, etc.
I am trying to connect the switch to Cisco Network Assistant however I am unable to connect to the switch over a cat5 on the first port (nothing else is on the network, just a server directly to the switch). I have tried pinging the switch from my server, and similarly I have tried pinging the server from the switch and each time there is 100% fail rate.
