I have a small network using a 24 port 3750 switch. I need to add five computers in another room and only have one Cat 6 cable running there and no room left on the 3750. I got a 3650 to put in the new room with the new computers. The problem is, whenever I plug the new switch into the 3750, it shuts down the port and gives me an err-disable. I can do a shut/no shut and re-enable the port. I searched the web and read about trunking and clusters. I'm not sure which, if either, is appropriate. I see various documentation that shows you can put one switch behind the other. But nothing tells me the configuration which will allow it.
If I have two switches in a stack can both stack able switches be connected to a core switch through gbics or just only one switch can be connected to the core and the other switch connects to the other stack able switch through an Ethernet port which uses as a gateway to the core switch?
I am in the process of migrating our existing server farm subnets to our new Nexus server farm and I discovered something I wasn’t expecting. My intention is to migrate our existing legacy server farm which is comprised of for paired 3750 switches off of our core 6509s and onto the Nexus and connect them to the 2232s via multi gig port-channel connections, two port channels per switch stack.
NOTE this is expected to be a temporary move as next year we intend to install additional N2Ks and move servers over to these directly. But to minimize the outage/downtime it will be better to move the subnets and switchs all at once.
These connections would be grouped 1 gig connections as port channels, one from each switch into one of the two 2232s.
Problem I discovered is Cisco does not intend to have switches connected to the Nexus and it immediately disables the ports when they see BPDUs.
I found a config that does work and it does fail over from one port-channel connection to the other but with the limitation that when the original port channel comes back online it does not fail back over to the original one, an acceptable situation for us. But I am wondering if Cisco would support this design if we did experience issues down the road.
The only issue I really see is to get it to work the config is different on the two N5Ks, see the pert config below for the connections. Both are running the same OS

If I have two stackable switches one switch uplinks to one 6509 core switch and the other connection uplinks to another 6509 core switch, and also the other stackable switch does not connect to the core switches. Because I am using hsrp and also we are not using vss then one uplink to the core is not in used only ones is so then how does creating an etherchannel between does two uplinks to both core switches benefit me in anyway such as more bandwith and using both uplinks at the same time or I'm I wrong?
If I have two stackable switches were only one stackable switch has two uplinks one uplink goes to one core 6509 switch and the other uplink goes to the other 6509 core switch can a Layer 3 etherchannel be used if each uplink go to a different core switch, by the way hsrp is running between both switches and also can you give an example how data will be routed from the stackable switch through the ethernetchannel to one of the core switch accross the WAN to another core switch?
I have got a new 48port Cisco catalyst 4948 switch, which I configured as a VTP client and connected to Cisco 3750 which is a VTP Server (this switch is on production network). I connected port g1/0/48 from 3750 to port g1/48 on 4948 through a straight cable and made both ports as trunk port (I also tried through cross cable). The problem is these two switches are not detecting. For testing I connected a PC directly to one of the port on 4948 (making that a switch port) still the LED on switch didn’t glow up. Is there any special command needs to be run on 4948 switches to activate its physical ports?
I'm introducing a Cisco 3750 switch into a Avaya environment for testing/lab. I'm concerned about any STP, VTP problems I might create as I'm going to give a address on the Management VLAN and connect it to a trunk port on a ERS5520 Avaya. I've set the switch to transparent mode and the VTP revision is set to 0. I've checked the STP priority but it doesn't give any - there is no output because it is not connected. I wouldn't be so concerned but, I'm not sure if any config has been on it before.Also, is there any way for me to see the STP prioroity without having it connected?
I am using a 3750 as a default gateway for multiple Vlans on a few 2960 switches. The trunk lines are configured and working and I have assigned ip addresses to each of the Vlan interfaces on the 3750. My issue is that I can only ping the ip address on the Vlan interface of the 3750 if I have a working computer plugged directly into the Vlan on the 3750. I only have 3 vlans on the 3750 that have hosts directly connected (vlans 2, 10 and 40) the other vlans ( 20 and 70) don't have any clients plugged into them on the 3750 but the hosts reside on 2 different 2960s that connect via trunk ports. How do I keep the vlan interface on the 3750 switch pingable when I don't have hosts directly connected in that vlan on the 3750? (yes, I have enabled ip routing on the 3750)
I have a simple design with 3750. I configured a route-map which define a next hop. I defined this route-map on a policy on a vlan interface.When I test some ping and a debug ip policy and it seems that my policy never match.Is there any mechanism that prevent the switch from using PBR? I think of CEF .

Switch A connects to Swich B and C using port channel. I am going to bring down one link on each.
switch A is server farm , switch B and C are core 01 and 02 . and all are 3750 switches.
1. what will be the impact on the network in terms of spanning tree recalculation 2. what duration are we talking about until the spanning tree convergence happens? 3.I plan to shut down the link from CLI to bring down the links
How do i go about setting up a TFTP server from laptop to Cisco ws-C3750 48P Switch, I need to pull the image off the switch and place it on an other switch that has a corrupt image, The switch which is corrupted is the same as above Cisco ws-C3750 48P.
I have a small campus network using 3750 stackable switches and a 3725 router (see diagram below). Currently the 3725 router is handling inter-vlan routing for the campus and it looks like it's not able to handle the amount of traffic we're pushing. The router CPU sometimes hits above 90% due traffic load. What I would like to accomplish is move L3 process over to the 3750 MDF stack and the IDF1 stack. I am thinking creating SVI's on both MDF stack and IDF1 stack, run HSRP between the two stacks and may be do load balance traffic between the two stack as well.
Looking for feedback from other organizations that have large 3750 stacks. I've got one stack of (8) 3750's composed of (6) 3750G's and (2) plain 3750's. This particular stack is usually unresponsive to SNMP queries and often fails to write config when we make changes. After a couple tries it will finally go. Part of my probably here is likely the plain 3750's that always boot faster and come up as the master. I should manually set the master to one of the G's. What I'm wondering is who else has 7-9 3750's stacked and are they performing well for SNMP, telnet, etc? I've got another newer stack of 7 3750E's that I need to add one more switch to. Need to decide if I want extended downtime to break the stack up or just add the 3750X to make member 8 and hope it performs well. I have 50+ 3750 stacks working great on our campus.
We currently have a site with a very simple topology that uses a 3750X switch stack for a collapsed core. Everyday, the users have a conference call and experience poor voice quality.Its not bad when users call from several conference phones, but when everyone calls in on individual phones, there is choppy and almost inaudible voice quality experienced. The voice traffic flow would be as follows: Phone <-> 3750 switch <-> Voice GW We have packet captures showing that RTP packet loss is occuring from the phone to the voice gateway, but none from the voice gateway to the phones. We also have drops in the output queues that match drops on the asics. I can reset the counters and they will be clear until the call, and then they increment significantly during the call. The voice gateway and phones are non-Cisco. The switch stack has 6 switches. We are trusting the DSCP settings on the phones. All the queue drops from the phones are usually in queues 0-3, but all drops on the voice gateway is in queue 0. Below are the QoS settings; they are mostly default and we have not changed any queuing, thresholds, or buffers. Should we specify larger buffers and threshold for a designated queue and send EF traffic to that queue?

If I have two stackable switches one that connects to the 6509 core switch and the other switch does not, do I have to uplink the switch to the other switch so that switch has route to the core switch or because the switches are daisy chain there is not need to cable one switch to to the other switch connected to core switch?
I am trying to do ios upgrade on 5 stacked 3750 switches. All the switches have different model number, so i am wondering which image file i should download. As far as i understand all the stacked switches should have the same IOS, i may be wrong. The switches have the following model numbers and SW images;
I have client who has two distant offices with 3750 L3 as core (do all vlan routing for local office) and multiple L2 access switches with multiple VLAN’s connected to it. First 3750 is hub also connected to internet, second 3750 is spoke and acting as a router on stick. We have eigrp configured on both side ISP provided client 100Mbps link as a trunk with two vlan; vlan10 for voice and vlan20 for data. We assigned two small subnets to these vlans 10.15.17.0/29 and 10.15.17.9/29. Hub addresses are 10.15.17.1 and 10.15.17.9 respectively. How to force voice over VLAN10 and data via vlan20, but still do some load balancing? How to setup default route on second (router on stick) switch?
We have several stacks of 3750 switches where this problem is occurring. All of the switches are running IOS version 12.2(50)SE3. (Yes, I know it's old.)
We're seeing inconsistency in how the stack reports members when issuing the following commands:
sow switch show version show inventory
Not all members are showing up in the output of the "show version" and "show inventory" commands. For example:
HUNTI-WV-WDAC03#sh switch H/W Current Switch# Role Mac Address Priority Version State ---------------------------------------------------------- 1 Member 108c.cff2.ea00 15 0 Ready 2 Member 8cb6.4f0a.a600 1 0 Ready *3 Master 8cb6.4f0a.9c00 1 0 Ready (all three switches in stack are displayed)(code)
why the AutoQoS macro does not implement "priority-queue out" when configured on the 3750 platform running certain versions of software. The only other platform I have experience with AutoQos is on the 4500 and it enables priority queuing as expected. So what's up with autoqos on the 3750 on version 12.2(35)SE5?
When it comes to configuring QoS on campus user/phone access ports there are some important settings that can and should be considered but one can argue that enabling the priority queue is the single most impactful or important command. So I was very surprised and concerned when I didn't see priority-queue out. Cisco describes AutoQoS as a simple, quick way of deploying QoS on the LAN and it precludes you from having to learn all of the differences between hardware platforms. But is it true that this tool produces an incomplete config solution? Let me know if I am missing something.
Here is an example of what AutoQoS produces when applied to a 4507 with WS-X4648-RJ45V+E:(other interface commands are left out for simplicity)

Here is an example of what AutoQoS produces when applied to a 3750 running version 12.2.(35)SE5: (no priority-queue out)
I am wanting to etherchannel from a 3750 stack to core Layer 3 switches (also 3750) with a cable going to each core switch, I have put both core switches and the stack under a 28bit subnet mask, but I dont seem to be load balancing across both links.
I have 3 3750 staking switch with the following configuration:
H/W Current Switch# Role Mac Address Priority Version State ---------------------------------------------------------- 1 Member 442b.0350.9400 1 1 Ready 2 Member 442b.0357.8780 2 1 Ready 3 Master 442b.036f.a800 3 1 Ready
The new switch is installed to be wired to the master switch. the swtich 3 (* 3 Master Ready 442b.036f.a800)my question is: if you disconnect the wiring from the master stack to connect to the new switch, it is possible that the new switch change the current configuration of stacking.
-Can I just add the new switch with clean configuration without changing the current configuration ? -How is assigned the stack number? i need the new switch be with the GI4 / x?. I can I manually by assigning ports? -If I want to the new 3750 member witch lower prioridad, can I change priority before adding to stack?
I have customer who has as Core Switch one Cisco Catalyst 3750 with the IOS c3750-ipbase-mz.122-35.SE5.I know that this image support DHCP Server configuration, but I like to implementate new vlans (approx 15) and I want to know if this switch support 15 DHCP Servers.
On a csico 3750 switch I have ntp server < IP of stratum 1 Time Server> I want the swit to sync to the to time server and provide time to peers on my network. Do I have to be configured for ntp peer < IP of stratum 1 Time Server> for that to work?
I am facing a problem in implementing HSRP. My scenario is like this, I have two 3750 switches and I have a server with two NICs. I want to run HSRP in these two switches. By the way the server is connected directly with the switches. I mean each NIC to each switch.we have teamed the two NIC (Active / Standby).what configuration need to done in switches to work HSRP.
CiscoSwitch1(4506) has 3 VLANs(12,13,14) and Switch2(4948) has 3 different VLANs(22,23,24) and IP routing has been enabled in both switches with SVI interfaces for each vlan. intervlan routing is works fine.Now there is a requirement to connect these switches together. Vlan 12 on the Cisco switch 4506 has to be made available from vlan 22 from Switch2(4948). basically Vlan 12 is having a multicast source (188.8.131.52 & 184.108.40.206) which should be accessabile from vlan 22 of cisco switch 4948.I got 2 ideas
1) Create a trunk between these switches and configure L2 vlan(12) in cisco 4948...i know theoritically it should work but what my concern is Ip routing enabled in both switches will it create any issues? is it a gud solution to this requirement?
2) Create a separate IP network on the ports connecting to both switches and set up routes to the networks.ex- console(config)#ip route 192.168.10.10 255.255.255.0 192.168.20.1.
I am connecting power cable (series power cables) on 3750 stacks. i have connected them the same way the stack cables are connected i.e. fo rexample on a stack with 3 3750s:
1- fitst slot on fist switch connected the second slot last switch in the stack.
2- second slot/ port on the first switch to the first on second and seoncd on teh second switch to first on the third switch.
this how they are alway been stacked.Now, I need to connect power cables and I have followed the same method for stacks up to 4 switches. it seems that if a stack has more tham 4 switches, then the cabling will be dofferent!?I was wondering what will be on the cabling scheme for stacks more than 4 switches.
