Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3825 / Replacing Routing Function With 3750 Switch?
Jul 27, 2012
I have the task of replicating the router config on a 3825 router on a 3750 switch. Reason is we are taking out the router and replacing it with the switch to make use of the router for other functions.
Below is main part of the router config:
multilink bundle-name authenticated
license udi pid CISCO3825 sn FCZxxxxxxx
vlan internal allocation policy ascending
The 3750 switch I have runs C3750E-UNIVERSALK9-M, Version 12.2(55)SE3 on a LAN BASE license.
The first thing I have done is to order for a license upgrade to IP BASE which would give the support for OSPF routing.I do not see much of an issue with the Interface configs, however, I am not too sure about replicating the routing config on the switch.
My question is can I run the commands as shown for the OSPF routing on the switch? If not, can I get suggestions on how best to set this up on the switch?
In my MDF I have a 4stack of the WS-3750-48P switches. Is it possible to replace one with a C3750X48PF-S with out causing any issues? Or would it be better to just have 3 stacked and trunk this one to the core 4506. Keeping in mind I bought this one to expand the port number for one of our remote offices.. I would hate to send them the gig switch when there isn't as much usage..Besides if I can get my CFO on this switch he might authorize me to replace the rest... He is reticent to believe it makes really all that much of a difference.
I was wondering what general steps might be taken in order to "replace two(2) 3750 (stacked) with one (1) 3750X - Server Access". General steps and what I might have to do configuration wise. I know i'm copy pasting the existing configs into the new switch, but are there any caveats?
The stackwise marketing info states that when a failed member is replaced with a new switch the replacement switch "gets the exact configuration of the old device". I would figure it takes a little more than just disconnecting and connecting a new switch in the same spot on the stack. doing this with 3750 family switches? What are the steps to prepare the stack for a new member? what steps need to be taken on the replacement switch before insertion into the stack to make sure it gets configured like the unit it was replacing?
I'm due to replace a stack of 2 x 3750 switches very soon with 2 x 3750Gs. These 2 current switches are the VTP server for a small domain. I have put the config on the new switches switches and I made it a server and used the same VTP domain and password etc and got the VLAN info ported over.Now I did this a while back and noticed the switches are in transparent mode with a revision number of 0, I need to set this back to server and swap the switches out but the revision will be lower than the client switches (around rev 200), what do I need to do?
We have a stack of switches that is at the max number of members allowed in the stack. Problem is we are running out of port density and need to add more ports. So instead of adding a whole new stack I would rather replace 2 of the 24-port swicthes with 48-port switches.
If the two 24-port swicthes we are removing are stack members and neither of them are the stack master, I should be able to replace the 24-port switches with the 48-port switches without bringing the master offline? If the new 48-port switches are running the same IOS version as the current 24-port swicthes, they should add themselves to the stack?Would I have to tell the new 48-port swicthes what switch numbers they are replacing in order for them to be added to the stack since we are at the max number of members?Also since the 48-port swicthes are replacing 24-port switches will the master give the 48-port switches the configuration for only the 24-ports?
I have a supervisor blade, (VS-S720-10G-3C), in a 6513 that is faulty and needs replaced. Do I need to replace the IOS on the new supervisor blade to make sure it is the same as the IOS image that is on the Active supervisor module, or will it synchronize automatically?
In the synchronization process, the active supervisor engine checks the standby supervisor engine run-time image to make sure that it matches its own run-time image. The active supervisor engine checks three conditions:
# •If it needs to copy its boot image to the standby supervisor engine # •If the standby supervisor engine bootstring needs to be changed # •If the standby supervisor engine needs to be reset
I was reading the above documentation that mentioned the active supervisor should copy the image if it detects a newly installed standby supervisor blade with a different image, is this correct or was it referring to synchronizing the configuration file?
I have been looking into this for a while and I can't seem to figure out why my 2nd vlan is not able to connect properly to the net.
My switch has 12 ports where my devices connects directly, they are all on Vlan 1 and they all work perfectly. on Port 12 I have a dlink router that is connected to a cable modem. the dlink router has an Ip address of 192.168.0.20
I created a second vlan (vlan2) and enabled dhcp relay on it. then I assigned port 9 on the switch to (vlan2)my laptop which is connected to port 9 seems to get an ip address fine and able to ping only some devices on my network (vlan1) and is not able to go out to the internet. I think it has to do with the routes. [code]

I'm running into what seems a basic ip routing config problem with a Catalyst 3750 (IP Base) switch. I have several VLANS configured on the switch with IP routing enabled, and the switch is connected to the inside interace of a new ASA 5520 as follows:
ASA5520 IP (Default gateway): 192.168.1.1Switchport Gi1/0/1 is configured as a routed port, IP address 192.168.1.3 255.255.255.0Example VLAN is VLAN 100, IP address 192.168.100.1 255.255.252.0 From the switch CLI, I can ping all VLAN addresses, as well as the ASA5520, and the client laptop I'm testing with from VLAN 100.
From the client laptop on VLAN 100, I can ping all switch interface and VLAN addresses (inter-VLAN routing is working), including 192.168.1.3, but I CANNOT ping the default gateway at 192.168.1.1.
Here is the relevant configuration information on the 3750:
! no aaa new-model switch 1 provision ws-c3750x-24 system mtu routing 1500
I have two 3750-X configured to be a stack and I am planning to re-rack these somewhere else. What I would like to know is what are the effects of having the master switch itself lose power? Does it immediately just make the member take over master (there should be no election since there are only 2 switches??) and there would be no loss of connectivity?
I'm fairly new to Cisco products am in the process of developing my network knowledge on a deeper level. I have a 3825 with a HWIC-4ESW and I'm struggling to fully understand how the two "see" each other. I've setup a V LAN with a layer 3 address on the HWIC and added the switch ports to it. This seemed to allow devices connected to the switch ports to talk to the built-in router ports. I thought this was all making sense until i applied an access-list to the router port. It's a simple ACL i'm just using for testing and the only thing it does is blocks telnet from anywhere. I know the ACL is setup properly because if I connect a device directly to the router port i cannot telnet to the port. However, if i connect a device to one of the switch ports, i am able to telnet to the router port successfully.
It seems that I'm missing something with how traffic flows from the switch port to the router ports and how the two "see" each other.
I have a 3825 router that I have setup with the following: [code]
Its on a trunked port to my 3750 switch. I am new to this compnay and havent changed it over to IP routing on the switch quite yet.Both Vlans are setup on the 3750 without an SVI. All hosts on VLAN 1 can ping both interfaces without issue.
If I put a host on the 172 VLAN it cannot ping anything on the router. If I put another host on the VLAN they can ping each other. If I put an SVI on switch the 172 VLAN hosts can ping the switch, but still not the router. ONce I put the SVI on the switch, it can no longer ping the router. I am giving the SVI ip 172.22.1.5/24.
I have verfied with TAC that the trunk is allowing the vlans to the router.
I have been working with TAC. They have asked me to update the code on the switch, but I think they are just punting. [code]
I had a bad expirience with Switch 3750-X. Because of an auditing security processess, my customer ran a software called "Nessus" to do a scanning of vulnerability on the network. When this software is point to switch, the process of the switch will next to 100% and reset. The software only do a listening on the ports to see what ports are opened and the switch should not reset because this. Bellow is the log os switch on the moment of test; we note that the processess 'HTTP' rise moments before the switch reset. I disable the HTTP service on switch but the problem persist. The test was made only one machine connected to switch.
We have three Cisco 3750 - 48port POE -LAN switches and i am trying to see if there are any issues when we stack POE and Non-POE type of switches.Aslo looking for information on the advanatage and disadvantage the stacking can provide on a Cisco 3750 48port.
The question is: Will a 3750 switch route Jumbo frame sizes (e.g. 9000 MTU)?
We know that we can change the System MTU to 9000, and someone on a previous thread said that we can change the Routing MTU to 9000 as well, although I couldn't figure out how to do that. However, regardless of how we configure the System MTU and Routing MTU, I don't think we're able to adjust the MTU on L3 VLAN interfaces, so if we want to actually "route" between VLANs on the switch, we're limited to 1500 MTU.
Our situation is that we have a customer connecting to our 3750 switch, and this customer wants to use Jumbo frames. The customer connects to our 3750 switch via their own VLAN, with their own L3 VLAN interface configured on the switch. The customer will point their traffic towards the L3 VLAN interface, then we want to route them onto another VLAN, via a different L3 VLAN interface, before forwarding their traffic. Because of the limitations noted above, specificially regarding the routing between these VLANs via L3 interfaces, I do not think we'll be able to support 9000 MTU frames on this 3750 switch. I think the L3 VLAN interfaces will limit us to 1500 MTU, regardless of what we configured via the global System MTU and Routing MTU settings.
How do you properly remove the QOS queues and configs from the switch.A was using auto qos which created a whole mess of qos configs on my running-config. I did "no mls qos" in conf term but that did not remove the queues.
i want to remove an access layer 3750 48 POE master switch and replace with a new 3750 switch in the stack. i want to copy the same configuration to new switch since the old switch is having POE issue and I got replacement of the malfunctioned switch. we have VTP domain is configured in the network...
In Cisco 3750 facing high CPU utilization for specific period. During this period traffic response times across the switch degrades. Steps to identify interface potentially generating traffic. I have attached 'sh proc cpu history' , ' sh ip traffic', 'sh proc cpu sorted' during troubled period .
I have a 2 member 3750-x switch stack that was upgraded to 15.2 today via CNA. All the files were transfered and expanded correctly and it got to the step where the switches needed to be reloaded but on reload they froze.
I connected a console cable and power cycled the stack. I see the flash initialize and then the IOS image start to load. Lots of @ symbols and then nothing. It just sits there. The system light on the switches, while flashing green during the load, is now off. No light at all. But fans are running and the process will repeat itself if power cycled.
We currently have a stack of 5 x 3750 switches and i want to remove switch number 3 (it has the least number of things plugged in). What will happen to switch 4 and 5 will they be renumbered 3 and 4, and will the config automatically update this if it does?
I configured 3750 A switch with vlan 20 and its IP address 192.168.20.41Its default gateway was 192.168.20.3Then i configured 3750 B switch with same default gateway and vlan 20 IP 192.168.20.43My question is now when we stack it becomes single switch and now vlan 20 ip address is 192.168.20.43 thats only IP i can see.So how does stack switch choose vlan 20 IP?Does it choose highest IP address between two switches if they have same vlan 20 as in my case?Also when i go to switch 3750 b by session command and do sh ip route it does not show ip default gateway .Also it shows vlan 20 as admin down .
We have two 3750-x stacked switches with IP base license. We need to upgrade them to IP services license. I read some where that it is possible to install IP serivces license to only management switch and no need to purchase/install same license to other switches on the stack. But, I could not find/recall where I read it and as far as I know it was not official cisco documentation.
