Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509-E VSS 10gb Port Count?

Jan 15, 2012

Created two 6509s as VSS with just one 10gb connection?I know it is recommended to use both the 10gb connections on the sup-720 from below configuration guide
 
"
Information about VSL Topology  
#
A VSS contains two chassis that communicate using the VSL, which is a  special port group. Configure both of the 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports on  the supervisor engines as VSL ports.
"
 
But will the VSS come up if I use just the one?

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 Switching/Routing :: How To Edit Port On 6509

May 15, 2013

I am very new to configuring ports on a switch. My boss usually does the port configurations but I am starting to learn some of the basic commands. The commands I know how to do are; close a port by typing config t, int gi0/port# and typing shut. I know how to enable a port, but how can I add info to a port or copy settings from one port to another?

We have some ports that are configured for 192.168 addresses but most are 10.128 addresses. I need to configure a certain port to be able to receive 192.168 addresses.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509 Trunk To Port Channel

Apr 22, 2012

I have 2 Cisco 6509 switches linked together via single Fibre as a trunk.I want to change this to a port channel where I will add another 3 fibre ports to the port channel but what order do I do this to minimise any disruption.

1-Configure PortChannel and add the 3 new ports, this will bring up the Port Channel but what effect will this have on traffic currently going over the single Trunk link? Will spanning tree go mad, how will switches react?

2-Convert existing Trunk link to Portchannel then add in new ports to PortChannel, I guess in doing this there will be a small hit on traffic as it changes to a port channel.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509 Vlan Flapping Between Port-channels

Mar 10, 2012

We have a pair Cisco 6509 switch in which 2 * 48 Port 1G line cards and 1 * 16 Port 10G line Card, FWSM and Sup 720 are installed.We have Cisco UCS and HP Blade servers.Cisco UCS servers are connected to Cisco 6509 switch using Fabric Interconnect, and HP Servers are directly connected to core switches.Recently the team made many changes in the network. Upgraded the IOS in Cisco 6509 switch, Configured Port profiling , MAC Pinning , HBA Cards to UCS / Nexus 1000V Infrastructure. After this change they lost the connectivity to UCS and HP Serers. Every tower is checking at their end.
 
The Network Team has reverted back the core switch with old IOS , but still the problem persisit.I could only see the following error log in the core switch. There are two port-channels one between core 1 and core 2. The other is between core switch and FWSM module. [code]

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Set Port Vlan On 6509 Running In Vtp Client Mode

Jan 14, 2013

I'm working at a company that has several 6509 switches running CatOS.  They have two of the 6509's running in vtp server mode and the rest as clients.  I set up a new vlan from one of the vtp servers and it propagated out.  The problem comes when I try to assign a port on one of the vtp clients to this new vlan.  It gives me an error that the switch must be in vtp server mode to add/delete vlans.  I'm not trying to add/or delete a vlan just trying to add a port into an existing vlan.  I'm hesitant to put the switch in vtp server mode.  Is this a CatOS thing or is there a specific command to accomplish this?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509 - Can't Change Native Vlan On Trunk Port?

Jun 6, 2012

I have several closets with Cisco 3560 on the edge that I'd like to change the vlan that's used for the management vlan on each. In the core I have a Cisco 6509 with Sup720's.
 
I'd like to do this by changing the native vlan on the trunk port on the core 6509 interface that connects to the 3560. and leave the management vlan on the 3560 as vlan 1.
 
Seems trivial but what I tried didn't work and I didn't have the window to troubleshoot. I'll paste the simplified configs for  the interfaces  below

6509 configs:

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509-E Switches Interconnected On Layer 3 Port Channel

Oct 3, 2012

We are currently designing  Layer 3 to the edge EIGRP solution  for our customers. The network is a hybrid of collapsed  core (Core to access) as well as a three layer design (Core/Distro/Access) for connectivity to the Data Centre, Internet, Wireless Blocks etc.The  core of the network contains two 6509-E switches interconnected on a  Layer 3 Port channel (no VSS). Access Layer switches (3750-X series running Stackwiseplus protocol)  connect to the core switches over p2p routed links and Distribution layer switches (3750X stackwiseplus) provide connectivity to the  Data centre, Internet, wireless blocks etc.
 
The access and distribution switch stacks(Cisco 3750-X) are set up with two or three member switches with uplinks multihomed to the primary and secondary core switch with each uplink included in EIGRP. In each of the stacks, one of the switches controls the operation of the stack, which will be  the stack master.As the Cisco Stackwise architecture is not SSO-capable but NSF aware, all Layer 3 fuctions must be re-established during a master switch outage. To minimize control plane impact and improve Layer3 convergence, uplinks should be diverse and originate from the member switches instead of the Master switches in the respective stack. This is as per Cisco recommended design solution.The above solution can be setup if there are more than two switches in the stack. i.e. uplinks are configured on the backup member switch modules.
 
1.But what about stack with two switches..Which switch should be set up as the Master for a two member stack with uplinks to the core primary and secondary from each switch(Master and Backup)
 
2. For Layer 3 routing, does the routing takes precedene over switch failures? Say for eg. In a two member stack, the master switch with uplink to primary fails, does EIGRP provide a fast convergence to route traffic via backup secondary and does not wait for the control plane on the switch stack to converge? All the access to core links will be set up for ECMP.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509 / WS-X6704-10GE Module And Port Status?

Dec 7, 2011

We have two 6509 switches with one WS-X6704-10GE module in each of them. There is an optical cable between the two switches plugged in  WS-X6704-10GE module on both sides. When you shut down the port on one side the other port still stays as up and you need phisycally to unplug the cable to have it down. The same behaviour is seen no matter on which of the two switches you shut down the port, the opposite one always stays as up and only removal of the cable makes it go down.
 
The ports are configured quite simply:
 
interface TenGigabitEthernet1/1
switchport
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport trunk allowed vlan 1-10
no ip address
udld port
 
The IOS version is 12.2(18)SXF8

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 4500 Can Connect 10Gb SFP+ To Standard 1Gb SFP

Nov 15, 2011

I'm looking at provisioning a Catalyst 4500 with a WS-X4712-SFP+E module to allow for future 10Gb connectivity via 10Gb SFP+ interfaces.  These cards are backwards compatible with standard 1Gb SFP interfaces but I'm wondering about the other way around; ie. can you populate these blades with 10Gb SFP+ interfaces when they connect to Catalysts with only 1Gb SFP interfaces at the other end? 
 
The data sheets don't really explain this.  It seems pointless getting 10Gb SFP+ interfaces for the 4500 when it's only 1Gb at the access layer end, but these access switches will be replaced in the near future (~12 months) and if the 10Gb SFP+ interfaces support connections at 1Gb speeds upfront, it would mean I could retain these interfaces when the access switches upgrade to 10Gb connectivity capabilities down the track. Does the 10Gb SFP+ interfaces are compatible with 1Gb SFP's or only other 10Gb SFP+ interfaces?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750 Stack - 10GB And 1GB Connections

May 22, 2012

I have two 3750 stacks that are currently connected using two1GB fiber connections in an etherchannel. I now added new switches to each stack with 10GB modules in them. We would like to bring up the 10GB connection, but still have one of the 1GB lines as a backup, or even the whole etherchannel. Is there a way for us to make the 10GB the main and the 1GB the standby?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 5596 - Extending 10Gb/s LAN Between Sites

Dec 14, 2011

For a simple 4x sites design for backup consolidation (3x sites connected to one central site), does the design in the attached JPEG make sense and is the configuration achievable using the specified parts?
 
Brief Explanation:
- Each site is to have servers with 2x 10Gb/s Ethernet (both teamed/bonded/etc) and one NIC on each of the 2x switches in the site (if possible). Each site will also have 2x Cisco Nexus 5596UP Switch (though the P version may be used instead of the UP).
- Two of the sites are within 10KM of the central site
- The last site is about 35KM from the central site
- It is required to have a minimum bandwidth of 10Gb/s between any site and the central site
- I have specified 10Gb/s LW SFP+ and 10Gb/s LW SFP+ (for the 2x 10KM and 1x 35KM sites)
- are there any special licenses needed?
- as asked before, can such a "simple" design work as-is?
- what sort of single-mode fiber would fit the bill (especially for the 40KM link) - 9nm?

I now have a reason to install with a 1Gb uplink to the Core. I am using a GLC-LH module at each end. I did configure the TE1/1/1 port for the uplink. Does not work though..Do I need to configure the two GI1/1/1 and 1/1/2 ports for uplink, remove the TE configuration for the uplink to work? Using the UNIVERSAL code with a LANBase license.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Nexus 5548 10GB-LR Interfaces Not Coming Up

Jun 21, 2012

We are trying to connect 2 nexus 5558UP (5.1.(3)N1(1)) with 10G-SFP+-LR interfaces. The interfaces are not genuine cisco's (smartoptics) but as far as we can tell, they are accepted by the hardware. If we take a look at the optical levels, we can see that the switches can see eachother (double-checked by bringing down one interface to see if optical levels really disappears) on optical level, well within limits. I found a notice about changing debounce timers but this doesn't work, setting it to 0 or 1000 doesn't make a difference. Copies of the different show int commands can be found at the end of this text.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: EtherChannel On 3750G-16TD-S And 3750x-48T-S With 10GB

Nov 20, 2011

Any experience with bundling a 10GB interface on a 3750G-16TD-S with a WS-C3750X-48T-S with a 10GB interface. I have worked with 5 different TAC engineers and so far I have not gotten an answer on why the switch will not let me bundle the 10GB with another 10GB interface.
 
Same switch Stack – not a cross stack.
 
Tried every configuration possible with no luck.   I originally thought it might be the stack-ring speed – I corrected that today and it is running at 32GB –
 
The only thing I can think of now is it might be a hardware limitation on the 3750G-16TD-S ?
 
Q. What performance of the 10 Gigabit Ethernet port on the Cisco Catalyst WS-C3750G-16TD switches?

A. The Ten Gigabit Ethernet uplink on the Cisco Catalyst WS-C3750G-16TD switches is 1.25:1 oversubscribed and provides maximum throughput of 8Gb/s.   –

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 10Gb Ethernet Connectivity Upgrade Required Between 2 6509s

May 1, 2012

We currently have 2 6509s with redundant Sup720-3b's and PFC3B daughter cards which are connected together over dark fibre using the Gb fibre connectivity built into the supervisors.
 
The requirement is to upgrade this connection to 10Gb as inexpensively as possible.
 
Do I need to purchase new supervisors in order to do this properly or can I use a separate 10Gbe module (we have a spare slot), i.e. can I get away without using the connectivity built into the supervisors?
 
The other idea I had was putting a couple of 3750-X switches at each end to sit in front of the 6509s and provide the 10Gb connectivity between sites.  I could then use the existing Gb uplinks on the supervisors whilst also providing connectivity for some devices that currently connect to the 6509s but could just as well connect here.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750x 12.2(58)SE2 IPBASE 10gb Uplink Ports Not Being Displayed

we have just purchased a few 3750x's that we intend to add to our 3750g stacks.  We've purchased the 10gb uplink modules, C3kx-nm-10gt, but when they are installed they are not appearing in the switches web gui nor can you configure them correctly.  If we upgrade a 3750x to 15.0.1 they seem to work fine.  All of our current 3750g's are running 12.2(58)SE2 IPBASE so we don't really want to have to upgrade them all to 15.0.1
 
Are we missing something or do the 10gb modules only work properly with ios 15.0.1?
