Cisco Switching/Routing :: Adding 2960s To Existing Stack Of Two POE Switches

Feb 27, 2013

I have to add a 2960s PoE switch to an existing stack of two 2960s PoE switches. If The new switch has no configuration on it and the existing stack is broken by pulling te stack cables and then new cables are added and everything re-cabled correctly will the new switch assume the configuration from the stack without any issues?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Adding Two 2960S To Existing Stack

Oct 1, 2012

I need to add two additional 2960S switches to my stack. I saw a diagram that showed how a 4 switch stack can be connected, but I couldn't find much detail on adding a switch to an existing stack (besides master election). The output below shows how the existing stack is connected and its state
SW#sh switch detail
Switch/Stack Mac Address : 0011.2222.3333
H/W   Current

I will need to break one of the stack rings between SW1 and SW2 in order to connect the new switches. Does it really matter which ring I break to connect the additional switches? Does one ring act as primary? If so, I'd rather not break that ring so this process is transparent as possible. Also, is there any benefit to disabling the stack port vs just disconnecting the cable?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Adding 3750 Switch To Existing Stack?

Nov 23, 2011

I am looking to add a new 3750 Switcch to an existing stack shown below
Switch   Ports Model             SW Version             SW Image
------   ----- -----             ----------             ----------
*   1   26     WS-C3750-24P       12.2(35)SE5             C3750-IPBASE-M
     2   26     WS-C3750-24P       12.2(35)SE5             C3750-IPBASE-M
     3   26     WS-C3750-24P       12.2(35)SE5             C3750-IPBASE-M

I have looked on notes to add a switch to an existing stack and haven’t identified answers on how the IOS will be affected on the new switch – will it downgrade to the current stack version or will the current stack upgrade to its version. At this moment in time I would prefer if the new switch IOS downgraded to the current stack IOS version.The new switch is a 3750V2 – will this affect how it joins the stack?The new switch has the image of IPBASEK9-M – again will this affect how it joins the stack?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Adding Switch To Existing Stack 3750

Oct 16, 2012

I am attempting to add and Catalyst 3750 - 12 port Gigabit switch to an existing stack of 3750 48 port switches (non-X fabric). I am not sure how to proceed. These are the two questions/thoughts I have. Any additional perspective I should have before proceeding.

What kind of configuration should I apply to the Gig switch before adding it to the stack?I am sure I will need to assign priority to the new switch, ideally, it will act as master.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: How To Add Four 3750 Switches Into Existing Stack

Sep 22, 2012

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

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?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: To Use Flexstack To Stack Two 2960S 48 Port Switches

Oct 11, 2012

I would like to use flexstack to stack two Cisco 2960S 48 Port switches (2960S-48TD-L) for redundancy. Each switch will have a single 10G uplink into our Nexus 7K. One switch in the stack will terminate to linecard 6 (N7K-F248XP-25) and the other switch will terminate to linecard 7 (N7K-F248XP-25). My question is how many flexstack cables are needed? Do I need only one cable or do I need two to connect the two 2960s ?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Adding N5K To Existing Core

Mar 3, 2013

I need your input on how to appropriately introduce an N5K with Jumbo enanbled to a prexisting Core Network (Stack of Cisco 3750G Switches) without making any major alteration on the Core configs (everything is happy). The idea is to move two High I/O servers to the N5K during a transitional phase. I already have a fair understanding of what Jumbo-Frames are and what it does. Keep Jumbo-Frames within the N5K ONLY.

- Traffic is Data traffic, not storage/iSCSI
- The servers host our ERP applications and MySQL that is accessed heavily by users
- N5K to C3750G connectivity is a Port-Channel consisting of 4x1GB ports
- The servers are to remain on VLAN 2 (Data VLAN)
- The Core Switch is L3 and the boundaries reside here

Cisco Switching/Routing :: SC/LC Cable Between 2960S Stack And 4948

Aug 9, 2012

I'm connecting the two devices above and I need an LC to SC fiber cable. It should be pretty simple but I've seen two different types of LC/SC cables - one is 8.3/125 and one is 62.5/125. I believe the 62.5 is an older cable type but when looking at the detail sheets for each of the SFPs I see that both of these support a 62.5 or 50 micron core size.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 2960s Switch Stack IOS Upgrade?

Apr 18, 2012

I was just curious about something with upgrading a 2960s stack.
To copy the image to the switches in the stack I use: Switch# archive download-sw tftp://x.x.x.x/filename
Does this also set the image as the boot image or do I still need to issue the boot system flash command?
can I just issue this command on the master switch and reload and the new config will be pushed to the rest of the switches?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 2960s Stack Port Shutdown

May 6, 2013

I have a single 2960s without stack module. The stack port has a status of down, however I'd like to disable it so that it does not generate a false alarm in my NMS. The documentation states that there should be a command "switch 1 stack port 1 disable" but the switch (running 15.0(2)SE2) doesn't seem to  be available. Is this a dcumentation bug or is the command not there at all?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Failure On 2960s Stack IOS Upgrade

Nov 5, 2011

applied an iOS update to a stack via tftp.  I used the archive Download-sw tftp:// method.  I rebooted the stack after complete and it never came back up. I discovered the master switch upgraded but not the member.  The member was sitting there with all amber lights on and frozen after the iOS load.  The master wouldn't finish boot until I removed the member from the stack.  I had a version mismatch and they would not communicate.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 2960S How To Upgrade Stack / Then Reboot Members One By One

May 15, 2013

I have 2 Catalyst 2960S-switches configured in a stack. The uplink is configured as a cross-stack etherchannel. Now I want to upgrade the stack with a minimum of downtime for the connected hosts. The hosts are connected to the stack via cross-stack etherchannels. So my question is: How can I upgrade the stack and reboot the members with a minimum of downtime? If I use the archive download-sw command with the /reload-option, the stack is reloaded and the result will be downtime for the hosts while th stack is reloading. Is it possible to upgrade the stack and then reboot the members one by one in a controlled manner?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 2960S Replace Master Switch In Stack

Jun 4, 2012

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]

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750X - Adding Ports To Existing Port-channel

Jan 29, 2013

I need to tear down an existing port-channel on a 3750X running c3750e-universalk9-mz.150-1.SE3.bin. This port channel is currently down down. It has three ports in it that will be added one each to three existing port-channels, I am assuming as long as the "channel-group" command is exactly the same as it is on the three existing port-channels I should be ok just adding the new port. One point to note is that the three existing port-channels all have three ports so this will be adding the fourth port to each port-channel. I know after reading that it is a best practice for load balancing to use either 2, 4, or 8 ports for a port-channel. Also what is the command to see all ports that are in a port channel?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6500 - Adding Port Channels In Existing STP Topology

Apr 3, 2013

current topology is build from 4 6500 switches connected in a ring topology. Using Port channel (2x 10Gbit) links to connect left side top and bottom 6500's (DC1), 10 G bit link to connect right side 6500's (DC2) In between a 1 G bit link is used to connect top 6500's (DC1-DC2) and the same for bottom 6500's (DC1-DC2). 

Path costs are 5 and 6 so the T5/4 from bottom right is blocking. Bandwidth demands are increasing, so thinking about adding extra 1 G bit links to the existing ones and create ether channels. Path costs here are 4 and 5, so T5/4 from bottom right is still blocking, but when the bottom 2 G bit port-channel is loosing one 1 G bit link the path costs of both directions become equal. So I am worried that STP will not re converge and leave me with a congested 1 G bit link. I cannot test this setup in a lab, are there any options for STP to re-converge here?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Catalyst 2960 / Add New Stack To Existing Two Stacks

Mar 7, 2013

On first floor, I have two stack switches and each stack has got 4 switches. they all are working fine.Now the client would like to add one more stack on the 2nd floor. But the second floor switches are different when compared to the 1st floor switches.
can you have differnt IOS among different stacks. I knew in a stack we need all the switches should have same IOS version. But in between two stacks to communicate do we need same IOS or they can be on differnet IOS?
1st floor switches have 15.0 version and 2nd floor new switches has 12.2.58. Is this ok ?
1st floor switches are 3500 series ( Note: only one one Vlan 20 we are using on the both stack switches and we would like add same Vlan 20 on to the new stack)
2nd floor switches aew 2 catalyst 2960 switches.
Note: on the second floor switches one is 24 port switch and the other one is 48 port switch. so can i make them  as a stack?
We have already done cabling from 1st floor to second floor. So no problem with that at all.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Creating Stack Of 2960s From Single Live Switch

Sep 23, 2012

I have a live 28port Catalyst 2960S switch. By live I mean that there is an essential piece of equipment plugged into this switch that can suffer little to no downtime. Over the course of time the number of devices patched into this location has increased to exceed the 24 ports available and we have had to resort to adding unmanaged switches to fill the need. We have acquired an additional 2960 & stacking modules that I would like to stack together, keeping the existing switch as the master. It is my understanding that the stacking modules are hot-swappable and that this member switch can be added without bringing the master switch down, thus creating zero down time for the financial server that is connected.
The steps I believe that need to be followed are as such: write mem to existing switch and backup to our TFTP serverinstall the stack module in the existing (while powered up) and new (while powered down)place the 2 redundant FlexStack link cables on both switchesthen simply power the member switch on After boot the member switch will get it's OS and configuration from the master and I can begin moving CAT5 cables from the unmanaged switches to the stack.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Adding 3750 To Stack?

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 :: Adding A New 3750 To Stack

May 29, 2012

I had 2 3750 stacked and one of them decided to die (power supply) cisco replaced it and now i want to re-add that switch to stack. I have already upgraded my replacement switch to the same IOS version.I was reading that i can do it without powering down operational 3750 so the action plan so far is:
-power down NEW member
-connect stacking cable
-power up
as you can see my switch 2 is now a master and it still holds config of all Gi ports for switch 1. If i connect my NEW switch without any config (vlan.dat and startup-config) will my existing switch 2 copy all ports config to new switch ?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Adding A New DHCP Scope To 3750 Stack

Apr 2, 2012

The company I work for owns a remote manufacturing facility that houses a stack of five 3750 switches that function as the core switching system for the plant.  DHCP services are configured on the 3750 stack.
There are currently three VLANs configured, one for data and one for voice (144 and 244 respectively) and one for UCM servers (200), with corresponding subnets of /19, /19 and /24.
The current DHCP scope configurations are as follows:
ip dhcp pool Plant-44_DHCP

My question is will the addition of this scope in the manner presented cause any problems with PCs or IP phones outside the targeted recepents receiving the wrong IP information from this scope? 
I plan to identify the users that should be members of this VLAN 444 and change the switchport mode access configuration on the corresponding switch ports from VLAN 144 to VLAN 444.  The voice VLAN 244 will remain the same.
