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
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 ?
I have two 3750s stacked and one 3750 standalone all in one data closet. The both have the same versions. I want to combine them to make one 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.
We have a WS-C3750G-24PS switch running 12.2(50)SE , C3750-IPBASEK9-M in production & stand alone and we want to ask a new Cisco WS-C3750-24P running 12.2(55)SE3 , C3750-IPBASEK9-M into the stack with the 1st one.
Just want to know if it is possible and are there any problems with the IOS being different version.
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 10.44.32.0 /19, 10.44.0.0 /19 and 10.44.100.0 /24.
The current DHCP scope configurations are as follows:
ip dhcp pool Plant-44_DHCP network 10.44.32.0 255.255.224.0 default-router 10.44.33.254
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.
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?
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.
I have a Catalyst 3750 I want to add to an existing stack (same models) through the stackwise port We use some complex QoS and other features on our network, and I'm not sure how much configuration I need to do on the new switch before adding it to the stack. Since this is going into an existing setup?
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?
Our customer has a stack of 6 3750G switches. They want to add another switch to the stack. I tried to quote another G, but I got a warning that the G series is EOS January 30,2013. Can I add a 3750X to the stack? I know that no matter what switch I get, I will have to upgrade the IOS in the stack, as the stack is running 12.2(25)SEE2.
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?
I am having an issue with adding a c3750x switch to an existing switch stack Currently there is 2 x WS-C3750X-48P and I am trying to add another WS-C3750X-48P to this switch I have cabled the switch to the stack using the stack cables and added the command to provision the switch on the exisitng stack. However when I turn the switch on it just goes on its own stack.
I noticed the new switch had a later version of IOS so have downgraded this to the same version as the other switches but still no joy Here is the sh ver from the exisitng stack

I currently have Cisco 3750G which is currently live and active and fully populated and only have remote access.
I have an additional same switch which I would like to stack. My initial plans were to have 2 GIbit etherchannels, but I came across the option to Stacks both switch with each other.
When I do a show switch on the live switch its set as a Member: [code]
I would like to add the new switch to the stack without losing the config for the switch which is live. I understand that the highest priority of the switches becomes the Master but as the live switch is Priority 1, would chancing this affect the switches config, or would it lose connection at all?
Also when I plug in the new switch and it reboot how do I ensure it becomes the slave without rebooting the live switch?The cables on the switch do they have to go to port1 on the live switch and port 1 on the new switch or can they be port 1 and port 2?
The stack cable connected to Switch 1 Port 1 and Switch 4 Port 2 will not come back online. The logs show that there was a Stack line change. I have replaced the 1 meter Stack cable from Switch 1 to Switch 4 three times and it still does not come back online. This is the part that is interesting.. I have disconnected Port 1 Switch 4 and connected it to Port 2 Switch 4 and then Switch 4 came back online. This made me think Port 2 on Switch 4 was working correctly. Then I disconnected Port 2 Switch 1 and connected it to Port 1 Switch 1 and then Switch 1 came back online.
i have two cisco 3750 in stack firts, master switch have all swports busy second have only 5 how can i see cpu utilizations of the second switch, and its reasonable to move somme devices from first switch to second for deacreases of cpu and memory utilisatio ns of the master? the stack tehnologies use both cpu as one? or its only for simple management ?
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...
I have been given 2 3750 switches and need to put a config onto it wuld is for 2 3750's in a stack, how should I put this on the 2 switches? Is it bested to install it onto 1 switch first then physically attach the 2nd after?
I'm setting up a web cache using the wccp protocol on a Catalyst 3750 stack.
Probably missing something real simple here but when I from the global configuration mode are trying to enter the ip wccp command it just says "invalid input" from wccp. There is no such command.. should be supported on my device from IOS 12.2(37)
We have two 6k5 configured as vss and it is working fine. For each floor we have a 3750 stack. In each 3750 stack we have 4 switches. From the first 3750 we have a fiber link to the first 6k5 and from the fourth switch we have another fiber link to the other 6k5 switch, for each floor/3750 stack, both configured as etherchannel. We installled each 3750 stack/floor in different maintenance windows; in all these installations we have problems configuring the etherchannel. After we configure the etherchannel on 3750 stack and in the vss, the etherchannel does not go up/up. We see the etherchannel up/down; after a lot off work, try and error, configuring shut/ no shut, adding and excluding links from the etherchannel; in any aleatory moment the etherchannel goes up/up and works fine. Is there any bug related with these IOS versions, or is there any right procedure to configure etherchannel from vss to 3750 stack?
I currently have 5 3750s connected via Stackwise. This stack is connected back to my core (6509s) via fiber (1Gig to Core1 & 1Gig to Core2). I want to move the 5th 3750 to another closet due to an addition of a new patch panel. Due to max length of 10 ft. for stackwise, my plan is to connect this 5th switch back to the stack using trunked fiber ports, with them being an etherchannel (2Gig). Also plan to use single fiber port form 2 different switches in the stack to provide some redundancy for the 5th switch. Should I be alert of any issues with this connection design? Do I need to properly remove the 5th switch from the stack using, no sw 5 provison sw-model or can I just disconnect stackwise and connect back with fiber?
We had an "Event" on our process network at the mill yesterday. I connected a new WS-C3560V2-48TS-S to our network and we lost communications with all of the other switches.
The core is a stack of 3 WS-C3750 switches, one is a -24TS-1U and the other two are -12S-S. These connect to 10 WS-C3560G-24TS and 5 Rockwell Stratix 8000 (IE3000) over fiber. I am planning on replaceing two 24 port switches with the new 48 port. I had the switch configured and running at my work bench. It was connected to the network with one sfp module and ran all weekend with no issues. Yesterday afternoon I took it to the network cabinet and installed it. I powered it up and connected two sfp modules to the fiber patch panel and made the connection at the core stack.
Everything looked OK. I had communication link lights working on everything. Within minutes, we lost communication with every switch connected to the core stack. I shut down the new 48 port switch and the network slowly came back up.
The new 48 port is configured with Flex Links for the fiber redundancy protocol and was connected to each of the 3750G-12S-S stack members.
I though it might have been a power issue but the stack is UPS protected and shows it has been up for over 10 weeks. I'm not even sure "Crash" is the best decription for what happened. The new switch has a high enough IP address that it would not take over as a IGMP Querier.
I've a situation where I need to add a new 3750x to a existing stack of 3750. [code] When I tried to stack them together, I get a version mismatch error. Is this because of the difference in SW Image? What are my options next ? My ultimate goal is to make the new switch stack correctly with the exisitng switches.
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 .
I am replacing our 2 3750s which are in a stack and are running in VTP server mode for the domain with 2 new 3750Gs. There are 4 trunks to other switches which bare in client mode and 2 trunks to 2 ASAs which are in active/standby mode (one in each switch). Anyway what will happen to the VTP clients when I replace the stack as the revision number will be 1 on the server? The clients will ignore any VTP updates from the server ?
