Cisco Switching/Routing :: Catalyst 3750 Series Stack IOS Upgrade?

Oct 8, 2012

I have Cisco Catalyst Stack structure that  consist of;
3750G-48TS-S (IPBASE Image)
3750G-48TS-S (IPBASE Image)
3750G-48TS-S (IPBASE Image)
I want to upgrade their IOSs to k9 images.
I can not dowload Universal Image file from Cisco website because of the expired service contract.  I have IPBASE IOS files for all switches,
Can it be a problem to upgrade master switch IOS from Universal to IPBASE image?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Rolling Stack Upgrade Of Catalyst 3750

Apr 1, 2013

I want to run rolling-stack upgrades on several stacks containing Catalyst 3750X-switches. I have done as follows: Configured the redundant uplinks as active and stand-by.Started to upgrade by using archive download-sw /rolling-stack-upgrade /overwrite /reload The upgrade starts as expected BUT switch number 2 in the stack is reloaded BEFORE switch 1 is finnished, the result is of course downtime for the stack. The documentation says something about the command "boot time", but what is this command doing? The default seems to be 7 minutes, it this parameter the time the upgrade-process waits before booting the next switch in the stack? I would expect that switch number 2 is reloaded when switch 1 is up again after reload, and not after an absolute number of minutes, is the rolling-stack-upgrade not working this way ?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Catalyst 3750 And 3750X Together In One Stack?

Nov 20, 2011

if I read the Datasheet of Catalyst 3750X-Series-Switches it is possible to connect a new X-Switch to an existing and old Catalyst 3750-Series Stack.What kind of requirements are needed? Only same IOS-Version in the hole Stack and if possible same Feature-Set? .... like in a normal NOT mixed Stack?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750 Stack Switches Compared To 4500 Series

Dec 30, 2011

I'm thinking about using a 3750 stacking around 4 or 5 switches intead of using one 4500 series switch.
1-My first argument was concerning the budget (one 4500 instead of four or five 3750 in stack mode) ---- Here i think 4 or 5 stacked 3750 is cheap than one 4500
2- My second argument was about harware redundancing that i don't have with one 4500 and that i have with stack mode ----Here i have more hardware redundancing with 3750
3- The bug that we notice today in 2960 and 3750 and not in 4500
4- Simple to manage a 4500 compare to 3750 stack design
5- I was looking also for the one with best backplane ----Here i didn't have any infos concerning the best backplane between 4 or 5 stack 3750 and a 4500.
6- I'm also looking for power redundancing.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Catalyst 3750 Switch Reboots Because Of Stack Failure

May 14, 2008

The Catalyst 3750 switch reboots, and the " Reloading because of stack merge or communication failure" error message appears.

I saw this issue at "Cisco wiki" but the resolution in that page is just "Open a case with TAC". Because of  the reasion is H/W Problem.

Is The resolution only one ? anything else? The 3750 does not use Stack.It is just stand alone. So i think it has other resolution as "disabling Stack" or another one. How about my opinion ? Is the Resolution only "Open a Case with TAC"

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750 Stack Switches IOS Upgrade?

Nov 13, 2012

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;
Switch   Ports  Model              SW Version              SW Image
------   -----  -----              ----------              ----------
     1   28     WS-C3750G-24PS     12.2(35)SE5             C3750-IPSERVICESK9-M
*    2   28     WS-C3750G-24PS     12.2(35)SE5             C3750-IPSERVICESK9-M
     3   52     WS-C3750G-48PS     12.2(35)SE5             C3750-IPSERVICESK9-M
     4   30     WS-C3750E-24PD     12.2(35)SE5             C3750E-UNIVERSAL-M
     5   30     WS-C3750E-24PD     12.2(35)SE5             C3750E-UNIVERSAL-M
which image file i should use as they all have different model numbers and Cisco provides different image files for each model.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750 - Firmware Upgrade Of Switch Stack Fails

May 9, 2012

I have a stack of 4 Cisco Switch 3750 (1 x WS-C3750G-24T, 2 x  WS-C3750-48P and 1 x WS-C3750V2-48PS) and I want to do an firmware upgrade of this stack. Actually, all the 4 switches are at the firmware version 12.2(50) SE1 "IPBase" and I want to upgrade them to 12.2(55)SE5 IPBase. According to the release notes, all the switches in my stack are supported.
To upgrade the firmware, I use the command "archive download-sw /imageonly /overwrite tftp://IP_Address/c3750-ipbaselmk9-tar.122-55.SE5.tar" The firmware gets uploaded correctly but then I get the error message "There is insufficient space in flash: to install the required image. Clean up some old images, and try again."
When I do a "show flash", I see that the switch has 5650944 bytes free of 15998976 bytes.
How can i upgrade my switches? Is there an error in my command which I use? Do I need to add an other option?
The problem is, the switches are located in a branch office and there is no direct access to them. Everything must be done remotely.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Catalyst 3750-X Roll Staking Upgrade

Nov 13, 2011

I have read that the 3750-X supports upgrading with minimal traffic lost with RSU feature, on the configuration guide the scnario is with the end user connected to the 3750-X stack with LACP and the uplinks to the network running STP, one uplink is forwarding and the other is blocked. I have the same scenario but for the network uplink i also have LACP. When i tried to configured the RU stanby one of the uplink LACP the switch gives an error.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: How To Stack Catalyst 2960

Dec 1, 2012

How would I go about stacking 4 Cisco Catalyst 2960-48PST-L switches? The one switch needs to accept a fiber connection from a distribution switch.  Do I have to buy flexstack module and cables? If so where does the module go on the switch? If this switch cannot do this set up, any other switch I should look at.

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 :: Adding 3750 To Stack?

Dec 6, 2011

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.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750 Stack Port

May 19, 2013

I have a stack of 4 3750 Switches.
1. WS-C3750G-12S
2. WS-C3750G-12S
3. WS-C3750X-48P
4. WS-C3750X-48P
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.
