Cisco Switching/Routing :: Replacing 3750 24 Port With 3750 48 Port?

May 21, 2012

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?

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.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Replacing WS-3750-48p With WS-C3750X-48PF-S?

Mar 10, 2013

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.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Replacing Two 3750 (stacked) With 3750X

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?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: VTP Traffic Not Seen On SPAN Port On 3750

Dec 12, 2011

Been dealing with a strange problem for several days now.  It started out with a problem that I thought was VTP related but ended up being something else.  I setup a span port on a 3750 that I am connected to that was mirroring the trunk connection coming into the switch.
Never saw an VTP traffic come across the connection but doing a sh vtp status indicated the traffic was arriving and getting processed.  When I found some debug commands (debug sw-lan vtp), I was also able to see the packets go between switches.  Seeing this issue concerns me that there is other traffic that isnt showing up during a span session.
I know that doing a span on a switch, especially using a trunk port as a source, isnt a good idea.  Since I didnt have a TAP at time, this was my only choice.  I have since borrowed a NetOptics TP-CU3 tap from a good friend and was able to confirm the VTP traffic was going across the trunk connection between switches.
All of my 3750's are running 12.2.55.SE.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750 Port-security Will Not Clear

Jun 5, 2012

We have several 3750 stacks across our campus that we are unable to completely clear port security on. We have mac address stick set up on all access ports. When we clear the sticky address on the port, the mac address is removed from the running config like normal, but we keep getting port-security voilations. If port security is taken off the port completely, i.e. no switchport port-security, traffic still doesn't pass the port. Even clear port security across the stack doesn't work. If we try to reload the stack, only the master reboots, and the other switches in the stack lose switch capabilities.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750 Port Forwarding Inbound

Dec 15, 2011

I have a non-cisco router with a public WAN address. This is conencted to a 3750 switch internally. The switch is the default gateway for all VLANs, and the gateway router has static routes back to the 3750. The Router provides NAT, no NAT is done on the switch.My requirement is to port forward port 29 000 so that I can access a server on VLAN4 via this port.

So, I have: Router: Port 29000 map to (Switch VLAN4 address)
The question is, how do I route port 29000 from the 3750 to the server on ? what exactly I should add in order to port forward port 29000 incoming form my router, to my server on

Cisco Switching/Routing :: How To Monitor 3750 Stacking Port In LMS

May 24, 2012

I would like to ask about 3750 stacking and some Cat6 stuff...
1) How do we monitor 3750 stacking port in LMS?
2) Let say if I stack 3 switches, middle switch should be Master. Uplink should be at Top and Bottom. Is best practice?
3) Can we mixed 3750G and 3750X and what is result internal BW - fallback to 32Gps?
4) is there any Qos difference between WS-X6816-10G-2T and WS-X6816-10G-2TXL?
5) is there any Qos difference between MSFC5 PFC4 and MSFC5 PFC4XL?
6) What is main difference between PFC4 and PFC4XL in Sup2T?
7) Pls share more about Central and Distributed Switching in Sup2T and which card support Distributed DFCXL?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Random Port Disconnect 3750

Apr 24, 2012

We have computers that are connected to a switch stack of 3 - 3750 switches.  Randomly, we experience pcs that fail to communicate on the network. At first thought I figured the port went into err-disabled state, however the port shows up fine on the switch and moving the pc to another port on the same switch in the stack fails to fix the problem.  To add to the confusion, if I immediately connect a different machine into the problematic port the newly connected machine has no issue and operates normally.  Connecting back the first machine still results in no connectivity. 
The only way to gain back network connectivity is to move the pc to a different switch in the stack.  shut/no shut doesn't work.The IOS the stack is running is 12.2 and the switch ports are configured using cisco port macros.
here is how all the ports are configured.
switchport mode access
switchport port-security
switchport port-security aging time 2
switchport port-security violation restrict
switchport port-security aging type inactivity
macro description cisco-desktop
spanning-tree portfast
spanning-tree bpduguard enable

Cisco Switching/Routing :: SPAN Port Configuration On 3750?

May 23, 2012

I'm trying to configure a mirror port on a 3750. This configuration needs to replicate data from local ports, but I need that also act as a regular access port.
With the initial configuration, SPAN port, there is no problem, all the data of the configurated ports is replicating in the configurated port. On the port configurated as mirror there is a PC connected for audio recording. When the port is not operating as SPAN there is communications without problem over the LAN. But when I configure the port as SPAN, communication is interrupted.
Here is the actual configuration:
SWITCH1-PISO7#sh monitor session 1
Session 1
Type                   : Local Session

I set up a port-channel trunk between a acess switch 3750 ( int gi2/0/1 and gi2/0/2) and Core 6509( int gi7/11 and gi7/12).
On the both the 3750& 6509 I configured:
interface Port-channel15
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport trunk allowed vlan 100,103

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750 / Replacing Failed Member In Stackwise?

Dec 18, 2012

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?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Min-Link Configuration On 3750-X Port-channel

Feb 27, 2013

I am building a new network and intended on using the min-link feature on my port-channels between a 3750-X series switch and Nexus 4k.

However reading further into this it seems this feature is only supported on higher end models. I cannot find any reference to the min-links feature in the 3750-X configuration guide. Is this an available feature?

The 3750-X model is WS-C3750X-24T-L running IOS 12.2(55)SE3 IP Services

My thoughts is that the is only an LACP supported feature so I may not see the command until I have entered an LACP specific command on the port-channel but unfortunately I do not have a 3750X to verify this on at present.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: QoS 3750 Switch Port Trust Without Resetting

Oct 7, 2012

We have QoS configured throughout the company, but the standard config we have applied across the 3750 switches only includes the below: We have IP phones (not cisco) attached that are marking with EF, and the PC is an untrusted end device (so needs to be by default marked as zero).Is the above enough to trust VOIP DSCP EF without resetting it to DSCP 0, or do I also need to add a trust line (i.e.: mls qos trust dscp)?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Port Goes Into Error Disable State 3750

We have a number of 3750 stacks used as access layer switches connecting Siemens VOIP phones and then a PC that connects to the phone.
For example if I plug PC A to the phone that connects to port 13 I pick up an IP addressand all works as predicted now if I plug in PC A to any other VOIP phone that connect to another port on the same switch it goes in error disable state ITs like the switch is holding my PC mac address and locks it down with the port which in my case is Gi2/0/13.

switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,172

i was wondering if the "srr-queue bandwidth limit 10" command would work to limit the output from this interface to be 10 % of the port bandwidth and then the same command could be done on the other side.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750 - How To Isolate Fiber Port Traffic

Jun 18, 2012

We would like to setup a link to our DR site that is separate from our main network traffic.  This link will be used by an EMC VNX SAN for replication traffic.  The SAN will be plugged into a fiber port on a 3750 switch and going out from the same switch (going in as multimode, going out as single mode) into a patch panel that runs over to the DR site (about a mile away).  At the DR site it will go from the fiber panel into another 3750 switch which ends up going back out of that switch into our DR SAN.
I'm wondering what the best way would be to configure the fiber ports to accomplish this.  I'm affraid that the replication traffic will find it's way over through another route and congest our main network unless configured appropriately.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 2960 / 3750 - Port Disables Every 10 Minutes

Aug 15, 2012

I am experiencing the same problem described in this post {URL}. I have seen this happen on different networks, with different equipment attached. It happens on both 2960 and 3750 switches. Basically the connection drops, and we see in the web interface "Port is Disabled". This appears to happen every 10 minutes.
On the CLI, the status shows as connected.
Port Name      Status       V lan       Duplex  Speed Type
Fa0/38             connected     1          a-full  a-100 10/100BaseTX
I have ran cable diagnostics while the drop out is occurring.
Interface Speed Local pair Pair length        Remote pair Pair status
--------- ----- ---------- ----------------- ----------- -------------------
Fa0/38    100M  Pair A     28   +/- 15 meters Pair B      Normal
During the outage, I see the duplex fluctuate between full and half. The outage occurs for approx 90 seconds. If I fix the duplex and speed at both ends, the outage reduces to around 30 seconds. If I apply spanning-tree port fast the outage reduces further to around 10 seconds. Before I change any configuration on the port, the logs show the interface going down
Aug 16 13:06:51.875: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface FastEthernet0/38, changed state to down
Aug 16 13:06:52.874: %LINK-3-UPDOWN: Interface FastEthernet0/38, changed state to down
However, once I apply the configuration nothing is logged. However we can still see the connection is disappearing for around 10 seconds. I suspect the issue wasn't resolved for the person reporting the problem in the link above, but because the outage is minimized, and not being logged it is going unnoticed.

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:
ip source-route
ip cef
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?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 3750 - Configuring Multiple VLANs For Single Port

Apr 11, 2012

I would like to configure a 3750 switch port to be able to use two vlans. I know you can do this with a voice and data vlan, but what about two data vlans ? Say I have two devices, one on a 10 subnet and the other on a 172 subnet, but i only have one wall jack for both devices to plug into. So I use a mini switch to connect both devices and connect the switch to the wall jack; and of course this all leads back to one switch port. When I go to enter the switchport access vlan 172 cmd, how would I also make it so the device on the 10 subnet could route out ?
