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 a stack with a lot of stack-port changes, but on all the ports, how can I determine the faulty switch in the stack, cables are already verified. We did also a restart of the whole stack power off/on

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?
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.
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?
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 ?
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 ?
We have a stack of 3 cisco swithes 3750s WS-C3750G-24TS 12.2(25)SEB4 .We plan to recover a switch from the stack as it is not needed any more The switch we plan to recover is the existing Master.If we change the priority (switch 1 priority) and make another switch the master using command line will we have any loss of connectivity to the servers conecting to the stack ?
Looking for feedback from other organizations that have large 3750 stacks. I've got one stack of (8) 3750's composed of (6) 3750G's and (2) plain 3750's. This particular stack is usually unresponsive to SNMP queries and often fails to write config when we make changes. After a couple tries it will finally go. Part of my probably here is likely the plain 3750's that always boot faster and come up as the master. I should manually set the master to one of the G's. What I'm wondering is who else has 7-9 3750's stacked and are they performing well for SNMP, telnet, etc? I've got another newer stack of 7 3750E's that I need to add one more switch to. Need to decide if I want extended downtime to break the stack up or just add the 3750X to make member 8 and hope it performs well. I have 50+ 3750 stacks working great on our campus.
Now I'm have IOS ver. 12.2(55)SE but from time to time I'm experiencing strange system freezing. It means that all systems connected to the stack are working very, very slow. It hapens ones, sometimes twice a month and takes 5 minutes. I didn't find anything strange in logs (neither on switch nor router). I would like to install other IOS version. Could you recomend me the most stable version for this stack (built from these different models) ?And the secound question: - Is it possible to copy SE1 manualy to every switch and reload one by one manualy. Will they join the stack and work fine after reload or maybe there will be a IOS mismatch ?
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?
Every link and guide i see about stacking two 3750 switch , the port 1 is connected to port 2 on the other switch and vice versa
i mean you can connect port 1 to port 1 on the other and connect their port 2 to each other
1- is it any benefit in the cross connection ? 2- do i encounter any problem if i stack a 24ts with a 48ts or a 12s-s (all are 3750) 3-i stacked two switches with each other and the ports became 1/0/* and 2/0/* and then i removed stack but on second switch the ports are still 2/0* !! when there is only one switch the interfaces should be 1/0/*
i have just set up a monitor session with a 3750 stack .Simple enough task you would think.But i only seem to be seeing broadcast packets !!Now there is definitely unicast traffic being used on the host i am monitoring.I have done the basic commands
We are configuring a new EMC VNX, and plan to use Ether channel with our 3750x stack. We would like to configure it for both additional bandwidth and for redundancy. What is the best configuration to use? Should we trunk the channel or use switch port mode access, and use channel-group on or protocol LACP (which state active or passive)?
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;
