I have 2 Catalyst 2960S (24 ports and 48 ports). Can I stack them using the Uplink connection instead of the stack modules. I know Stack module is the best option but it is kind of expensives (half price of the 24 ports switch) and I only need to stack no more then 2 switches.
On occasion employees are downloading large files for business purposes, at very fast speeds. This has the potential to overwhelming our Internet circuits which causes our Customers problems accessing our Web Hosting services.
Our network is comprised mostly of 2960S switches for the employees. Webservers are connected to other 2960(nonS) switches and directly into the 6509 VSS.
Customer’s traffic comes in through one pair of ASA’s. Employee’s traffic is handled by another pair of ASA’s.
Employee traffic flows from the 2960’s, past an L3 SVI on the 6509, then through the Employee ASA’s, then to the ASR’s, then out to the ISP#1 or ISP#2
Web Server traffic flows from the 2960’s or 6509, to the Customer ASA, then to the ASR’s then out to ISP#1 or ISP#2. Web server traffic does not flow through an L3 SVI.
The goal is to allow employees the ability to have the most bandwidth they can, however customer traffic always has to be preferred in the event of a ISP circuit approaching its limit.
Im trying to Connect a 2960-S Catalyst Switch to a 3560 Catalyst Switch. It worth pointing out im newish to switching although i know some commands and what they do This is my first time connecting 2 switches together.
They are connected via a crossover cable and have green lights flashing on the connected ports When i run "show CDP neighbours it sees the new switch Unable to ping new switch...just timesout Here is the the interface on the 3650
GigabitEthernet0/40 is up, line protocol is up (connected) Hardware is Gigabit Ethernet, address is 001b.532f.8428 (bia 001b.532f.8428) Description: Uplink to Switch 2 MTU 1500 bytes, BW 100000 Kbit, DLY 100 usec, [Code]....
I'm trying to get some clarity on power stacking 3750X switches. I have a new stack of 6 switches. I know I can only have 4 in a power stack and all 6 in the data stack with a max of 8. I'm trying to find the proper way to connect the power stack cables for the 4 switch power stack.
We purchased a number of 3750X 48 and 24 port switches for the College Campus. Am finally getting around to getting them inserted on the network. Working with a WS-3750X-48PF-S and a WS-3750X-24P-L. Have them stacked with the 10Gb uplink on the 48 port switch. Have not been having fun.In the boot sequence, the switches recognize they are stacked, but as soon as they finish boot, I get the message on the 48 port switch: “Stack Port 1 Switch 1 has changed to state down.” Then “Stack Port 2 Switch1 has changed to state down.” Am noticing that I have a message preceding that: “Major version mismatch with stack neighbor.”The 48 port is running c3750e-universalk9-mz.150-1.SE3, HBOOT 12.2(53r)SE2.The 24 port is running c3750e-unversalk9-mz.122-55.SE3, HBOOT 12.2(53r)SE2Most of our 3750X and older switches are running 122-55 or 122.58 code. IP base or Universal. There is speculation that the problem is the 24 Port is Lan base, as the part number might indicate. (WS-C3750X-24-P-L.... I think that is the part number) and the 48 is IP base. Both switches are Universal, and my understanding is that they don't care about LAN or IP Base until you enable a function that falls in the IP Base domain. Then I have to call Cisco Licensing.For these switches, LAN Base is fine, based on the boot message, I feel the real problem is 122-55 versus 150-1 in the stack. So.. the question is: Do I downgrade the 48 port to match what we have in our environment, and what is on the 24 port switch. Or... Upgrade the 24 port switch to match the 48 port switch and have an installation that is not consistent with our environment? I do have two more edge closets to install with this purchase of 3750X 48 port switches.
In my office we bought 7 cisco 3750X - 48PS switches. We configured Data Stacking between those switches. We also want to configure Power Stacking between those 7 devices.
I found in the Data Sheet that we can only configure 4 devices in power stacking at a time. If it is like that how to configure the rest of 3 devices. Need configuring power stacking between those devices in a better way..
power stack cable part no we have is CAB-SPWR-30CM
What are the options avilable to add a cat3560 g switch to a stack of 3750x switches.?is there a connector avilable ?or is it possible to trunk via fiber ? cat 3560 has 4 sfps and 224 10/100/1000 ports with poe. cat 3750 stack has a 10 gb up link . What are the possible options?
I have a couple of WS-C3750X-48T-L and a couple of WS-C3750X-12S-S, I want to stack all four of them together into a single stack. WS- C3750X-12S-S are running c3750e-universalk9-mz.122-58.SE2 whereas WS-C3750X-48T-L are running c3750e-universalk9-mz.122-55.SE3.I have got a couple of queries as under:What are the options to achieve putting all these 4 switches into a single stack? Can the LAN Base switches upgraded to IP Base?
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 ?
I have 2 PE routers connected to each other via 2960S and 3750 (non-metro) switches:
[PE1] -- [2960S] --  -- [2960S] -- [PE2]
I will be sending voice and data traffic between the two and my voice traffic will be marked DSCP EF & EXP 5.
Since the 2960's and 3750's can't match on the EXP bits, I am wondering if the "mls qos trust dscp" command still works. Is the 2960/3750 able to match on DSCP even though there's an MPLS header on top of the IP packet?
I'd like to avoid having to tag my VLAN traffic on the PE and rely on COS to achieve QoS in this case.
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?
How to stack a set of these switches with the copper 5G SFP on these switches. We currently have 4 switches stacked with Cat5e jumpers between S1&S2. We want to stop using this stacking method and go to the SFP. What is the best way to do this. Live would be preferable but whatever is the safest method is the way we will proceeed. Any goth'ca's in this process?
We had a SGE-2010, just purchased 2 (two) SGE-2010P. I want to stack the switches (all 3) (unless there is a better way). Not sure what is needed hardware wise, and how to physically wire the switches. Had switches years ago (diff brand) that used a special cable that connected the switches. It seems that is not the case here. I have not used fiber in networking before so I am new to that part, I’m willing to learn, just need pointed in the right direction.Can all three switches be stacked, (1) SGE-2010 & (2) SGE-2010P? I THINK I need to use the GBIC port 4 to stack, I understand 1 port is enough if two switches are used, but what about three or more switches.What are the other GBIC ports used for? Will I be better off (can I ) use the GBIC ports LAG (2 ports) to the other switches? Or would regular ports work just as well?
We have three Cisco 3750 - 48port POE -LAN switches and i am trying to see if there are any issues when we stack POE and Non-POE type of switches.Aslo looking for information on the advanatage and disadvantage the stacking can provide on a Cisco 3750 48port.
I have one 3750X with C3KX-NM-10GT, I need to interconnect using stackwise to 3750G-24TS. The 3750X needs IOS 15.0(1) to use C3KX-NM-10GT, and the latest IOS for 3750G-24TS is 12.2.55. How can I interconnect them using diferent IOS?
We currently have a stack of 3750G switches that are running 12.2(46)SE C3750-ADVIPSERVICESK9-M
Our 3750X is currently running 15.0(2)SE C3750E-UNIVERSALK9-M and I believe we were told you can't stack with a Universal IOS image. We have the universal on there because we have some 10GB fiber connections on it that Cisco told us wouldn't work otherwise.
I realize that the switch versions need to match, but the question is, which version should we work off to have use of the 10GB SFP card?
I am having troubles to get 2 C3750-X switches WS-C3750-X-48P-L) to stack. They are both running iOS 15.0(2)-UNIVERSALK9, and are licensed for IP Base.
If I connect stack port 1 of switch 1 to stack port 2 of switch 1, and stack port 1 of switch 2to stack port 2 of switch 2 I get the following:
WS-C3750-X_STACK1_SW1>show switch stack-ports summary Switch#/ Stack Neighbor Cable Link Link Sync # InPort# Port Length OK Active OK Changes Loopback Status
I have tried restarting (powering off for about 1 min and turning back on) simultaneously, and powering off switch 1 for 1 min and switch 2 for 2 min. I have also tried both enabling the stack ports, and disabling followed by enabling.
Im going to be ordering a new 3560X L3 switch (ws-3560x-48pf-s). We currently have a 3560 V2 switch and I've read it supports stacking, but looking at the back I just see a console port. Is there an extra card I have to get for this 3560V2 to make it stakable with the 3560X?
I am trying to resolve a situation where we need to send multiple (2 atleast) multicast feeds from a source to our multilayer switch (3560x).
The problem with the source is that it can only send a feed to a single switch at a given time. It can not send 2 (identical) feeds to two 3560x devices (on 2 different subnets/vlans). I was wondering if i could make the two 3560x devices appear as 1 device (using virtual chassis system or a similar feature). I am running ip services IOS feature set (c3560e-universalk9-mz.122-58.SE2.bin).
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?
I plan to build improved redundancy in to my LAN by stacking two 3750s and teaming pairs of NICs on my Dell PowerEdge servers, with each cable of the pair going to a different switch.In my mind this provides redundancy for the NICs and the switches. Does this configuration will work, and also what type of teaming is supported, as I was planning to have one NIC active and one standby, but can I run this configuration with both NICs in the team as active with load balancing?
Suppose I have a 3 member stack of 3750x switches. Members a, b and c.I have all 3 members stacked with all 3 *data* stacking cables in a daisy-chain topology. The 50 cm data stacking cable from switch a (on the very top) to switch c (on the very bottom) just barely reached.Of course, that means the 30 cm *power* stacking cable didn't reach between a & c. Right now, the power stacking cable goes from a to b, and then another cable from b to c. Leaving me with a useless extra 30 cm power stacking cable.
My question is, can switch "a" receive power from switch "c" through switch "b"? Is this just a big electrical "bus"? What if the power supply in switch "b" is removed?Just wondering if there is a need for me to get a longer power stacking cable (one of the 150 cm power stacking cables).
convergence time in case of stack master will be switched over to other switch.In my understating, when the stack master will be switched over to other switch based on election algorithm, convergence time will be less than 10 second.
I tried to calculate concersion time during fail over testing but convergence time was 21 second. I think it is too long...
・I configured Rapid Spanning tree protocol between L3 and L3. (But RSTP's convergence time is 2~3 second..)
