Cisco Switching/Routing :: WS-C3750X-12S-S Options To Achieve Putting All 4 Switches Into Single Stack
Feb 12, 2012
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?
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?
Any issues are reported while configuring power stack ? We did several times with 12.2.58SE1 and SE2, sometimes the power stack is created automatically, sometimes needs to be configured manually. Looks like the behavior is not the same. Maybe it depends on the number/type of switches and number/type of power supplies.
Does the color strips on C3750X stack power cables mean anything, I mean the green and yellow ones. On all Cisco pictures the green one seems to be plugged in the upper ports. I asked local Cisco representative, but he seems not to be sure. We tried to try different scenarios, and it looks like it does not matter what cable end we use. We do not have any external power supply, only interconnecting C3750Xs.
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 have two WS-C3750X-48T-S which is "IP BASE" licensed, which are connected as stack.I need to use Policy Based Routing (PBR) to direct Vlans to two different gateways, and command "ip policy route-map" which is supported only in C3750-IPSERVICES license.Do I need upgrade only master switch with Cisco IOS IP Services - product upgrade licenseMfg. Part#: L-C3750X-48-S-E, or both switches need to be upgraded?
Cisco let us try a CISCO C3750X- 24T-S Stack (2 switches) ->> IpBase Sofware licence We've 2 Hyper-v 2008 R2 and one SAN Netapp FAS2040 connected via Iscsi.All was working well with this stacks.Hyper-V see Nas Iscsi interface without problem. Even with basic stack config (no Vlan, ect...).Then, after this test period, we bought a C3750X-24T-L stack (2 switches) to replace the stack lent by Cisco.This one is LanBase Software.
With this stack, hyper-v work very bad ! We've got a lot of Iscsi error in the eventvwr.I can't access luns.So, is there a difference between LanBase and IpBase for a iscsi use ?I put the 24T-S config on the 24T-L switch without pb. So config is the same on both stacks...Also i've got a "TestPortAsicLoopback" = "Failed" on the new stack...I've tried with other stack cables. Not better.
Symptoms: The switch hangs - after a hard reboot and after two hours switch No. 2 flew out from the stack. After the reboot, everything returned to normal and now when a few days passed switch works without problems. Devices: WS-C3750X-24T-S
I have a 3750X 24 port switch (with NM-1G network module) running IOS 15.0(1). Is there any benefit or reason to plug in the included Stack Wise cable and loop it back to itself in a single switch installation?
I don't see any recommendation in the documentation. The data sheet indicates a single switch is a non-blocking device so I'd think there's no bandwidth advantage like there is when connecting an actual multi-switch stack and needing to close the loop for the full 32 Gbps stack bandwidth.
We have a new backbone in our LAN with two C3750X-24S 15.0(1)SE3. Since we change the model of our equipment we can't update NTP on this two switches.We try to update NTP with two firewall Juniper SSG-140 in version 6.3.0r12.0. The two switchs never arive to associate with firewall (we try with the comme ntp server and ntp peer)
So we configure ntp server on our distribution servers switchs (one 4900 12.2(54)SG and one stack of 3750G and 3750E 12.2(50)SE5). They have no problem to update NTP on the firewal.So we change our configuration ntp server on the backbone and we try to update it with the distributions servers switchs. With the command ntp server it doesn't work. With the commande ntp peer it works but not everytime. The core switchs are in "synchronized" state then "unsynchronized" then "synchronized" etc...When they are in "unsynchronized" state there is "x falseticker" raison behind the IP of the ntp peer.
I have a live 28port Catalyst 2960S switch. By live I mean that there is an essential piece of equipment plugged into this switch that can suffer little to no downtime. Over the course of time the number of devices patched into this location has increased to exceed the 24 ports available and we have had to resort to adding unmanaged switches to fill the need. We have acquired an additional 2960 & stacking modules that I would like to stack together, keeping the existing switch as the master. It is my understanding that the stacking modules are hot-swappable and that this member switch can be added without bringing the master switch down, thus creating zero down time for the financial server that is connected.
The steps I believe that need to be followed are as such: write mem to existing switch and backup to our TFTP serverinstall the stack module in the existing (while powered up) and new (while powered down)place the 2 redundant FlexStack link cables on both switchesthen simply power the member switch on After boot the member switch will get it's OS and configuration from the master and I can begin moving CAT5 cables from the unmanaged switches to the stack.
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.
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.
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;
We have several stacks of 3750 switches where this problem is occurring. All of the switches are running IOS version 12.2(50)SE3. (Yes, I know it's old.)
We're seeing inconsistency in how the stack reports members when issuing the following commands:
sow switch show version show inventory
Not all members are showing up in the output of the "show version" and "show inventory" commands. For example:
HUNTI-WV-WDAC03#sh switch H/W Current Switch# Role Mac Address Priority Version State ---------------------------------------------------------- 1 Member 108c.cff2.ea00 15 0 Ready 2 Member 8cb6.4f0a.a600 1 0 Ready *3 Master 8cb6.4f0a.9c00 1 0 Ready (all three switches in stack are displayed)(code)
I am wanting to etherchannel from a 3750 stack to core Layer 3 switches (also 3750) with a cable going to each core switch, I have put both core switches and the stack under a 28bit subnet mask, but I dont seem to be load balancing across both links.
I have 3 3750 staking switch with the following configuration:
H/W Current Switch# Role Mac Address Priority Version State ---------------------------------------------------------- 1 Member 442b.0350.9400 1 1 Ready 2 Member 442b.0357.8780 2 1 Ready 3 Master 442b.036f.a800 3 1 Ready
The new switch is installed to be wired to the master switch. the swtich 3 (* 3 Master Ready 442b.036f.a800)my question is: if you disconnect the wiring from the master stack to connect to the new switch, it is possible that the new switch change the current configuration of stacking.
-Can I just add the new switch with clean configuration without changing the current configuration ? -How is assigned the stack number? i need the new switch be with the GI4 / x?. I can I manually by assigning ports? -If I want to the new 3750 member witch lower prioridad, can I change priority before adding to stack?
I'm looking for switches that support single mode fiber connections and would like to know if "WS-C3750-FS-S Catalyst 3750 24 100BaseFX + 2 SFP" and "WS-C3750G-12S-S Catalyst 3750 12 SFP" can serve the purpose?
I am troubleshooting a fiber connectivity issue.Now I have two switches, one is 3750, and another is small biz 300 series switch. Both switch has a single mode smf gbic. Now I have two swtiches face to face and connect with a single mode cable. Do you think if I would get a link light on? Both ports are no shutdown.
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 ?
Our environment consits of 4 cisco SGE2010 switches (stacked). I have implemented STP BPDUGUARD and Portfast on all client ports (suspected a loop). And our uplink to the Server DMZ recieves almost all of it's BPDU packets back(is that normal?) The issues lies where we have random ports dropping out - across all stacks for seconds at a time. We get errors/warning such as,Pinging between the DMZ network appears to be fine. Pinging from the client/switch network show packets being dropped quite frequently.All devices are on VLAN1 (I've have researched this and this could be the cause of the issue)
