Cisco Switching/Routing :: Stacking 3750X With 3750G?
Apr 22, 2013
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?
I have tried to downgrade the IOS on the 'X' to 122-55.SE5 however, i get errors regarding firmware incompatibility.
I am unable to upgrade the IOS on the 'G' to 150-1.SE3, as the size of the IOS image is larger than the available flash (Version 15 IOS for the 3750G (c3750-ipbasek9-mz.150-1.SE3.bin) is 16,074,189 bytes whereas the 3750G has 16MB of flash memory or 15,998,976 bytes total which mean the IOS will not fit).
Has not actually stacked these devices successfully? I understand there may be license implications of upgrading to 15 but at the moment I just want them to stack!
We are experiencing output drops on our 3750G-12S (IOS 12.2.55).
I have monitored throughput with MRTG, but it doesn't seem that high compared to that the 3750G is supposed to handle 17.8 Mpps.
The 3750G's are stacked, running ospf, qos, multicast (IPTV) and etherchannel.Is the maximum throughput reduced by stacking or any of the other features?
I don't know if one can estimate what the maximum throughput is per ASIC or per port, but on one of the ASICs that is having drops the peak unicast load is 1.3 Mpps and multicast Mpps is 0.9 Mpps. Total ~2.2 Mpps.
This doesn't seem high at all and I don't understand why the drops are appearing. What I can do to find out the reason for these drops?
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'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.
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).
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.
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..)
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
is it easy to remove the 3750x stacking? i'd like to test one of them on a sunday and keep the other one on production. it's just two stack of 3750x, is it hard and do i really need to remove the cables on the back?
basically i need to put a different config for my testing, i gues i need to remove the cables right? and put it back on the stack before monday.
I am working on a project to connect 2 switch stacks via 10 Gb fiber. I am told that the 3750Xs do not natively receive the 10 GB SFPs. What part numbers do i need to order to make this work? Is there any IOS image requirements?
Our customer has a stack of 6 3750G switches. They want to add another switch to the stack. I tried to quote another G, but I got a warning that the G series is EOS January 30,2013. Can I add a 3750X to the stack? I know that no matter what switch I get, I will have to upgrade the IOS in the stack, as the stack is running 12.2(25)SEE2.
Is that possible to configure a stack between then?

We had a stack of 4 qty 3750g running IP base on ver 12.2.32, then installed a 3750x to the stack and upgraded the whole stack to 15.0.2 SE3. In doing so, we noticed that the memory utilization jumped from 60-70% to 83-84%.
We had the same issue occur when upgrading to 15.0.2 SE3 on another stack that was 6 qty 3750g running ip-services, but this one jumped to 90%. On the 6 qty stack, we downgraded to 12.2.55 and the memory util went back down to 60-70%.
On the mixed stack, we replaced the 3750x with another 3750g and downgraded the whole stack to 12.2.55, however, the memory utilization did not drop down. As far as I can tell, no config changes have changed from the original IOS.
Any experience with bundling a 10GB interface on a 3750G-16TD-S with a WS-C3750X-48T-S with a 10GB interface. I have worked with 5 different TAC engineers and so far I have not gotten an answer on why the switch will not let me bundle the 10GB with another 10GB interface.
Same switch Stack – not a cross stack.
Tried every configuration possible with no luck. I originally thought it might be the stack-ring speed – I corrected that today and it is running at 32GB –
The only thing I can think of now is it might be a hardware limitation on the 3750G-16TD-S ?
Q. What performance of the 10 Gigabit Ethernet port on the Cisco Catalyst WS-C3750G-16TD switches?
A. The Ten Gigabit Ethernet uplink on the Cisco Catalyst WS-C3750G-16TD switches is 1.25:1 oversubscribed and provides maximum throughput of 8Gb/s. –
Running 12.2(53)SE2, IP base. Now I tried upgrading the firmware on the entire stack to 12.2(55)SE4 and ran into this error:(Command: archive download-sw /imageonly /overwrite /allow-feature-upgrade tftp://10.20.20.13/c3750e-universalk9-tar.122-55.SE4.tar)
Error: The image in the archive which would to used to upgade system number 2 does not support that system type.I haven't as yet removed the "3750G-24TS" switch from the stack and re-tried as yet, however, is the expectation that without the 24TS, the upgrade should work?
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 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 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 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.
