Hi there, can you answer this:
If I do 'show run' on a Cat 3750, which command line should I be looking into to determine whether switch has additional 'blades' correctly configured and available for redundancy in case of failure?
On the cat 4500 switches, I should be looking for HSRP(standby ip) entry in order to determine whether redundancy configuration is in place, right?
regd. Cisco 3750, it is a single hardware box & additionally you can't add any blades on to it unlike 4500 or 6500 series chassis type switches. there are 2 ways for having redundancy for 3750.
Stacking 2 switches to gether(will act as 1 single switch with 32Gbps back plane), but restricted to use with maximum of 3Metres.
Configure HSRP between 2 3750's, advantage of configuring HSRP than Stacking is, geographical switch can reside else where in within the building, where for stacking, Max. of 3M is only possible.
hope your clear with this explanation.
rate this post if satisfied.
lemme know anything else has to clarified.
