a project leader bought a dell switch for his rack and I was going to try to uplink it to one of my cisco switches in hopes of configuring trunking on one of the ports and use dot1q to propagate vlan info to the Dell switch. I see on my 3560 switch I'm able to use dot1q encapsulation, but can't seem to find the command on the 2960. Does the 2960 support dot1q? Is that what I'm missing here, is that why the vlans are not being propagated to the dell switch? I have both ports on either end of uplink configured as trunk ports, vlan 1 is passing fine, just no others. Tested connectivity to vlan 1 and it is working.
You have to configure the VLANs on both switches they won't appear automatically.
