Trunking between Switches and Routers

Unanswered Question
Oct 16th, 2007


Cannot make that CM Topology Services display trunks (802.1q) between Switches (2950) and Routers (2600 series). Even when I tried to configure the trunk from CM, the message is that the Router does not support trunking.

The line is displayed if it is in access mode, but as soon as we configure trunking from the router (with subinterfaces and dot1q encapsulation) this lines disappears.

Does CM support this kind of trunking? (en real life, the trunk is working fine, but CM does not display it).



I have this problem too.

This may not work since the MIBs on the router are not at the same level as those on switches. Additionally, Campus Manager treats routers as "Routers" which to Campus aren't very special. Campus Manager's trunking capabilities are really geared towards pure switches.
