New Cisco Switch Implementation

Unanswered Question
May 27th, 2009

Just purchased a SGE2010 48 port switch and need to configure it and install into my network. Bought this switch so I could remove a very old Dell Power Connect switch that feeds my 9 servers, and computers, printers, etc and uplinks to a 3com baseline switch 2250 plus which feeds the remaining printers and computers.

I would like to possibly remove both old switches and implement this sge2010 so that all servers, computers, printers, etc are on 1 switch, implement VLAN's? Connect servers with their Dual GB nics?

I am open to any suggestions and new to setting up Cisco switches.

I have this problem too.

If you new, particularly to Cisco Switches, you might need to check the configuration document on cisco website http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps9984/index.html

Assuming all of those servers, computer and printers are on same subnet, you can just plug them all into the switch port 1-48 and it will work as all of those will be assigned to VLAN1 and the port will act as a switchport.

You might also need to configure the port as follow (quick and dirty)

int range f0/1 - 48

switchport mode access

switchport access vlan 1

switchport nonegotiate

spanning-tree portfast

exit
