If we use 4 stackable 3750 switches ( connected in chain to form a single logical switch of 96 ports ) and configured the ports in different VLANs. And if any switch is turned off, say stack switch member 2 is powered down. What happens to the port numbering scheme? Now there will be three devices insted of four. In this case configurtaion of switch 3 and 4 will be wrong. Or it still works fine if stack member switch 2 is off.
We plan to conneect server two ethernet cards (Redundancy-Team-up Eth interface ) to seperate switches and obviously both ports will be in same VLAN.
IF port numbering scheme gets changed due to one member is powdered down then this solution will not work.
Please share the experience.
Any link on cisco.com which tells about such situation ?
In a stack environment nothing will happen if one of the switch member powered off. Of course if you have any device single homed to that specific switch it will loose connectivity. As for your server connectivity, make sure you team up the NICs (NIC teaming) and connect each NIC to a different switch and as long as you use Etherchannel you will have NIC redundancy and also switch redundancy. For your Etherchannel protocol use LACP as that is commonly supported by most servers.
Nothing happens to numbering, obviously.
Once matched, switches retain their number (switch provision) until split and reset.
