I just recently have been given the task of network management. My first goal (outside of learning how to run a network) is to inventory and organize the wiring closets. My question is: what is the best or most common way to organize patch panels and access-level switches in a rack? To reduce the amount of cable needed or used I wanted to place panels right above the switches they are directly connected to. Maybe two patch panels over two or three switches followed by two more patch panel over two or three more switches. I have also seen the patch panels mounted in a rack directly to the side of the rack and switches they are connected to. All ideas and thoughts would be appreciated.
You might also want to keep in mind whether you might, in the future, have stackable switches, e.g. 3750s, or a chassis. I.e. Possible reason to have a block of space where patch panels don't intermingle with separate switches.
We have 3 identical switches configured by someone else and would like to claim some of the Gigabit ports(G1/G2/G3/G4) for use on servers. When we try to change the wiring and configuration, we run in to connectivity issues. Attached is a des...
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
