I need to create a new setup using cisco 3750 switches. They will replace 2950 switches which are cascaded using GBIC ports. Need I connect the 3750 switches using stack cables. And in this case therewon't be any requirement to use 10/100 ports to cascade.
If you will be using several 3750 switches there are several advantages to connecting them using the stack cables. One advantage is that you do not use any 10/100 ports to create the connections. Other advantages include having much higher bandwidth on the link between switches and a better alternative for managing the stack.
I have a total of 7 switches. Now I should connect each switches with the stack cable and as per the earlier setup how could I connect this to the primary/secondary core swtiches for redundance. Please advise
My idea is that I should connect all the 7 3750 with stack cables and first one should be connected to the primary switch and last switch in the stack to secondary switch. Both primary and secondary switches are for redundancy. In this case if primary switch goes down traffic could be through the secondary. Now my question is this setup will do in the stacked switches. How STP will run. Please help
my question here is onto the 7 stacked switches, how should I connect the primary core switch(Root) and onto which should I connect the secondary switch. Is that STP will be operational and the link on the secondary swithch will be put on blocking state.
To connect the first and last switch in the stack you will require a longer stacking cable that will need to be purchased seperately. Depending on how you have spaced your switches (ie with cable management etc) depends on how long a cable you will need.
