cisco WS-C2960S-24TS-S And Routing.....

Hello all,

I have a switch on a remote site that I need to act as a router. The switch is a cisco WS-C2960S-24TS-S

 

I understand that in order to do this, the switch needs to have the LANbase SDM. This is my current setup:

SW01#sh sdm prefer
 The current template is "default" template.
 The selected template optimizes the resources in
 the switch to support this level of features for
 0 routed interfaces and 255 VLANs.

  number of unicast mac addresses:                  8K
  number of IPv4 IGMP groups:                       0.25K
  number of IPv6 multicast groups:                  0.25K
  number of IPv4/MAC qos aces:                      0.375k
  number of IPv4/MAC security aces:                 0.375k
  number of IPv6 policy based routing aces:         0
  number of IPv6 qos aces:                          0
  number of IPv6 security aces:                     0.125k

 

Using this article as a reference http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/lan/catalyst2960/software/release/12-2_55_se/configuration/guide/scg_2960/swsdm.html

But in conf t mode, it doesn't recognise the sdm command.

 

What do I need to do to get the LAN base template loaded?

Do I need to upgrade the ios? If so, do I need to purchase a Smartnet in order to download this?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Cheers

T

You have a "LAN Lite" (the last "-S" suffix) and Cisco documents:

 

LAN base routing—The lanbase-routing template supports IPv4 unicast routes for configuring static routing SVIs

 

Note The lanbase-routing template is supported only on switches running Cisco IOS Release 12.2(55)SE or later and the LAN base image.

 

Cisco Catalyst 2960-S Series Switches are available with the LAN Base and LAN Lite feature sets. LAN Lite models provide reduced functionality and scalability for small deployments with basic requirements.

Note that each switch model is tied to a specific feature level; LAN Lite models cannot be upgraded to the LAN Base feature set.

Hi Reuben,Cisco IOS Software,

Is that enough? Or do you need anything more? If so, you'll probably have to tell me what commends to use :)

Many thanks

  Not positive but I believe

  Not positive but I believe that model 2960 cannot route  and you can't upgrade it to make it route as it is fixed from the factory on model type .   Which is why you don't see the appropriate SDM commands.

The only information I found

The only information I found in the documentation provided by tomd54321 ( http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/lan/catalyst2960/software/release/12-2_55_se/configuration/guide/scg_2960/swsdm.html ) is that you can enable ip routing but only for static routes. You would be better off getting a layer 3 switch that supports dynamic routing.

Agreed. That is the docs I've

Agreed. That is the docs I've been looking at. It certainly says that I can do routing. Static routing is fine with me. My problem is that I don't know where to start!

As a non Cisco head, I need to know my options. Clearly I could just buy a piece of kit that will do what I want. But I need to avoid that if possible.

As far as I can see it, my only other option is buy a Smartnet for this switch and get Cisco to answer the question I've posted on their forum.

Or maybe someone else can steer me in the right direction?

Thank you ever so much for your bad news :)

Exactly the information I'm after. Even if I do have to buy a new switch :(

 

 

 

Thanks all for any input.

Regarding purchasing a new L3 switch, you might also look at the SMB 300 and 500 series or you might consider getting a vary small L3 switch (like the EoL 3560-8PC) that you could route with (your existing 2960 would be still use for providing L2 ports).

Brilliant. Thanks Joseph.
