Re: configuration of layer3 switch as layer2 switch

Hi,

Look at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst6500/ios/12.1E/native/configuration/guide/layer2.html

Paragraph: Configuring LAN Interfaces for Layer 2 Switching.

Best regards.

By default, the switchports in the 6500 Series switch is set to Layer3 switchport.

To change from Layer3 to Layer2, you enter switchport on the intended interface.
