I've been asking about connecting two stacks and have finally got to the stage where I'm ready to go but was hoping someone could have a quick look at this to see if I'm missing anything?
Stack1 is our existing production stack and cannot have any downtime
Stack2 currently only contains one 3750 Catalyst switch, this will increase over time
I have created an etherchannel port on both stacks ready to link them. Stack 1 is the VTP server and stack 2 is set to VTP client. Stack 1 has a loopback address of 10.130.0.1 although when the stacks are connected I will be changing this to use HSRP with the .1 address as the standby address. Below is the relevant config of the switches, are the OSPF settings valid?
Anyway, if anyone sees anything blatantly wrong or if there is something else I neeed to look at please let me know. Apologies if this is very basic but you have to start somewhere don't you . I'm just terrrified of joining the stacks and bringing everything down.
interface Loopback0 ip address 10.130.0.1 255.255.255.255
If I apply the spanning-tree vlan root command to stack 1, what would the outage affect, Stack1, Stack 2 or both?
The next stage of my plan is to move some switches to stack 2 and finally retire Stack 1. Would it be worthwhile adding the spanning-tree vlan root primary to stack1 and spanning-tree vlan root secondary to Stack 2?
Once stack 1 is retired I could change Stack2 to be primary or even remove the command?
Thanks again for your help.
I have just looked at the config on stack 1 and seen the following lines
