New Cisco Switch Implementation

Just purchased a SGE2010 48 port switch and need to configure it and install into my network. Bought this switch so I could remove a very old Dell Power Connect switch that feeds my 9 servers, and computers, printers, etc and uplinks to a 3com baseline switch 2250 plus which feeds the remaining printers and computers.

I would like to possibly remove both old switches and implement this sge2010 so that all servers, computers, printers, etc are on 1 switch, implement VLAN's? Connect servers with their Dual GB nics?

I am open to any suggestions and new to setting up Cisco switches.

Re: New Cisco Switch Implementation

If you new, particularly to Cisco Switches, you might need to check the configuration document on cisco website

Assuming all of those servers, computer and printers are on same subnet, you can just plug them all into the switch port 1-48 and it will work as all of those will be assigned to VLAN1 and the port will act as a switchport.

You might also need to configure the port as follow (quick and dirty)

int range f0/1 - 48

switchport mode access

switchport access vlan 1

switchport nonegotiate

spanning-tree portfast
