Hi,

C2950's are not stackable, the only stackable switches are C3750's. But I think you mean Clustering, this guide will help you to accomplish your required setup.

I suggest you install Cisco Network Assistant, this will help you to set things up using a GUI interface.

Re: Problem with Cisco Catalyst 2950 Switch stackable

Hi,

Cisco has a very distinct terminology for interconnected switches:

1. Cisco StackWise: Available only with 3750 and 3750E series Switches. In which one may connect upto 9 Switches in row, and all of them become virtually 1 single switch.

2.Cisco GigaStack: USed to connect multiple switches (with GBIC Slots), that gives more scalability

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/modules/ps5455/products_data_sheet09186a00800a1789.html

3. Cisco Switch Clusters: A built-in Management function for switches that allows management of multiple switches using a single IP

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst2950/software/release/12.1_22_ea11x/configuration/guide/swclus.html

I hope this makes all the things more transparent to you.

Please rate if helpful.

Kind Regards,

Wilson Samuel
