i do have 3 SLM2048 Switches installed and configured as a single Stack.
The switches are running fine. My problem is, that the Web interface is quite slow and also in some cases not that flexible ( if i want to configure VLANs i have to do this for each port seperately, what takes me too much time).
Because we have a test lab, i need to switch the VLANs almost every week.
Is there a way to configure multiple ports for VLAN with almost one click ?
Or is there an advanced CLI interface to script VLAN configurations ?
Unfortunately there is no scripting or Command Line for any of our small business switches at the moment. I apologize for the inconvenience but this switch don't have an option for quick deployment of configurations like your wanting.
Maybe next time you might consider the SRW2048-k9-NA (NA standing for North America) as a Small business purchas , this is the very new replacement for the old SRW2048. The SRW series traditionally was one step above the SLM series in features and functions. Now with the SRW series refresh that recent occured it really seems to be generations ahead of SLM and the older SRW series.
Maybe next time.
It's a newer technology switch slight more expensive but a nice fully managed switch, but comes with great warranty and forward NBD replacement where applicable..
Very young in it's life cycle and has the option to modify an text based configuraion file for faster delpyment. You may note from the script below a few features;
1. IPv6 for NG network support
2. Support for OUI identification of IP phones for some Auto QOS options.
3. Bonjour and Cisco Findit support
4. Green features with some power saving options.
here's an example of a script just taken from my SRW2008P-K9-NA, having this script would definetly speed up deployment.
