Small Business SF300 cascade

Hi

I have 4 SF300 switches I need to cascade together but the user guides do not seem to cover the physical aspects of cascading the swtiches.

Here is what I was planning perhaps someone could verify the setup or give me the benefit of their experience.

SW1 (port GB2) --> SW2 (port GB1)

SW2 (port GB2) --> SW3 (port GB1)

SW3 (port GB2) --> SW4 (port GB1)

SW3 (port GB2) --> SW1 (port GB1) - loopback for cascade cable redundancy.

Does this sound about right?

after initial use the setup will be changed to place switches 3 and 4 in a factory at which time we will then use the GBIC connectors and fibre to connect SW2 to SW3 and then SW4 back to SW1.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Hello Gary,

The connection you described would work well for these switches. It allows for up and down traffic to use the gig ports as well as providing redundancy.

Hi,

I would like to add that you'll want to make sure your STP (Spanning Tree) settings are correct so your traffic will flow properly as you have planned your network traffic to flow but other than that yes this will work perfectly.
