Different. The clustering is used with the older 29xx models, and is not very effective in my opinion.

True stacking models are the 3750s.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!

Re: Cisco switch clustering

clustering is just usefull to manage many switches by a single IP address (save IP addresses).

no need for special cable.

to do it: you can use the web interface of your switch or look at this : http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps607/products_tech_note09186a00801347f8.shtml

good luck

Re: Cisco switch clustering

Hi,

Stacking and clustering are different.

A switch cluster is a set of up to 16 connected, cluster-capable Catalyst switches that are managed as a single entity. The switches in the cluster use the switch clustering technology so that you can configure and troubleshoot a group of different Catalyst desktop switch platforms through a single IP address.

Using switch clusters simplifies the management of multiple switches, regardless of their physical location and platform families.

Look at this... http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst3750/software/release/12.2_25_sec/configuration/guide/3750scg.html

Please rate if this helps....

Thanks..
