Cisco 4500 CatOs, help initial config

Ranbeckycr_2

Hello Experts,

I have been reading for the last 3 days on how to setup this old switch 4500. It is running CATOS and I want to make

sure that when I connect it to the network it doesn't create a loop since it has to be compatible with other vendors, not just Cisco.

I don't have anything connected but these are my concerns:  It doesn't show my lacp-channel (i believe this is what is used to for Teaming network cards), it doesn't show my trunk ports.

TestSwitch> (enable) show lacp-channel

No ports channelling

TestSwitch> (enable) show trunk ?

  detail                     Show detailed information

  <mod>                      Module number

  <mod/port>                 Module number and Port number(s)

  extended-range             Show extended range entries

  |                          Output modifiers

  <cr>

TestSwitch> (enable) show trunk det

No ports trunking.

TestSwitch> (enable) show trunk

No ports trunking.

TestSwitch> (enable) sh config

This command shows non-default configurations only.

Use 'show config all' to show both default and non-default configurations.

Hi,

I belive these are logs from the switch you just configured.

I can see that you are using MST mode in spanning tree. However, I can't see any MST config other than

set spantree mode mst

For MST to work you need to have a region name, revision number and instances of what vlans you want to group togther. I have pasted a sample  config. It's been a while since I worked on CatOS henc you need to just double check the commands.

CatOS

#MST Configuration

set spantree mst config rollback force

set spantree mst config name  revision 0

set spantree mst 0 vlan   

IOS

switchB(config)# spanning-tree mst configuration
switchB(config-mst)# name corpbuilding
switchB(config-mst)# revision 1
switchB(config-mst)# instance 1 vlan 1 - 5
switchB(config-mst)# instance 2 vlan 6 - 10

Maybe this link might help you a bit

I connected this switch to the network and the network collapsed:

Got this error messages:

Kishore,

Thanks for your reply, I enabled MST because I thought that was required for a NonCisco equipment.

If you have any idea as to what configuration is needed to connect to a 3rd party Switch please let me know.

Oddly enough, even if I just plug 1 port to the network, my network will start having problems, dropping random connections.  Once computers start randomly dropping they never come back up until I disconnect the Switch.

Thanks!!

Right on the money!!!  Thanks Kishore, we had to add the mst group just as you suggested.  Will monitor but the network is not shutting down. 

Hello Guys,

 

I have one 4506 chassis switch which stuck and not booting.  I am not getting anything on the screen by connecting with console.

PoE status light on each slot is red.

utilization lights on supervisor is randomly flashing in a loop.

 

I  already tried pressing reset button before powering on but it doesn't help.

 

Any suggestions
