Hi all, I need some help with renumbering of the stacks in the 2960S switches. Description: The switches are now physically racked, from top-down, switch1, switch2, switch3, switch4. At least, this was what I thought. The switches' installation and stacking weren't setup by me. The switchports were patched in ascending order, to the patch panels' labelling. Problem: One day, I went into the switch's console and was astonished to find that the switches are arrange, in its configuration, in the order of switch1, switch2, switch4, switch3! This presents 2 main issues. (1) Customer doesn't like it. They are as surprised as I am. I'm the guy who'll try to beautify the setup so I guess I'm pretty disturbed by the numbering issue.All the switchports are patched in ascending order, across all 4 switches in the stack. But now the switchports are patched not in the correct order, in the switches switch4 and switch3. Physically on the rack, the switchports are filled up on switch1, switch2, switch3, while switch4 has got some switchports available. So to further elaborate on my point, in the switch configuration, the switch4 has all the switchports filled up and switch3 is the one that has some switchports available. (2) The switch stack has 2x 10G OneX cable to 2 core switches for link redundancy. Before I realised the problem, the first cable is connected to switch1 and the second cable to switch4 (rack view). In actual fact, the second cable is attached to the wrong switch; as shown in the configuration, it is connected toa switch3. Again, from the rack view, the cable is connected to the correct switch number. For that matter, I have re-attached the second OneX cable to switch3. Actions Required: (1) I need the switches' physical racking order to remain the same; switch1, switch2, switch3, switch4. I would choose not to do the manual arrangement. If I choose to do that, I will need to re-patch approximately 70 patch cords. (2) I need to configure the ordering of the switch stacks (in the configuration) to reflect what is physically laid out on the rack. Right now, in the configuration, the switches are arranged switch1, switch2, switch4, switch3. Once that is done, I will move the second OneX cable to the last switch (switch4). Well, this is the brief description of what are the intended actions. May I have some advise and comments from the community here? I have read some of the entries and got to know on how to assign the master role, which is not what is intended here. Do the configurations get the risk of getting wiped out or corrupt after changing? Many thanks in advance. - Jack Output: ASW01#sh switch detail Switch/Stack Mac Address : e8ed.f3b2.f100 H/W Current Switch# Role Mac Address Priority Version State ---------------------------------------------------------- *1 Master e8ed.f3b2.f100 14 1 Ready 2 Member e8ed.f365.a400 1 1 Ready 3 Member c025.5c00.b680 12 1 Ready 4 Member c025.5c00.b900 1 1 Ready Stack Port Status Neighbors Switch# Port 1 Port 2 Port 1 Port 2 -------------------------------------------------------- 1 Ok Ok 2 4 2 Ok Ok 1 3 3 Ok Ok 4 2 4 Ok Ok 3 1

Hi all, I picked up some old equipments and tried to get them started up. 1 of which is a 2621 and the other a 2650XM. I will describe the problem for these 2 items. 1) 2621 This equipment can only get the fan operational and absolutely no lights except for the PWR LED at the front. Consoled in and there is no response. I tried taking out the flash / memory and still no response. 2) 2650XM This one here is pretty interesting. I got to console in a few days before and when I took it out today, it just went to ROMMON. LEDs are stable ON, for the PWR at the front and the link LEDs at the back. This screenshot below shows the bootup before going to ROMMON. So I tried to tftpdnld new image in, swapped flash and reset a couple of times. For the past few hours, I kept seeing the response as shown above. Then somehow, I managed to get a "better" response, as shown at the screenshot below. And so, it gets stuck here all day and doesn't get in to ROMMON automatically. I unplug the UTP cable to fa0/0 and cycled the power again. And then, I got the response as shown below. An extra line of response. I am really stuck on this. Are the 2 routers really dead? I have read up and even thought of trying to change the ROM chip - not sure it that helps though. But I want to listen to comments prior to getting down to the extraction tool and chips. Appreciate for the inputs and comments. Thanks.
