Greetings. I have one specific trouble with Catalyst 3560CG switch and Stardom reserved industrial controller. Controller has 2 processors, one of them after(!) negotiation become main with IP 192.168.1.1, other one stays in reserve with IP 192.168.1.129. If main one shuts down, spare one becomes main with IP 192.168.1.1. This perfectly works with DLINK and MOXA level 2 switches, but fails with Catalyst 3560, because spare one cannot even connect to switch port. I don't know the exact reason of it, but i suspect, that it happens because of before negotiation both controllers have ip 192.168.1.1 (i know, that it is wrong a nd weird, but so it goes). First of them correctly connects to switch port, which goes up and passes pings. Second processor tries to connect to switch port, which goes several times up and very soon down, then processor lefts his tries to connect to anybody and become idle. The switch seems to some way check IPs of 1-st and 2-nd port packets, and shuts down 2-nd port. I hav e connected via hyperterminal and tried to disable some level 3 functions and checks of the switch, but this wasn't helpful. Cannot anybody tell me how exactly(or at least approximately) should i configure a switch to make this bundle work? Thanks. P.S. Excuse me for my poor English, it's foreign for me =).
