Re: c7000 with ethernet switch

Cisco 3020 is just like any other non-blade Cisco Switch. On this switch ports 1-16 will map to the NICs, 17 to 22 are external ports, and 23-24 can be used as external ports or x-connect ports betweend adjancent bays. If you want to pass more than 1 vlan on the external ports, you just need to configure the port as a trunk or use DTP.

e.g.
config# Int gi0/17
config-if#swithchport mode trunk
config-if#swithchport trunk allowed vlan x,y
config-if#swithchport native vlan x

VLANs can be create as well from the vlan database or config mode.
