Re: compatibility with 3com

As far as I know there is no problem when using these switches. Even when in aggregated mode, the Dell switches use the same protocols as 3Com does. You need to check the settings in the ports connected of each switch. The Dell Power Edge uses the same commands as Cisco, so if you are trying to setup a trunk between the switches, use the following commands:

In 3Com:

port link-type trunk

port trunk permit vlan all

port trunk pvid vlan <vlan_id>

In Cisco:

switchport mode trunk

switchport trunk allowed vlan all

switchport trunk native vlan <vlan_id>
