3 X 1810G-24 & 1 X 2824 Help Design.

Hi Guys,

Would someone please comment on which was is best for setting up the below swithcs.

We have one primary switch located in the server room which is a HP 2824 (all servers patched directly into this switch) from here we have 6 network cables routed through to the Comms Room.

In the Comms we have 3 x HP 1810g/24 (all client pc's pathced into these)

We have no VLANs just one flat network.

I'm setting up 3 trunks from the main to switch located in the server room to the 3 switchs in the Comms Room (Trk1, Trk2, Trk3)

The 2824 has RSTP enabled with all default settings.

All 3 of the 1810 switchs have Loop Protection enabled on all ports with again default Settings.

What i'd like to know is if the above is a correct design and also if i should be setting up any trunks/or anything between the 3x 1810's.

I've attached a basic diagram.

Please feel free to comenet.

Sorry, here's the att

The configuration is good, IMHO you can improve it by adding a backup connection between the users switches. (see attached file)

Thanks,

Are they just standard link connections, or is there any trunks etc involved.

Re: 3 X 1810G-24 & 1 X 2824 Help Design.

IF you have enough ports, You can define a trunk, but isn't necessary, because is only a backup connection

sorry to be so dumb but do you mean just simply patchin a network cable to each switch and thats it.

we have plenty of spare ports

Re: 3 X 1810G-24 & 1 X 2824 Help Design.

Just plug a cable between the switches, thats all. To check if the backup works, just unplug the trunk from one of the users' switch and check if the users' switch from you unplugged the trunk can work.

In fact, what this does, is using spanning tree.

Good luck,

No. Loop protection is NOT the same as full STP. LP much easier.

Thanks

Are we saying there's something else to configure on the 1810's to make the backup connecction ?

Re: 3 X 1810G-24 & 1 X 2824 Help Design.

The only thing you mast do is enable spanning tree in the ALL the switches (by default is disable) I.E:

switch_name# config (enter)
switch_name(config)#spanning_tree (enter)

Hi Pablo,

Thats where i'm getting stuck

I've done this on the 2824, but the 1810's do not have a telnet feature, you can only we manage these switchs, and in the web interface is only a LOOP PROTECTION mode. ?

This is why i am concerend plugging in the backup links ?

Hi guys
I have something similar.
How do you enable STP on 1810G's.

In no way - 1810G does not support STP.
