Bad port on 470-48T switch

Bad port on 470-48T switch

Post by Ron » Wed, 20 Jun 2007 09:35:39


I have a cascaded stack of 3 of these 470-48T switches that I just put
out. Just put these out about 2 weeks ago and started to migrate from
my old switches to them.

On the base unit, one of the ports is bad, does not light up when I
connect something to it. My question is if I get a replacement
switch, update the software on it to my current software, and then if
I just swap that switch out for a new one will it automatically pull
down all the configs, like vlans, port assignments etc? Or will I
have to set everything up again?

thanks.

The new ES470 will pull all configuration from entire stack.

Even if the bad port is on the base unit? When I put in a new base
unit it will get all MLT and vlan info?

first, download the config just in case
as long as the stack remains powered up, the stack will operate as one
unit and when the new base is installed the other units provide the
config. The base is required when first powered up to provide the config
so as long as does not reboot until the new unit is in place and in the
stack should be OK. also look at the hardware conifguration from the
menu when the unit is up just to make sure the stack sees as the
base/unit 1 or may need to renumber that unit in the stack.

Or you can use another way to do it.
1. Dump the binary configuration file from the stack to a TFTP
server.
2. On the new ES470, issue "copy tftp config address x.x.x.x filename
yyy unit #".
This command lets you download a specific unit configuration from
TFTP server.
3. Replace the old ES470 with this new one
