MX LAN Trunk Port with Non Meraki Switch

Hi,

 

I am looking for anyone who has experience about my subject.

Customer has a cisco catalyst switch with 3 VLANs. So I tried to connect between MX100 and Catalyst Switch with Trunk Port(dot1q).

But I was failed to connect.

 

MX100-MS225 Trunk Port Test was good.

Cisco-Cisco Trunk Port Test was good.

MX-Cisco SW Trunk Port Test was failed.

 

I don't know why this test was failed.

So VLAN1000 is working but VLAN2000 is not working.  2000 is in the extended VLAN range (not part of the standard VLAN range).  It should work.  The issue will be something to do with the use of the extended VLAN range.  Let me think about it more.

Re: MX LAN Trunk Port with Non Meraki Switch

What specifically is failing?

 

Lets pretend you wanted to trunk VLAN1 (Native) and VLAN100.

 

On your Catalyst switch (like a 2960-X) you would have something like:

interface Gigabit 0/1

 switchport mode trunk

 switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,100

 

On your MX you would have something like:

You'll have to supply some more information. As per @PhilipDAth's reply this clearly specify's what's required from a configuration aspect, the only difference is you'll have to configure the 3 VLAN's rather than 2?

Re: MX LAN Trunk Port with Non Meraki Switch

On your 6500 have you got "spanning-tree extend system-id" configured globally to allow the passing of the extended VLAN range?

Kind of a big deal

Re: MX LAN Trunk Port with Non Meraki Switch

Are you able to change from using a VLAN ID of 2000 to a number that is 1001 or below?
