I am having no luck at all connecting a SONOS PLAY:1 to a port of my MS210-BLP
Every port setting I have tried results in a UDLD error on the port and then loops and meltdown and the only state I can recover to means leaving the PLAY:1 off the wired network
I have a SONOS controller connected to the same switch and following the advice I read here:
I have enabled RTSP on the ports connecting to the SONOS CONTROLLER but it does not matter what I set to the PLAY:1 (RTSP ENABLED / DISABLED) still results in a UDLD error
Any suggestions appreciated ?
I have a Play:3 connected to my MS220-8P without issues. It is running at 100Mbps though, which is the max speed of the interface on the Play:3, and I'm pretty sure also on the Play:1. 100Mbps is plenty for music streaming.
How do you have the port configured?
Do you have multiple speakers wired up?
I only have a single one wired up, the rest connect to this one Play 3 over the Sonos proprietary wireless mesh network. I found this to be the best setup.
My switchport has the default configuration:
When you wire up multiple Sonos devices to the same network your Meraki network might detect a loop as I think by default the Sonos builds a L2 bridge between the wired ports of multiple Sonos devices in the same network. In that case you might have to fiddle with the port settings (although I think STP will handle this fine).
This is the basic config I have been trying with my switch with RTSP toggled both on and off and in each case I have seen UDLD errors
I do notice that your port is set to TRUNK where I have been using ACCESS
Thanks for the suggestion - honestly I have swapped cables ad infinitum
I have actually just realised though that the Play:1 has associated with the home WiFi and works over that with no issue for now so I have pulled the ethernet cable and see what happens
