I'm going to replace my core switch from C6509E to C9500-24Q. Using MS350-48FP, stack of 3, L2 config
This is my test setup:
Cabling: Internet -- C6509 -- MS350 -- C9500
All ports at VLAN 100 (Class C)
C9500 and MS350:- 1 port (10G-SX)- No aggregation- no STP (as told be Meraki Support)
As long the C6500 port is in access mode and MS350 is in access or trunk:
- Connection is established (L1)
- all devices are pingable
- Meraki cloud is reachable (White indicator/green in dashboard)
When changing the C9500 port to trunk and MS350 is in access or trunk:
- C9500 is isolated. No ping though MS-350
- MS-350 couldn't reach the Meraki cloud (amber indicator/red in dashboard)
Test also with STP, but no loop, same result.
Any idea what went wrong?
With regard to spanning tree - use MST on the 6500 and 9500. Note some old code versions on the 6500 had buggy MST code.
spanning-tree mode mst
I would use trunk ports between all switches.
If the path to the Internet is not using VLAN1 you'll need to configure the management VLAN on the MS via the local status page under uplink configuration.
