I have worked with Cisco 3560 switches before. Generally, we have several switches in three different bindings, connected via fiber run another 3560 switch and router in the building where WAN comes into facility via fiber
I currently have 3560s deployed and the gbic connector in the old "master switch" would split between different buildings on lan.
Probably more information than what is needed here but . . .
This 3750 is a new animal to me. My guess it is more of a true "master switch" where each interface has it's own IP. I have consoled into the switch and I am just trying to understand this.
I was trying to set up the 3750 like it was just another switch, like the 3560s, inly with 12 SPFs.
Is my guess correct, and is it possible not to configure it as a Master switch and just have one IP on the entire switch rather than separate IPs for each interface. I am obviously not understanding what I see when I go into configure the switch.
The pic below just shows three new 3560s that I will be deploying and already accessible on via CNA. The one on top is the 3750 that I am trying to configure via CLI but I can't get green lights on the interface I am trying to use an interconnect cable on. Like I said, I suspect I don't understand the basic differences between the 3750 and the 3560s I know pretty well.
I was planning on having several weeks before I needed to deploy, but several weeks has turned into several hours or a few days at most.
