I need some help changing a setting on a cisco 6006. I am going to replace an old cisco switch with a hp switch that connects via fiber into the cisco 6006 in slot 5 port 1. The cisco has ISL trunk settings turned on and I need to change this to port on the 6006 from isl to 802.1q . I am sure this is a easy task for most cisco guys but I know very little of it.

Any help is appreciated

If you want a general trunked port config, use these settings:

switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport mode trunk
switchport nonegotiate

Still confused I am looking for the command to do this. I know very little about the cisco 6006. The port I want changed to to 802.1q is in slot 5 port 1 on the 6006. Can you give me some commands to this ?

Try this:

conf t
int fa5/1          (or gi5/1 if it is a gigabit port)
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport mode trunk
switchport nonegotiate
end
sh run int fa5/1           (or sh run int gi5/1 if it is a gigabit port)
copy running-config startup-config

IF the above commands don't work, type "show version" (without the quotes) and post the results.

Are You Ready for GDPR?

With the GDPR deadline set for May 25, 2018, many organizations are ill-prepared due to uncertainty about the criteria for compliance. According to a recent WatchGuard survey, a staggering 37% of respondents don't even know if their organization needs to comply with GDPR. Do you?

Do I need to be in a session 15 before running this command?

It looks like you have the older CATOS, the code for setting a trunk looks like this:

set trunk {mod-num/port-num} {auto|desirable|ON|OFF} dot1q

so type

set trunk gi5/1 on dot1q


Here's an article on it, if you're interested - http://www.ciscopress.com/articles/article.asp?p=29803&seqNum=3

Do I have to type in session 15 and then be in the enable mode of session 15 or do I just need to be in the enable mode when I first telnet to it.

No, session 15 gives you access to the router module.  Note the number in the mod column from your earlier post.

"15  1    WS-F6K-MSFC         SAD042203AB Hw : 1.4"

If I recall, on the 6000, CATOS uses the command "write memory" to save the config.

Some versions of CATOS saved changes as they were being made.  Is the "copy running-config startup-config" command available?
