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.

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.

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?
