Change the domain ID so it is different to the current two and connect it, with three switches a ring topology makes most sense. Are you using ISL trunking between the other two switches? ISL traffic can be reduced by having storage and servers that use it on the same switch but sometimes that's not possible.

default IP address is 10.77.77.77 username = admin and password = password.
