Hi,

I am trying to setup a Cisco switch as below, the switch needs to connect back to two other switches one for the telephones and one for the Desktops.

I have configured switches before but dont do it that often and prefer to use the GUI,


This is what I have so far:

Ports 1,2,3,4,5,6,13,14,15,16,17,18 (VLAN2) for Cisco telephones
Ports 7,8,9,10,11,12,19,20,21,22,23,24 (VLAN3) for Desktops

1. I have configured the following VLANS from VLAN Management -> VLAN Settings

1 Default Desktops
2 VOIP

2. I have port the ports into a VLAN from the VLAN Management -> Port VLAN Membership
       
       Interface - Mode - Admin VLAN - Operation VLAN
      FE1      Access      2UP      2UP            
      FE2      Access      2UP      2UP            
      FE3      Access      2UP      2UP            
      FE4      Access      2UP      2UP            
      FE5      Access      2UP      2UP            
      FE6      Access      2UP      2UP            
      FE7      Trunk      1UP      1UP            
      FE8      Trunk      1UP      1UP            
      FE9      Trunk      1UP      1UP            
      FE10      Trunk      1UP      1UP            
      FE11      Trunk      1UP      1UP            
      FE12      Trunk      1UP      1UP            
      FE13      Access      2UP      2UP            
      FE14      Access      2UP      2UP            
      FE15      Access      2UP      2UP            
      FE16      Access      2UP      2UP            
      FE17      Access      2UP      2UP            
      FE18      Access      2UP      2UP            
      FE19      Trunk      1UP      1UP            
      FE20      Trunk      1UP      1UP            
      FE21      Trunk      1UP      1UP            
      FE22      Trunk      1UP      1UP            
      FE23      Trunk      1UP      1UP            
      FE24      Trunk      1UP      1UP            
      GE1      Trunk      1UP      1UP            
      GE2      Trunk      1UP      1UP            
      GE3      Trunk      2UP      2UP            
      GE4      Trunk      1UP      1UP

3. VLAN1 is working but VLAN2 is not, fe4 on this switch is currently connected back to another switch on port fe4.

I have tried using the GE ports with no luck as well so I might just be doing something stupid, I think its just that the switch is not talking back to the other switch.

Regards
Julian

All the desktop ports are in trunk mode, was this intended.  If the desktop vlan is 3 they need to be access ports in VLAN 3.

Hi,

I was not certain if this was correct or not, What should the link to the other switch be?

This statement But   FE4      Access      2UP      2UP  

That port is not a trunk and is access only in vlan 2.

you didn't share the entire network design but if you are going to carry both VLANs on that port it would be trunk, and have VLAN 2 tagged.  VLAN 1 untagged usually for the native VLAN.  The configuration on both sides should agree on this information to carry the VLANs correctly.
