I have 4 switches in this issue, 2 core switches (3650 in stack) and then 2 2960-x each on different floors.
First 2960 has a link to the core switches, and the second is trunked to first 2960. I have each of the 2960 with a management IP assigned to vlan1. Port config is as follows
2960-1 Port 1/0/48 trunked to 3650 stack port 2/0/48
2960 2 port 1/0/48 trunked to 2960 1 port 1/0/47
all ports in trunked mode with switchport trunk vlan allowed all
I'm not sure if i need dot1q on the 2960's to work. But i'm not able to access the management ip of either 2960. Was hoping to have someone peek at the config and see if i'm missing something.
The 3650 config for that interface :
