Connect two stack GS752TP

Hi to all,

in a network infrastructure I have create a Stack with 1 GS728TP as master and 5 GS752TP.

On this stack I have created some VLAN.

To switches 1 and 2 are connected the esxi hosts and the datastores; to other swicthes all the rest of the network.

Now because the maximum stack limit is six switches, I would to create a new stack of two switches (GS752TP) in order to connect the esxi hosts and the datastore. 

It is possible? 

How can I connect the two stacks together?

Do I create all the vlans on the new stack and delete them on the second stack?

Every help is welcome.

Best Regards

Gaetano

Hi Iwawa,

 

Yes, that would be possible. I recommend to setup a LAG/LACP on two group of stacks in order for you to have a better connection. Creating/Deleting the VLANs will depend if you still need it on your new stack. As long as they are connected via LAG/LACP then there shouldn't be any problem.

 

What are link aggregation and LACP and how can I use them in my network?

Hi John

Thanks for the reply.

I'm doing now some tests.

I just need to understand how to TAG the ports tag on the LAG.

Have You a suggestion?

Best Regards

@Iwawa,

 

Setting up the LAG as a Tagged port is same as the other ports. Select Switching > VLAN > Advanced > VLAN Membership and set the assigned LAG ports to T. Don't forget to enable the LAG group that you created at the bottom.

Re: Connect two stack GS752TP

Hello,

I have create this LAG.

  • When you suggest me to tag the ports used for the lag, do you mean this?

  • Do I must repeat this operation on all the VLANs I've created?

 



Don't forget to enable the LAG group that you created at the bottom.
  • Where exactly I enable the lag? In the last line and for each VLAN?

I really appreciate your help

@Iwawa,

 

This is correct.

You may just remove the Tagging on ports 46-48 and just enable LAG by putting T on LAG 1.

You just enabled the LAG by putting T on the last line. Please make sure that you are going to put T on the LAG ID that you created which is LAG 1. Just let me know if you have questions.
