Cisco and trunking configuration for Snap

Version 1

    When Configuring the SnapServer running Guardian OS 5.x for switch trunking, one must make sure to select the bonding mode for switch trunking in the Snap UI under network TCP/IP

     

    Next all remaining configuration must be done on the switch as mentioned in the Snap Administrator guide.

     

    WARNING: If you enable Switch Trunking on the Snap and do not properly configure your switch or if your switch is not capable of trunk switching, you will no longer be able to access the Snap server and will have to reset the unit to defaults or connect to the command shell using a Serial Null modem cable to reconfigure your network settings.  In this event, please refer to your Snap Administrator guide for commands available in the shell.

     

    Please refer to your Cisco Switch software configuration guide for configuring VLANs and pay specific attention to Configuring Vlans for trunk switching.

     

    Below is a sample configuration for a Cisco Catalyst 3750.
