Catalyst 3750 StackWise failover question

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by Igor Mamuziæ, May 10, 2006.

  1. If I have a couple of Catalyst 3750 switches integrated in a single stack
    and stack master is forced to reload due to a bus error crash for example -
    will another stack members continue forwarding data or entire stack is
    considered unavailable and will be forced to reload?

    My read of that document indicates that a new master would be elected
    and that traffic forwarding would continue on the operational switches.

    After reading this document I've got the same conclusion. In the near future
    I would have a chance to implement stackwise configuration and I have one DF
    grade IOS on which I can reproduce bus error crash. If I succeed with crash
    reproduction I'll write on this group about my experiences.
    I had implemented stackwise a couple years ago, but I tested failover only
    by simulating power down situations of stack master/members and in that case
    forwarding continued without noticeable interruption if any.
