Two different and adjacent rooms with each 2930F

I have two separate rooms and want to connect these in one network.

the ISP is just in one room and should be available in the another room as well.

 

I have just the possibility to connect these two 2930F switches with Ethernet. 

Which keyword is necessary? Stacking?

Best.

Re: Two different and adjacent rooms with each 2930F

For (easy)management, you can set a VSF "Stacking" between your 2 switch (need SFP+ port)

Re: Two different and adjacent rooms with each 2930F

ok but i dont have a sfp+ port, just sfp.

and for in my case, it is not possible to use a new cable between the two rooms, so i need anything with ethernet.

Nothing possible?

And: could it be possible to do it your scenario with sfp?

you can use also SFP but no "stacking"

Re: Two different and adjacent rooms with each 2930F

ok and what method would work just with SFP?

Using tagging vlan for example

Re: Two different and adjacent rooms with each 2930F

Weird, that 2930F just SFP is not possible with VSF stacking.
I didnt found any references to this statement.

 

but i found this:

it should be possible, or is that another case, if yes what is the different?

Greetings!

 

The 2930F supports VSF on both 10G (SFP+) and 1G (SFP and copper) ports — the only caveat is that all VSF ports within a given stack have to be the same speed, which shouldn't be an issue on models with 1G SFP uplink ports.

Re: Two different and adjacent rooms with each 2930F

Here's a sample config of VSF stacking using a pair of 2930F switches.

More details about VSF are in the manual and there's another post about VSF here

 

I'm using a total of 4 ports at 1Gb each. Three of the links are fiber/SFP's and the 4th link is a copper port.  You can mix and match.  I had a spare ethernet between closets and we ran a multi-pair fiber between the closets.  If the fiber gets damaged by a contractor working in the building, the copper port will take over.  Once the construction is all done, I'll probaly remove the copper connection, but for now this is what we have.  As Matthew_Fern said, the speed must match.

 

hostname "MyVirtualSwitchStack-VSF"
vsf
   enable domain 5
   member 1
      type "JL256A" mac-address 123456-789abc
      priority 128
      link 1 1/48,1/50-1/52
      link 1 name "I-Link1_1"
      link 2 name "I-Link1_2"
      exit
   member 2
      type "JL256A" mac-address 123456-789abd
      priority 120
      link 1 2/48,2/50-2/52
      link 1 name "I-Link2_1"
      link 2 name "I-Link2_2"
      exit
   port-speed 1g
   exit

 

We're using old cisco SFPs for this, so I had to enable the:

 

allow-unsupported-transceiver

 

to get them to work, but if you're using HP SFP, you dont need that line.
