switch setup

The dell, cisco (except for catos), hp and foundry switches all use a fairly similar cisco ios-like syntax. CatOS is totally different (and evil). These examples are from a cisco 3750 but other ios-like switch command lines are similar.

  • set the switch port to the right vlan
daiba#configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
daiba(config)#interface GigabitEthernet1/0/2
daiba(config-if)#switchport mode access
daiba(config-if)#switchport access vlan 42
  • set the port description to the hostname of the server
  • The new configuration is now active, but it should be saved.
