This one's got me banging my head against a wall... likely a simple answer, but I've tried everything I know. I heard the internet's a smart place. :)

Have an SG300-28MPP connected to a clients' Catalyst (unsure of model, but it's recent). Have LAG1 (ports 11-12) set up to pass VLAN 75; works great. Port 25 on the SG300 is configured as a trunk, with VLANs 72 and 73 tagged.

Client's switch is configured with 75 tagged on the LAG, 72 and 73 tagged on the single-link trunk. No LACP on the LAG.

Something has changed on my end that causes port 25 to pass no traffic on either VLAN. (Within the last 24 hours I've been resolving a multicast issue... can't figure out what I may have done there that would affect this.)

Config appears below, with unrelated ports and security stuff removed.

Many thanks for any wisdom you can lend!

  • First, you should never, ever disable spanning tree on a switch-to-switch connection, especially if you have multiple connections between the switches. You are setting yourself up for a very big problem. Next, you should edit the question to include the configuration for the other switch. Determining what this configuration should look like depends on what is configured on the other switch. – Ron Maupin Jul 20 '16 at 19:16
  • As described below, far side config is available - I don't own that device; client is unavailable to ask. Will update as I have a chance. – Jon S. Jul 21 '16 at 20:58
  • Fairly sure the issue is mismatched native VLAN on the respective ports. And yes, I know full well STP needs to be on - it was off here for troubleshooting (theory being if I see a storm develop I know the links are working. :) ) I once brought a convention hotel to its knees by missing an STP config. – Jon S.

  • Without know how the other switch is configured, you can't be sure you configuration is correct. Even if you have what should be a correct configuration, it may not work because the other side is configured incorrectly. – Ron Maupin Jul 21 '16 at 21:06
  • Even with mismatched native VLAN numbers, traffic will pass on the native VLAN, but CDP will periodically give you a native vlan mismatch error. This is really cosmetic, and it is a pain because it keeps popping up, but it doesn't actually interfere with the traffic. – Ron Maupin Jul 21 '16 at 21:12

"Port 25 on the SG300 is configured as a trunk, with VLANs 72 and 73 tagged."

This does not make sense to me. Frames are tagged based on the access port they came from, not by a trunk port.

default-vlan vlan 71 why? Why did you change this from default of vlan 1? Put that back / undo that (say default-vlan default).

All the physical interfaces that you show us are described as WLAN. We need to see the trunk physical interfaces.

  • To clarify... the port is configured as a trunk, and accepts frames on 72 and 73 tagged. 71 is there 'cause the switch won't let me configure the trunk without being a member of a VLAN with untagged frames. VLAN 71 is the default in this setup; everything's worked fine with 71 in place. The interfaces are described as WLAN because they connect, via my client's infrastructure, to access points throughout the building. – Jon S. Jul 20 '16 at 19:38
  • post/add show interface for each trunk interface in to your question. Also the configs of those interfaces. – Ron Royston Jul 20 '16 at 19:41
  • If by "we need to see the trunk physical interfaces" you mean you need to see the far side configuration, that's not available at the moment - client is out of touch for a couple of days. As described, far side ports are members of 72 and 73, both tagged. – Jon S. Jul 20 '16 at 19:42
  • I'll work on a show int for everything shortly... – Jon S. Jul 20 '16 at 19:42

Make sure native VLANs match, or else the links won't form, even though lights are blinking...
