I have an industrial network with ring topology, consisting of a number of dumb switches and one manageable switch (Siemens OSM 62) acting like a supervisor. But now I would like to add new switch to this network. The problem is that this new switch (Stratix 5700 it's a Cisco clone) is manageable too and I'd like to force it to act as a dumb one (just to forward data from one port to another). Is there any chance how to set this new switch (using some "fancy hack") to doing this?
Thank you in advance!
