Run 2x1G links from asw-b1-codfw to cloudsw1-b1-codfw
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Hi,

I've planned two 1G links in Netbox, might it be possible to connect them up? Just 2 1G copper links within rack B1 between the exsiting asw and new cloudsw there:

Will need copper SFPs on the cloudsw side. Let me know if you think it's possible.

thanks!

I've made the patches with some changes. Port 46 on cloudsw1-b1-codfw is already configured for a fiber connection and is occupied. I have run the copper patches as follows:

cloudsw1-b1-codfw ge-1/0/44 <-> asw-b1-codfw ge-1/0/31
cloudsw1-b1-codfw ge-1/0/45 <-> asw-b1-codfw ge-1/0/32

Thanks @Jhancock.wm! And yes I made an error on those allocations I will update Netbox now.

@Jhancock.wm my apologies errors abound on this one.

I just realised that on the QFX5120 platform we can't mix and match the speed of ports in any block of 4.

That means we can't use port 44 and 45 at 1G, while 46 and 47 (as you already noted) are connected and set up at 10G.

Could I ask you to move the new links to ports 40 and 41 instead? I've updated Netbox IDs:

https://netbox.wikimedia.org/dcim/interfaces/28549/trace/

https://netbox.wikimedia.org/dcim/interfaces/28550/trace/

Could you also update Netbox with the cable IDs for the two links? They won't be there very long but best to do anyway.

thanks.

@cmooney I got these repatched as depicted in the links. Thanks for waiting. Please let me know if you need anything else!

That's great Jenn thanks! All looking good and working now :)
