24-port 1G Switch with POE
« on: October 04, 2011, 04:07:19 pm »
Has anyone tested any 24-port 1G Switch with POE with MD's.

I've heard that some MD's have boot issues with certain switches.

Only  'real life'  experience please.

a switch should never interfere with netbooting an MD. if it does, that switch is defective and should be replaced.

Correction, I know some older Cisco's will prevent PXE booting, If it's a managed switch (which I assume it is) it has  posibilities of interfering if the config is wrong, but with that being said, most newer popular ones (If having issues), should be able to be configed to work. Hope this has helped.
