As I mentioned in a prior blog, Cumulus Linux on Dell Networking Switches, one benefit of running Cumulus Linux on network switches is that you can run your typical Linux commands that you’re used to running for also configuring and managing your network switches. Additionally, you can leverage the many robust Linux applications and integrate easily with a Linux environment; this will appeal to developers (especially those in devops roles) as it will allow for new innovative approaches for automation, troubleshooting, and developing/deploying network applications/services.

In this blog I demonstrate how to setup a Dell M1000e chassis with a Dell PowerEdge M620 server and two Dell MXL blade switches [FTOS 220.127.116.11]. The Dell M1000e chassis is part of a larger network composed of three Dell S4810 switches [FTOS 9.1]. Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise is installed on the server. Below is the network diagram for this lab. (more…)
In this lab I use one Cisco 2621XM [IOS 12.4(2)T], one Cisco 2621 [IOS 12.3(18)], one Cisco 3660 [IOS 12.1(1)T], one Cisco 3640 [IOS 12.1(2)T], one Cisco 3550-24PWR-SMI [IOS 12.2(44)SE6], one Dell Force10 S60 [FTOS 18.104.22.168], and one Dell Force10 S50N [FTOS 22.214.171.124] to demonstrate multi-area OSPF in a mixed environment of Cisco and Dell Force10 switches. Below is a diagram of my lab setup. (more…)
In this lab, all routers except for R4 and R5 are Cisco 3725 routers [IOS 12.4(15)T10]. Routers R4 and R5 are Cisco 7200 routers [IOS 12.4(24)T]. Below is the network diagram for this lab.
In this lab, I use three Cisco 3725 routers [IOS 12.4(15)T10] to demonstrate how to setup OSPF with multiple Areas. Below is the network diagram for this lab. (more…)
This was a quick lab I threw together which I thought was pretty cool. In this lab I use five Cisco 3725 routers [IOS 12.4(15)T10] in which I have two groups of routers each on a different subnet and running a different routing protocol. A router is used to connect the two different subnets and EIGRP redistribution and OSPF redistribution allow nodes on the two different networks running different protocols to talk to each other. Below is the network diagram of the lab setup. (more…)
