I have two x250e-48p switches in bldg A using vlan Alpha and one in bldg B using vlan Beta.
The two in bldg A (sw1A & sw2A ) are not stacked but connected by a cat5 cable connecting ports 48 on each. The vlan Alpha is the same but each switch has it's own vlan ip address.(126.96.36.199/24 & 188.8.131.52/24) respectfully.
When sw1A failed we moved the cable connecting bldg2 sw1B from sw1A port 47 to sw1B port 47,. Both ports are members of vlan Alpha and tagged for vlan Beta but machines in sw1B could not route to anything in the vlan Alpha.
I'm thinking I have a route issue that I cannot resolve. Perhaps a making the switches in BldgA is the best or only solution?
Can someone suggest a way to make physically moving the cable work?
