Question about Allied Telesyn AT 8024GB Networking Switch
Backgound. We have an internal network with 2 buildings. There is fibre connecting the 2 buildings with an AT-8024GB switch at each end. In the second building, the servers are in the first, we have been experiencing regular connection dropouts. Rebooting the switch in the second building has temporarily fixed the problem. To my understanding when the switches were put in there was no configuraion done and I was wondering if one needs to be set as a master. My understanding is they were simply connected, turned on and the data started to flow. When there is a network drop out in the second building all users in the second building are effected but none in the first.
Yes, you are correct in stating that one has to be the master, and one needs to be the slave. Normally, if you go to the manufactures website, and look for documentation on that model of switch, it will walk you through step by step on installation and re-installation. I have personally downloaded documentation from the Cisco website for setting up a large network. Try that, if you have further questions, please respond back.
