because of dead port were we pushed to replace our Linksys/Cisco SR2016 in datacenter.
So we looked to the stock of our supplier and the only interesting switch they had was the Cisco SLM2024 Smart switch - so we got it.
I went to the datacenter and configured (set the IP) and replaced the switch on Saturday night and ever since then have we got great trouble with it. Most of the time it works fine, but time to time it falls down for 1-20 minutes giving about 90% packetloss to all the connected servers - and when it is fine, the switch is working completely fine.
The other switch we have there is Linksys/Cisco SRW2016 and if I switch all the cables from the SLM2024 to this SRW2016, everything works fine... I'm pretty sure there were no loops.
The uplink cable goes to Catalyst 37xx family switch...
I asked the tech support of the telehouse if they haven't had similar problems in past, but they say they didn't - and I would like to be completely sure the problem is in the switch before I'll return it to the supplier (because I'm not completely sure how should I demonstrate it).
Thanks for your opinions!
