Home Network: Broadcast storm
Well I wasnt going to make a post, but I redid by cables on my switches for better redundancy. When I booted up my devices I noticed that all of my switches except my new 3550 were flashing like crazy. This brought one thing to mind, a broadcast storm.
So this post is just the process that I did to correct the problem.
PingI couldnt SSH from my PC to the devices, so I issused a few pings to see confirm what was going on;
Checking devicesSo I SSH'ed to the nearest device I could and SSH'ed from there to APHRODITE. I issused the show processes cpu command to confirm what I thought was happening;
Remove previous configurations
I went on each switch and removed the previous settings and reset them to default.Which included things like portfast and BPDU guard.
While this was going on I was getting flapping messages like these;
Hooray and no more flashing lights =) It was my own fault for forgetting about the previous settings, which was causing alot of havoc.
