Lab gone crazy
My desktop lab at work has grown from a single 3945 for testing configurations and STIG compliance to the monstrosity listed below that was mostly "retrieved" from the "discard" pile:
3945 /w SMX ES3-24P .... Hub for DMVPN, CUCM router
2811 (need to dig up a couple Gigabit HWIC cards) Spoke 1
2801 (need to dig up a couple Gigabit HWIC cards) Spoke 2
898EA (this is a cool little router) Spoke 3
3560 PoE8 - connected to spoke 3
3560 V2 24P - connected to Spoke 1
3750E 48p - connected to Spoke 2 and trunked to 3750G 48p
3750G 24p PoE - Trunked to the NME in the 3945
3750G 48p PoE - connected to Spoke 2 and trunked to 3750E 48p
I have setup DMVPN with multiple gre tunnels, CUCM, VLAN craziness, and just about anything that pops into my twisted mind....lol. Currently waiting for the ASA5505's to find their way to the shelf. I need to get a couple more 7945 phones to complete my call manager setup and some more RAM for the 2801. Never a boring moment at my desk. Complete overkill but I am having fun!!
Oh yeah, I hate Cisco 3850 switches!! 3 hours to complete IOS upgrade (3.7.5 to 16.6.6) is just silly.
Sorry no pics because no phones allowed in the work space.
Work smarter NOT harder! Semper Gumby!
