SSG5 and DELL-Switch

Hello,

 

we have 2 SSG5 in a HA-Cluster and want to change from some old Netgear-Switches to DELL-Switch (S4820T). When I connect one of the SSG to the Switch I get no connect. Do I have to configure the ports in a special way?

You shouldn't have to configure them a special way.  Are the Dell switches 10/100 or 10/100/1000 or 1G only?  Do you get a link light?

That's what I expected. But it doesn't work.

 

The Switch is 100 up to 10GB

 

Yes, I get a Link-Light but no traffic. The Port is up/up on the Switch

I had to set the Speed on the Switch static to 100. It was not able to autonegotiate

What model is the old Netgear?

 

They make managed switches and this may have vlan configuration and trunk ports that you would have to match on your Dell switch (assuming it is also a managed switch).
