New Cisco L2 Catalyst 2960S supports static routes

It's long overdue! Finally, we can now configure static route on our newly shipped Cisco Catalyst 2960S L2 stackable switches. By default, you can't configure any routes on it besides the "ip default-gateway". Hence, you have to switch the sdm template from the default desktop to lanbase-routing as follows:

Switch# config t
Switch(config)# sdm prefer lanbase-routing
Switch(config)# reload

Do note that the lanbase-routing template is only supported on C2960S LAN-based image and not on LAN-lite image. For more information, refer to this Cisco documentation.

  1. According to figure Cisco Catalyst 2960, 2960-C and 2960-S Series Switches should be the hotest products for small business recently!
