Why are you using another unmanaged switch? I setup switch1, 2, and
3.noise so that we'll have visibility as to what's connected where,
and to prevent any forwarding loops (they all run spanning tree).

There are plenty of free ports on switch1.noise (the 48-port Dell
switch towards the bottom of the rack).

Unless you really need to route to another subnet, I'd just hook up to
switch1.noise.
Let me know if I can help.

Cheers,
jof
