Problem: I would like to connect our 3845 MPLS router into two 3560 switches for redundancy.
Current scenario: We currently have ge0/0 from the 3845 connected only to 3560-1. There is a 1Gig link between the 3560-1 and 3560-2. Each of the 3560's then has a separate path back to our main office.
Desired scenario: Utilize both ge0/0 and ge0/1 ports on 3845 with ge0/0 going to 3560-1 switch and 3845 port ge0/1 going to 3560-2 switch to provide better redundancy.
What is the best way to accomplish this. We currently have a static route pointing to ge0/0. Should I simply create another static route pointing to ge0/1 with a higher AD or should I set IP address of ge0/0 and ge0/1 to the same address and configure one as a backup with the backup interface command or is there a much better way?
