Collapsed Backbone & Cat Express 500

Unanswered Question
Jun 14th, 2007


I have a collapsed backbone design with a single C3750G as a core switch and 6 Cat Express 500 switches as access switches.

Q1. Is it possible to cascade the 6 CE 500 access switches using their uplink ports ?

The first and the sixth access switch will have their uplinks to the core.

Q2. If I do a 802.1q trunk on all the cascade links, what are the spanning tree implications ? Which ones will block ? How do I get around this problem ?

Any advice is much appreciated.



I have this problem too.
