Hello all, after much google'ing and searching through this forum I must post.
I have somehow managed to load balance two ports on a 2950 to ports on two different 3560G switches. The result is what I wanted but how I achieved this I have no idea.
The attached image shows a screenshot of the current topology as seen from the Cisco Network Assistant. As you can see ClientSwitch1 (circled in red) has both links to ServerSwitch1 and ServerSwitch2 in FWD state. The other client switches each have 1 port forwarding and one blocking.
Keeping 1 port in BLK mode makes sense as STP will do this to prevent a loop. It's obvious though looking at ClientSwitch1 that a load balanced path to multiple switches is possible.
My question to the group is, "How can I accomplish what appears to be accomplished on ClientSwitch1? That is, what needs to be done to have the rest of the client switches have active/active paths to the two server layer switches?"
My CCNA expired years ago and now I am again one of those fools stumbling his way around while our organization is looking for a Sys-Admin to hire. Anyone interested in moving to Twin Falls, Idaho?
