Greetings, im looking to go through my CCNP soon and im putting together some theoretical designs to help in my study.
At present im looking at switch topology designs and uplinks between switches specifically core and distribution.
Reading the Cisco material i understand that links between core and distribution aswell as core to core links should be layer 3 combined with routing protocols as per the visio diagram, could someone let me know if this design would be feasible.
I have configured Routed Physical Layer 3 P2P Interfaces on each switch and defined SVI's for each Vlan on the distribution switches. Both networks are then advertised using EIGRP.
One thing i was struggling with was should i have the same Vlans on different distribution switches would Layer 2 trunks be required between distribution switches or can this be handled at Layer 3?
