Hi all, we are in process of designing a new distrubution layer for the servers etc, however we have 2 computer rooms. we want to use layer 3 between the distribution and core. But we want to keep the same ip subnets in both computer rooms for the servers etc. What would we do here? use the dist switches as a gatway for the servers, using hsrp,vrrp etc? then would we link the 2 dist switches direct together using layer 2 or 3, I would think layer 2 so we can have the same subnets still in both rooms? then would we use l3 ports to the core switch say on a /30 network and advertise the vlans etc from the dist switches?
can anyone tell me the best design for this?
