Redundancy - C2960G-24TC-L

Unanswered Question

Switch1 and switch2 are uplinked on port24 on both switches in a ISL-trunk

We want NIC1 from server1 into switch1 and nic2 from server1 into switch2.

The two interfaces on the server are bounded into one virtual and has a set ip address.

I wish to accomplish redundancy to make sure traffic runs smoothly even if one of the switches should die or fail in some way.

How should I configure my two Cisco-switches to accomplish this?

The way it is now, I get a lot of 'adressflapping' errors on the ciscos' like this:

(Oct 6 12:23:11: %SW_MATM-4-MACFLAP_NOTIF: Host 0022.1983.xxxx in vlan 10 is flapping between port Gi0/24 and port Gi0/2)

Thanks,

When configuring teaming at the server side, both NICs must be connected to the same switch. Once connected to the same switch, you can configure etherchanneling in the switch.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst2960/software/release/12.2_37_se/configuration/guide/swethchl.html

Having the server connecting to 2 different switches while the NICs are teamed, it's not a supported network configuration.
