Hi I want to setup a load balance using 2 Catalyst 6500 as distribution switches and hp procurve as acces switches. I mean the computers will connected to the procurve acces switch.
Well I want to have:
distribution switch1 the root bridge for vlans 1,3,5,7,9.
distribution switch2 the root bridge for vlans 2,4,6,8,10
In attachment there is a diagram.
SO my fist Idea is to give one priority for vlans 1,3,5,7,9
and another for 2,4,6,8,10 in one catalyst and reverse priority values in the other catalyst
So catalyst 1 will be the root bridge for vlans 1,3,5,7,9 and backup bridge for vlans 2,4,6,8,10. logically Catalyst2 will be root bridge for vlans 2,4,6,8,10 and backup bridge for vlans 1,3,5,7,9.
My huge problem (among other) is how to integrate the procurve 2626?. How to configure them?
My seconf idea is MSTP. I read that this exists on Catalyst & hp procurve and it allows to create instances & joining vlans to the instances, but I am not really clear.
Thanks for your advices
