We have a couple of linux servers that we want to interconnect using switches. We need 3 VLANs of which only the production VLAN needs redundancy and load balancing. And it should easily be expandable with more servers.
Our proposed setup contains of 2 stacked HP 2960G-24TC-L (stacked using 2 trunked connections). Each server has 1 teamed pair of nics with one nic going to switch-1 and the other to switch-2. These 2 ports should be trunked (trunked over 2 stacked switches). This should be the default VLAN. Next to that each server connects 2 more nics for both other VLANs (1 per VLAN, no specialities here).
My question is if this is going to work and if this is matching our needs? Can ports on 2 stacked 2960G be configured as trunked ports to serve a teamed set of nics for load balancing and redundancy?
And is our proposed setup a proper way to achieve our goals?
Thanks for listening and feedback,
P.S. I already learned that the HP ProCurves are not able to tackle this.
