Hello.I Have two cisco catalyst 4500 (4507 R to be more specific) switches and there end all my connections from my racks. Each rack has a switch and from it i want to make an ether channel with two ports to each of my 4500 switches and load balance/failover the traffic i will get. Wich is the best method to do so?
The 2960G is not a L3 switch. If it was you could run L3 etherchannels from the 2960 switches to the 4500 switches and use equal cost load balancing.
However you can't do this because your switches are L2 only.
If your 4500 switches are connected to each other via a L3 link then you could use both uplinks from a 2960 to each 4500 to send traffic from the servers and both uplinks would be used. GLBP would be good to use on the 4500 for the server vlans redundant gateways.
If the 4500 switches are connected via a L2 trunk then your options are more limited. If the servers are all in one vlan then one of the uplinks will probably block due to STP. If you have multiple server vlans then you could set the STP root for one vlan to be one 4500 and STP root for another of the vlans to be the other 4500. In this scenario HSRP would serve you just as well for redundant gateway.
