Flex Links

Unanswered Question
Jul 23rd, 2009

Hello,

I want to implement a backup link between switches, one link will connect the switches directly and the backup link will connect the switches through a switch and two AP's. Because of design reasons, I can't enabling STP.

I'm looking for something similar to Flex Links, but, to use Flex Links, the 2960 switch must be running the LAN Base Image, and the switches that I want to configure are running the LAN Lite Image.

Do you know something similar to Flex Links that I can use with Catalyst 2960 Lan Lite image switches?

Thanks in advance.

I have this problem too.

Hello Cesar,

>> Do you know something similar to Flex Links that I can use with Catalyst 2960 Lan Lite image switches?

Unfortunately no.

I would consider if STP can be used but you have already checked this.

So I would suggest an upgrade to LAN base image.

Hope to help

Upgrading from LAN Lite to LAN Base is equal to hardware replacement :-(

Hello Ingolf,

I see but if STP cannot be used what option is left to manage a L2 redundant topology ?

it should keep shut the secondary link and manually try to enable it when primary fails and then when primary link is restored what happens ?

Hope to help

Giuseppe
