Please see attached visio. Existing tab shows the switches in their current configuration using uplinks.
Using only 2 new switches (a pair of 2960s in a stack) I would like to add resilience as shown. Is this possible or do I need something different?
Thanks for any time and advice.
Other suggestions to use existing switches very welcome to improve resilience of a single point of failure.
By the way, forgot to mention that if you are indeed using 2950 or 2960 switches as your aggregate switches, forget about Etherchannel because it won't work. Etherchannel would work if your uplink switches is one logical switch. Like I mentioned in previous post, only the 2960S and 3750/3750E/3750X are capable of doing that because of the SmartStack technology.
There are difficulties with Etherchannel when you use Gigastacking GBIC and/or switch clustering.
