Hi everyone, I have dual 6120 interconnects, each of which have two uplink ports. I also have two Catalyst 4900M switches to uplink to. So I plan to configure both 802.1q and 802.3ad on each of the 6120 uplink pairs. My question relates to the physical cabling, bearing in mind ESX will be running on the blades.
Would you cable both the uplink ports on interconnect 1 to switch 1? Or would you cross-connect them to both switch 1 and switch 2?
As per this article I see ESX does not support splitting a port channel across two switches, but I am unsure how the presence of the 6120s affects this. Can anyone suggest the best way of doing the cabling based on the kit I have? Thanks.
