VSS between sites?

Unanswered Question

I have been asked to research running VSS between 2 6509's between 2 sites?


I am just going through the whitepapers and need to establish the link requirements for such a setup.


Is it a valid setup?


Thanks

Hi Roger,


First of all the Cisco VSS for 6500 series allows for the combination of two switches into a single, logical network entity from the network control-plane and management perspectives. To the neighboring devices, the Cisco Virtual Switching System appears as a single, logical switch

So as per above the two switches needs to be connected back to back and will be appear and manage as a single logical switch.


But in your case you are saying VSS between two different sites (i guess two geographical locations). Is that what you are trying to achieve?


Please rate the helpfull posts.

Naidu.
