Here is the present situation:
6509A --- 4500
||``````````````| where ` = blank spaces
Link to 6509B is blocked by STP. Link is L2. HSRP runs between 6509s with L2-etherchannel.
- I am wondering if L3 links between 4500-6509 and 6509-6509 is better ?? I mean by defining:
a. connected Gig ports of 4500 and 6509s as L3 ports with IP addresses in the same subnet
b. at 4500, define a default gateway to 6509 hsrp address
c. between 6509s defining a L3 PAgP etherchannel.
Whats your advice ?
