For this migration you first need to assign IP addresses to your connections between switches. This could be /30 (or /31, if supported) subnets. You should also consider running some dynamic routing protocol such as OSPF between switches.


Hope this helps.

Hi


Thanks for replying.yeh we are planning to run OSPF.as u said that we need to have ip address configured on the swithces so that means that we need to have a MSFC at each site am i right.


Thanks

Yes, you will need routing capabilities at each site.


Thanks.
