I want to build a redundant connection to my servers.Two switch and two switch each connected to as cross connection ie redundant connection.I want to achieve Load balancing when both switch works ie Active-Active and when switch goes down other switch must continues its operation.
Can i achieve this with out using HSRP.
If required i am ready to use HSRP but first i want to achieve L2 based redundacny and failover.
So, you plan to have 4 3750 switches, configured as two stacks of two? If correct, you can configure a minimum of two link Etherchannel between the two stacks insuring there's one link per stack memember. Then dual home your servers to each stack.
As an alternative, you could place all 4 3750 switches into a single stack, and assuming your servers can Etherchannel with the stack, have each sever have a minimum of dual links to the stack, again links to different stack members.
For both of the above, HSRP would not be necessary nor direct benefit to your servers.
for server1 sw1 will be active with SW2 in standby and server2 sw2 will be ative with sw1 as standby mode.ie both in active/active in load sharing mode normaly and in failover another one switch should take full burdern
