GK & controlled/non-controlled trunks


i have a ccm cluster in site 1 and another ccm cluster in site 2, each site has 2801 gateway, and the two gateways are connected point-to-point to each other, i want to configure a gatekeeper and a gatekeeper controlled trunk between these two clusters:

1: can i choose any 2801 gateway among these two 2801 gateways to be a gatekeeper?

if yes and i chose site 1 2801 Router to be the gatekeepr then the remote gateway of course can register with this gatekeeper, but can this 2801 GW on this site (site 1) register with itself, since it's a site 1's GW and it's a gatekeeper at the same time?

2: do i have to deploy another gateway to to act as the gatekeeper?

3: is it better in this case to choose a gatekeeper controlled trunk or to choose a non-gatekeeper controlled trunk?

Re: GK & controlled/non-controlled trunks

Before you go ahead and do that, have you considered what exactly is the advantage of a gatekeeper with just two gateways ?

yes you can have a combined GK/GW, but have to replace the image, add configuration, I connot see any advantage in doing that.

Re: GK & controlled/non-controlled trunks

so u recommend using non-gatekeeper controlled trunk?

Yes, I reccommend a simple non-GK configuration that most of the times gives the bester result.
