A stealthy question to be sure. Let's say I create a cluster of 4 2960-24Port switches with a cluster master 3560-24Port. I now have 4 switches that I can control with one IP address. So -- do these switches really now act as a single (stacked?) switch?
Can I create an etherchannel by using ports 1-2 of all four of the member switches, thus having an aggregate 8 port etherchannel? That is my main dilema, wanting to create an etherchannel across disparate switches. If that is possible, the fun can begin?
Re: Just what can I do with a cluster of switches?
Cross stack Etherchannel is only supported on the 3750 series when they are stacked. It is also supported on the 6500 series when they form a VSS pair (similar to 3750 stack)
Thanks. I didn't get that from the SW configuration guide (or couldn't find it explicitly), so a concise answer (no) is perfect. With my current hardware I guess a re-configuration of the physical topology is due. I appreciate everyones quick replies.
