I have two 6509 Switches at the Core working redundant to each other. My servers would be directly connecting to one of the module in the Core. I have some application servers which are using Microsoft NLB. As of now they are connected to one 3560 switch where i am able to do NLB using static entry. Now i want to connect the servers to the core switch, for redundancy i would like to connect all primary servers on core 1 and all redundant servers on core 2. There is a l2 trunk (etherchannel) is there between these two core switcehs. Is it possible to connect 2 servers in 2 different switches and do the load balancing.
If your going for redundant connections than yes, You can set the NIC for the feature and plug them on seperate switches. If your going for redundancy than you would have to bond the NICS to the same switch and channel them for load balanceing.

decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
