RSTP and 3560 with stack cable question

Do I have problems when I'm running on all the switches RSTP (see fig) ? CORE switches are 6500 connected via a channel, 3560 are stacked with yellow cable and one 3560 is connected via fiber to CORE1 and the other 3560 to CORE2

CORE1 |==================| CORE2

3560 |---------stack cable----------| 3560

Re: RSTP and 3560 with stack cable question

There should be no problem running rpvst . The 3560's are not stacked , they don't have a stack cable like the 3750's do . They are probably using a sfp gbic cable to daisy chain the switches together .

Thanks Glen,

Now I have a confirmation what I was thinking. The cable is the yellow one with the 2 SFPs
