7507 to 6509

ew Network:

I have 6509 connected to (2) 3550 switches. Vlan 20 and Vlan 30

Existing Network:

Customer has an existing network with 10 token ring subnets and all connected to 7507routers and the Ethernet 1/0 is connected to 1st Cat5000 ( subnet, ServerFarm1) and Ethernet 1/1 connected to 2nd Catalyst 5000 (172.16.30. subnet, ServerFarm2)

I like to connect two networks so customer can easily migrate the servers from cat5000 to cat 3550 switches.

This is what I am going to do move subnets and to 6509 switches. Connect 7507s Ethernet 1/0 and 1/1 to 6509 respectively as new subnets for example, and to 6509 logical interfaces, int vlan 100 and int vlan 200.

Create vlan 20 and 30 as well in Cat5000s, and then connect to 3550. Now any users behind 7507s will be able to reach server farms from 7507 to 6509 to 3550s and finally to cat5000s.

Two question:

1) Will it work?

2) The link ports on7507 1/0 and 1/1 to 6509 would be trunk ports or just regular ports.

For example, on 6509

I will create,

vlan 100 and 200 and move two port 3/1 and 3/2 to vlan 100 and 200 respectively

Router Config:

Int vlan 100

ip address to 7507 E1/0

int vlan 200

ip address to 7507 E1/1

Re: 7507 to 6509

1) Yes, this will work.

2) It need not be a trunk port as long as you use routing on 6509
