I have a Windows 2000 Server with Two NICs and have Two Switches (Catalyst 2950T-24)...Can I implement EtherChannel b/w them? If Yes then how/commands needed.
Actually I don't want to connect both Cables from server to One single Switch... but I want to connect one cable with One switch and other cable with Another Switch...If this...then how I can create EtherChannel with only one link (i.e. single cable connecting Windows Server with Catalyst Switch).
What I would suggest is that you 'team' your server's NIC cards and implement HSRP between your two switches. This way even if one of your switch fails you would still be on the network, or even if one of the switch goes down.
How to go about teaming would depend on the brand of your NICs.
HSRP is for redundancy and RSTP is for the loop avaoidance as well as fast convergence ...HSRP will be usefull for the highavaibility option in you network....so if you are looking for fast convergence then RSTP is good...but you cannot have comparision of HSRP and RSTP both are different working technology...
HSRP is layer-3 protocol, therefore only available on multilayer switches only (at least Cat 3560 with Enhanced Image). So, no, Cat 2900 series (Cat 2955, 2960, etc.) do not support HSRP.
I'm not aware of EtherChannel support on any platform other than Cisco, since EtherChannel is a Cisco proprietary protocol. However, at the very least, multiple identical NICs with the correct driver should support LACP (IEEE 802.3ad), which is the standards-based protocol for link bundling/aggregation.
Now, link bundling is only possible between two nodes. In your case, between your Windows server and ONE of the switches. You can NOT bundle links across two physical switches (except for Cat 3750 configured in a stack, but that's another story!).
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
