Currently, we have 3 3com switches with a gigabit uplink to our 4006 switch and all of my servers (that can do gigabit) plug into one of these three. I suggested, we replace these one of 10/100 switches with a new gigabit module (48 port) for our 4006 and plug all of the servers into that. Another admin I work with, disagrees and doesn't see the benefit to doing that. I am just starting in the network portion (systems right now) but this sounds like a good idea.
It depends on the trafic your servers are supposed to handle, ie: the number of users allowed to access to each server.
For a server offering services to all the users (as mail server), your idea to connect it to the 4005 is good because of his performances.
But for a server offering services to a particular group of users, it is preferable to leave him connected to the same acces switch (3Com switch in your case) in order to keep this trafic located on the same switch
We have 3 identical switches configured by someone else and would like to claim some of the Gigabit ports(G1/G2/G3/G4) for use on servers. When we try to change the wiring and configuration, we run in to connectivity issues. Attached is a des...
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
