Currently we have 2 rotuers and 2 switches connected to each other, now I have to connect HP-switch to the rotuer_2, and for HP-switch I have to configure dot1Q (currently we are using ISL).
So in future what I want is router_1 connected to switch_1 and router_2 connected to HP-switch.
We are using HSRP between the routers. So if I change the encapsulation on router_2 to dot1Q do I have to change it on router_1 as well. Do I have to configure anything on the switch_1 so all the VLANs can talk to each other.
If your switches can trunk with ISL and dot1q you will not need to change router 1. If your switches only do one encapsulation at a time, you may have to change everything. I recommend keeping the same encapsulation type accross the network. try to keep a standard.
The trunk between switch 1 and the HP will need to become dot1q as the hp won't do ISL.
Be concious of the encapsulation capabilities of your equipment for interoperability.
