we have implemented NLB on the SGI Server running IRIX OS, it works fine. the connectivity is 2 NIC connected on 3750-1(ruuning HSRP),now if i connect 1 of NIC in to the other switch 3750-2(running HSRP) will the NLB workz & will i get the 2Gbps throughput, according to me, i don't think so.
Think, it should work, check out the following explanation to avoid single point of failure :
Create a subnet that spans two switches and home half of the NLB cluster to each switch. The objective is typically to create a LAN with no single points of failure. To this end you will also need two router uplinks and have one switch uplink to one router. You also need to run a redundant routing protocol such as HSRP for failover of the router links. Finally you will need two cross-over links between the switches (otherwise the cross-over cable is a single point of failure). Each switch has two paths off the network: one via the router it is linked to (which is used by default) and one through the other switch. In this configuration, the loss of a router (or link to a router) causes the affected switch to use the cross link to ship its traffic off the LAN. The loss of a switch cuts the cluster capacity in half.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
