I have a situation where the Sun server using Quad FE card with Trunking Software 1.20 above connected to two Catalyst 5509 switches, with 2 connections to each switch.
The Sun Trunking feature is able to aggregate 4 ports as a single connection. So, my question is, am I able to configure the Catalyst 5509 switches to run in single FEC so I could get the Sun server load-balance across two switches? If not, what would be the situation like (create loop)?
Anyone come across this situation, please advise. Thank you.
So, on the Sun machine if I configure as a single ip address link (FEC), and STP enable on the both Cat5K switches. Would it be able to do the failover function? And how should I configure the FEC on the Cat5K switch, would it be able the form the FEC with the Sun machine Quad FE card?
