Interconnect cisco 3020 blade swtich

I have three blades and 6 cisco 3020 switch, but i dont have any cisco layer 3 switch. Is it possible for me to interconnect the 6 cisco 3020? Is it possible for me to connect cisco 3020 to catalyst 2900 series XL? My goal is actualy to make the three blades as 1 cluster and able to interact with each other. What option do i have?

Re: Interconnect cisco 3020 blade swtich

You can interconnect them via the uplinks in a psuedo ring. Each 3020 has 8 GE uplinks, so you can send four left and four right and have a 4GE ring between the switches. Clustering is not supported on 3020s. We have a new feature which is called VBS (Virtual Blade Switch) which allows you to connect up to 9 switches together via two ring ports. However this feature is only available on the newer CBS3120 switches.
