              |____________MDS SW02__________Storage

1 . what type connection we need to config MDS swtiches ?

2. How Sw02 know when sw01 fails, need to run any protocol or track any inferface?

3. Any doc for Cisco Basic best practices for MDS 9148 switch?

Two New MDS 9148 - redundancy

Hi Sankar,

You will want to setup two seperate fabrics like this:

A path loss will be be handled by the operating system's multipathing software.

The config guides are here:

Some whitepapers that may help are here (more for larger designs):
