We are in the process of creating another data center about 15 miles from our current site. We are getting 1 Gig optimum E-line which is a
Layer 2 multipoint-to-multipoint service and another 10 gig dark fiber. Both lines already supports layer 2 connectivity between sites but our vendor keeps on exisiting that we need OTV to extend Layer 2 to the new data center. I'm reading a lot about OTV and the only big thing was that it can transport layer 2 to layer 3 in between data center. Do we really need this feature in or Nexus? Will it really benifit our organization it we can already provide layer 2 connectivity in between datacenter without OTV?
Iwant to be able to give the vendor a good explanation on why we don't need it. My manager liked the idea and willing to spend $30000 for license. He said that it takes some of the layer 2 issues like STP and stuff. I hope I get more feedback especially to those that have use it an people who are extending vlans in between OTV and their experience. Cisco says that it's easier to manage than traditional layer 2 protocols.
We have 3 identical switches configured by someone else and would like to claim some of the Gigabit ports(G1/G2/G3/G4) for use on servers. When we try to change the wiring and configuration, we run in to connectivity issues. Attached is a des...
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
