Re: Backup Core switch

Thank you. 

 

Hypothetically if i bought another 3750 and kept my current cabled network how would i configure fail over?

 

Would i stack the switches and set one in standby with another routing port configured and patched into a bridge connection on the sonicwall?

 

what configuration would i need on the two core switches

for example:

This is for  alive environment and adding additional cabling to the infrastructure isn't a option at the moment. The 2960 the core is currently connected to isnt a issue.

 

I do have servers and end devices connected to this Core switch so at least services like the phone system will be operation for some users.

Re: Backup Core switch

Yes you can stack them, or you can seperate them depends on your requirement, as long as resilient link you have and routing protocol understand your network. the traffic automatically failover.

 

if you have ip service license, i suggest to run ospf between core and switches, if you have base only, then L2 should be good with trunk port.
