Cross 3560 Trunking

Hi Guys,

I am configuring 2x 3560's to work with VmWare.

in gig0/1 i have vmnic0/vmnic1 (service console) on both switches, now normally i would have them on a port-channel but when doing it over two 3560's im not sure the best way to do this?

We have only ever had one 3560 and this is setup with port-channel as both vmnic0/1 are plugged into the same switch.

Any guidance on this would be appreciated.

Do you have one NIC going to one of the 3560 and the other going to the second 3560?

IF so, won't work.  That scheme would work if, for example, you had a pair of 3750 in a stack.

Is there anything else that we can do?

Or would we just leave them as trunk ports and use vmware to manage the nics? Im guessing that with Vmware it will know about the second nic and this will stop any network loops etc?
