    Teamed NICs into a stacked Core switch

    Hi guys,

    sorry for the 101 questions i've been asking over the past fews days.... the info you guys are giving me is really helping.

    i do have another question tho

    i have a dell r610 with 4 1gb nic cards. i have two core switches in a stack and i want to be able to have the server connected to both physical switches in the stack for through-out and redundancy.

    after some power googlin' i think i need the switches to have a feature called VSS? to allow me to connect to two seperate switches in a stack...... The 4 nics are set as a team of 1x 4 aggregated links.

    i've drawn alittle pic (plz dont laugh LOL) can anybody shine a light on this plz?

    EDIT: the core switches are HP 5500-24G DC EI if help any

    I think VSS would be an expensive option, and imagine that Spanning Tree Protocol may very well do what you need on a more basic level.

    I posted a configuration for 5500's just yesterday that will allow you to run teamed NIc's (called aggregation in comware).
    The example is for aggregating links to other switches, but with servers you'll need to add "stp edged-port enable" as the servers are on edge ports.
