2 Layer 3 "Routing" Switchs 1 LAN : Need advice
Having mostly only ever put in one router or L3 routing switch I was wondering about having 2 L3 routing switches in the same LAN (6 VLANS) in order to provide redundancy in case one fails.
I am using HP 2824's is there anything special I should do before enabling routing on the second switch or will it "just work".
Both the switches are linked via a 2Gb copper backbone as well as other multi redundant links through other switches.
Are we now looking at using route advertisment? RIPv1, v2, OSPF, etc.
Is there any real need to do this or am i just going over kill <- there is always a chance of this :D
