I really like what is said around here about baystack switches. I am going to purchase the baystack 425-24T but I have a few questions first.
1. We have a HP procurve 4000m that this baystack switch will be working with. There is a 1000baseT module on this procurve switch that will be used for the backbone. The baystack 425-24T says this: "2 flexible combo uplink ports". Does this mean I can use 1 of these ports for the gigabit backbone? Or is ths a uplink port for stacking baystack switches only?
2. Will there be any problems bringing a baystack switch into a primaraly HP procurve environment? In other words is it a bad idea to mix different brands of switches in a LAN?
