How to create a fail-proof edge-switch?
Posted on 2008-06-11
I currently have an HP Procurve 2650 sitting at the edge of the network, which basically takes in one fiber feed from our uplink provider. Most servers are then connected to this Procurve.
Currently, we have a requirement for a new Gigabit switch. So I was wondering how we can actually get the Gigabit switch to also provide us a fail-proof solution. So if the 2650 fails, network stays up using the other switch until we get a replacement 2650.
