Connect two Cisco 2960G Switches with Smartports
Posted on 2008-10-13
Our main switch is a Cisco 2960G-48TC. Connected to it via fiber are four Cisco 2960G-24TC switches. Due to expansion, we added a second Cisco 2960G-48TC next to the main switch. The vendor that we purchased it from installed the switch and all the tech did to connect the two 2960G-48TC switches together (via ethernet) was to go into smartports and change two of the ports (on each switch) to "Trunk".
I asked about load sharing and he said the smartports would take care of it. Is this a correct statement and is this the best way to connect the two switches together?
