I have two dell 6224 switches that I want to connect to a Cisco 7204. I would like to connect the 6224's to the 7204 on the same LAN. I also have multiple linux servers that are bonded and have connections to each 6224 switch. The 6224's have multiple vlans on them. I am trying to provide some sort of redundancy in case on of the switches goes down. I do not want to do any sort of load balancing to/from the servers, I would prefer to know all traffic is on switch1 and if that failed switch two would take over. The configuration looks like this
My question is will this configuration work? Can I have the same configuration on the switches? Do I need to be running VRRP on the switches?
