Trank will disbale the current traffic flow ???
Posted on 2010-09-06
I have two manageable switches in two server racks located within some distant, and I have RJ45 up-link in between these two switches which is currently operational.
SW-A fixed in RACK-A
SW-B fixed in RACK-B
just a up-link
(RACK-A) SW-A <----------------------------------------> SW-B (RACK-B)
I'm planning to make this link as the Trunk link since I have some Static VLANs to be distributed among these two server racks and most importantly please note I'm a remote user and I can connect only from SW-A end. If some thing goes wrong the current traffic flow will be terminated between two racks which will totally disconnect SW-B and with entire RACK-B servers.
Static VLAN trunk
(RACK-A) SW-A <==========================> SW-B (RACK-B)
I have below queries and can you please advise for the same;
1. When I convert the SW-A port to the Trunk link it will disable the traffic flow to the SW-B ?
2. If so, do I need to configure SW-B first ?
3. What is the practical scenario of doing this ?
SW-A = Linksys SRW2024
SW-B = HP Procure 2610
Thanks a lot for your time !
