Hello experts. I have configured VLAN's to get experience with Vlaning as well as of course take advantage of isolating traffic and making voice reliable. It is working good but now I am introducing a couple of gig switches to help expanding needs of 1 gig ports on our servers.
Currently the core is utilized for trunks and all of my servers but I have grown and run out of ports.
Want to change the core to be strickly a trunking routing switch. First I assume this is really the intent of a core switch and second it solves the port issues.
What I am having trouble with and am asking for help with is how to setup my trunks properly. If I have enough ports do I have a separate trunk for each of my VLAN's. Or do I group ports together to create a large single trunk.?
I only required 4 physical trunks and I have 24 ports to work with on my core.
Here are the trunk requirements
Main location has 1 core switch and a stack of three 10/100 (2 gig ports each)for clients and end devices
Second location 1 10/100 switch (2 gig ports)
Third Location 2 stacked 10/100 switch (2 gig ports each) for clients and devices and 1 GIG port switch for services in this location (non critical)
Forth Location is the new 1 gig switch that I want to utilize for all my servers. (same physical location as core)
Thanks in advance
