VLANs / switch/router question
Posted on 2011-05-05
I am little confused about the following scenario and I would like for someone to provide some explanation:
-2 Cisco switches: SW1 and SW2
-1 Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series
-SW1 and SW2 are connected via fiber to the 6500
-3 servers : server1 is connected to VLAN20 SW1, server2 is connected to VLAN21 SW2 and server3 is connected to vlan21 on SW1
That being said, if SERVER1 vlan21 SW2 sends traffic to SERVER2 vlan21 SW3, would the traffic be routed to the 6500 and then to go to the switch?
Or basically since SERVER1 and SERVER2 ports are configured on the same VLAN 21 the traffic will go from SW1 to SW2 through the trunk port without going to the 6500 Core Router?
