I am setting up a system which involves two HP Blade enclosures with 4 blade servers each, that connect to two HP Procurve switches which then connect to load balancers, and then to a firewall. Diagram Attached.
Each enclosure has two switches on two modules as showin in the diagram.
1) As you can see i used a simulator to plan spanning tree in advanced, in fact i lowered the spanning tree priority of the HP switches so that all their ports are all active. Do you think this is good?
2) I am not familar with Blade module switches, am i correct in thinking of them as normal switces connected to each other as in the diagram?
3) Do you thing the setup is correct? Am i missing somthing here?
