Hello Experts,

We have two buildings 1KM away from each other.

At Building 1, we have 2 6500 Switches in existence.

At Building 2, we are going to install the switches such as follows

Ground Floor - 1 x WS-C3750X-24S-E
                        2 x WS C3560X- 48S-P
First Floor        2x WS-C3560X-48T-L

Second Floor   2xWS-C3560X-48T-L

All these switches will be connected to Cisco Fiber Switch ( Ground Floor)

Fiber Switch will be connected to Main Data Center Fiber 6500 Switch.
These switches will be in separate VTP domain.

I need the help
