Hoping someone could shed some light on this subject as extensive reading doesn't give a clear answer.
I need to have resilience in case of switch failure and also use the bandwidth
I have 2 x HP 3800 switches. I have my core HP servers in the same rack. I plan on using 1 server NIC for each switch (using 2 in total) I will be bonding the server NICs using mode 4 (they are Linux servers)
Question: Do I need to use stacking modules or can I just run 1gb connection between 2 of the switch ports to 'join' the 2 switches?
Does using stacking ports make the resilience better?
