Network Switch Connections
Posted on 2016-11-30
I have 4 unmanaged gigabit switches on the network. We will call them #1, #2, #3 and "servers switch".
All 5 servers are connected to the "servers switch"
Switch #1 connects to switch #2, and switch #2 connects to switch #3. The "servers switch" is connected to switch #2.
Firewall connects to switch #3.
All workstations and network devices connect to either switch #1, #2 or #3.
The server's roles are two are file servers, two are domain controllers one of which runs license managers for various programs, and a server that stores misc data. Users access the file servers for all data.
Is this the best configuration for connecting the switches? Is there a better way to connect them?
