Hi Andrew
Thanks for your qick response ,Yes we have fully license fot eack of services.
So the only things must consider it is network reduncy but please keep it in mind that we have already 2960s which work in layer2 that we cant use them as active active so we need to use a 3750 switch to set ip in layer3 .is it ok to use it 3750 instead of 2960 by changing our core switch to yhe 4500 10g ?
