HPE 2530 et FORCE10 CORE

Hello,

I have  4 switchs HP 2530 to connect with 2 links SFP+  optical fiber on a Core network Forces 10 Dell made up of 2 CORE. Which is best topology to be implemented

CORE1 -> SW1 ->SW2 ->SW3 -> SW4 ->CORE2

or

CORE1&2 -> SW1 ->SW2 ->SW3  ->SW4

Thanks

I'd go for:
CORE1 -> SW1 ->SW2 ->SW3 -> SW4 ->CORE2
assuming Core1 and Core2 are interconnected, a ring is formed, and a power outage on single switch will not render other switches useless

I'm plum for...

CORE1 -> CORE2 (link the cores)

and 

 

CORE1 -> SW1 -> SW2 -> SW3 -> SW4 -> CORE2

  • Make sure that you enable spanning-tree and position the STP root bridge on core 1, with a backup on core 2.
  • Run VRRP between the core switches to handle routing failover.

Regards,

 

Pete

Or even patch each 2530 independently to both Cores. (Same comments about spanning tree root and backup apply)

Core1&2 are link (not stack)

VRRP is enable

but can you give me the syntax to position Rootbridge en core 1 and backup on core2 ?

Thanks
