Multiple enclosure VC domains

Dear All,


I am aware that the c3000 enclosures do not support multiple enclosure VC domains, but if I were to create 2 seperate VC domains (one on each) and join them together using an uplink I would get connectivity between the 2, but is there away around the problem that servers in domain 1 could not use an external uplink on domain 2 (and domain 2 servers could not use an external uplink on domain 1)?  Is there anyway around this issue with the c3000 enclosure?

no, you would really need to uplink both c3000 VC domains to an upstream switch and allow that upstream switch to forward traffic between the domains while allowing connectivity from each c3000 out to the rest of the network.
