Problem wirh Backup LAN, protected/isolated ports, tagged uplink

Hey there,

 

we have a little problem with a setup we came up with recently... Maybe you guys find a solution? (see attached file)

 

We have 2 seperated rooms for our servers that have to backup to the storage in the other room.

In every room there's a procurve 2810 24port switch. The machines must not access themselves over the backup vlan,

but they have to access the storage in the other room. Easy, just use protected-ports for the servers.

 

The problem is now, that the uplink can't be a portected port and so servers from room 1 can access servers from room 2 over the not protected uplink port. I have been testing for a while now, but no combination of protected ports and vlans brings the effect we want to have.

 

See the attached file for further details.

 

Thx for your help guys,

cheers,

dash

Hi, configure each server firewall! so that communication between them isn't allowed.
