 AN!Wiki :: How To :: Ethernet Switch Configuration

The Anvil! is agnostic on ethernet switches. The only requirements is that there are two switches, that VLAN traffic can flow between them, and that one switch doesn't get interrupted when the peer switch connects, disconnects, or gets replaced.

Ideally, each switch should have redundant power. If this is not possible, split the first switch to run off the first UPS or PDU, and the second switch to run off the other UPS and PDU. Ideally, setup an LACP or other form of redundant connection between the two switches and the rest of the network.

We've got notes on how to configure some brands of switches. If you've used other brands, we'd love to add your notes to our list.


Any questions, feedback, advice, complaints or meanderings are welcome.
