I'm looking for suggestions on the best way to configure failover networking using 4 Cisco IGESM switches in the 4 bays. Currently, I have all 4 ports on each switch configured for GEC, but if a switch fails, there is no failover to one of the other switches. Switch1 is for Service Console, Switch2 is for the VMs, Switch3 for iSCSI, and Switch4 for vMotion.
I would like to make better use of these switches by having them provide a failover patch for the others.
