I am about to implement an iSCSI solution on our network. The thing that is bothering me though is that we are only using 1 switch from the SAN to node connections. Since each node has 2 NICs, is anyone able to give me some tips on how to set up a second switch and use the second NIC in such a way that if the first switch were to die, then the second switch would take over?
Maybe in any case, even if there was a failover solution, would data loss still occur due to the "switch over" time required?
O/S is Centos 5.5
