I'm currently having difficulty determining the best way to connect a Dlink DGS-3420-52T switch stack to a IBM B50G switch stack.
I have two IBM B50G switches stacked together, which then connect to our firewall and then out to the internet.
I have 5 D'Link xStack DGS-3420 series switches stacked together in a ring topology. What is the best way to connect these 5 D'Link DGS-3420 series switches to the IBM B50G stack?
Is LACP (Link Aggregation Control Protocol) going to be my best best?
How do I spread the uplink ports across the D'Link stack?
Is trying to connect these two separate stacks together a bad idea in the first place?
Any help at all would be really appreciated.
