i just wanted to know how hard is it to use Cisco 2960 as access switches with Dell Force10 core switch. how hard is it when it comes to configuration and deployment.
I have multiple 2960X connected to my 4048's.
Not too hard at all . In my case I made sure the Dell's were running RSTP and had correct priorities to make the the root bridge, Used lacp to form the trunk ports.
