Summary

This chapter provided configuration examples for connecting switches running both native and hybrid software configurations, and offers examples of both Layer 3 and Layer 2 connectivity between switches. The material in this chapter can serve as a reference for initial configuration of either hybrid or native switches, and illustrates some options and best practices when configuring access layer ports, trunks, channels, and point-to-point Layer 3 links. In each of the examples, no logical Layer 2 loops were created, so spanning-tree issues are avoided. Avoiding spanning tree is not always possible, so you should reference Chapter 10 of this book when attempting to optimize and troubleshoot a network with logical loops.
