    Hello Group,

    What's the best way to create High Availability utilizing a couple
    switches and NIC bonding? I'm looking at "Stacking" 4 x dell
    powerconnect 6248's, then bounding 2 nics on my servers and having one
    nic go to one switch and the other nic to another switch. I'm assuming
    if the 2 switches my bonded nic are plugged into go down, then it's
    game over, even though I've got 2 other switches in the stack still
    up. Is there a better way go about doing this?

    Thanks for any tips,

    Tony F
