It has been ages since I've worried about it and now I've forgotten the rules. If I have an bunch of unmanaged switches, do I need to worry about the cascading rule
I have 5 switches in a server room and 1 in a closet.
I believe the current environment is - Switch 1 links to Switch 2,3,4,5 and 6 - no other connections between the switches.
This may be antiquated hub thinking that is no longer applicable. It has been a while since I've seen so many ports on an unmanaged backbone.
