Routing Question

Has anyone set up static routes in their fabric? If so, was the link cost changed as well?

Re: Routing Question

setting up static routes will not change the link cost of an ISL. you could do this to spread out traffic for devices which always consume a lot of bandwidth, but it can get very complicated to figure out the best routes if you have a large number of devices and/or more than a couple switches in the fabric. urouteshow will display the current routing table- the flags S and D will denote static or dynamically configured routes.
