Not that weird, and you dont need to spend double maybe keep the
switch before this one, but in our humble shop fiber goes in one pair
of switches and network on the other. Network has no redundancy, fiber
has. I have even changed 2 sun switches for 2 ibm switches, only
waiting for the mpio driver to notify the paths gone/arrived...

Best regards,

Frustrating that I want to use my new tape library but when you have a
$40k switch you have to reboot it to change a port from ethernet to fiber.
A rather major network disruption that has to be scheduled well in

Apparently when you shell out this amount on a switch you are supposed to
double that or so and have redundant switches.
