It should work

by jtakiwi In reply to new switch configuration

By just plugging it into an existing switch. If it is a managed switch, it will be beneficial to assign a ip address to it. If they are Cisco switches, there is a reasonable possiblity (depending on what kind you have) that you could manage them all as one big virtual switch. To help performance, use fast uplinks between the switches if available, group servers that talk to one another on the same switch as much as possible.
