So I need at least 4 switches. Now to my problem. I want to avoid another two spine switches. For my setup (two racks) this seems be a little overpowered and the spines would only use 4-6 ports each. The question mark in the picture shows where the magic must happen.
Looking at other posts I see the following option.
Is this ok or am I missing something?
Thanks in advance.
