DN with mixed CN distanceses some less than 25M most more than 25m

Is it acceptable to simply enable the “Short range (<25m) optimized” on the CN when you have a CN that is less than 25M even if you have several other CNs at 25-150M connected to the same DN? I would not enable it on the DN since I assume that all my longer range connections would not connect well if the DN is short range.

As you have pointed out quite rightly, we wouldn’t want to set the short range on the DN which has other long-range clients. We could enable this short range on the CN that is close to the DN. If you have a case of short- and long-range Clients that you have to deal with on the same DN, it would be good practice to avoid installing this short-range CN at the intersection between the 2 sectors of the V5K (DN). As mentioned in the deployment guide knowledge-based article, if this short range CN is placed within +/-10 degrees about the intersection point, the chances of experiencing issues related to Near-Far-Ratio would increase.
