This network has one EAPS ring link between all the x450a and BD8810.

How can i connect those x430 to work with two uplinks like in the picture below?

Sorry for my bad picture :p

Make another eaps ring with shared ports.  Below is a example with config's.

With Advanced Edge license is it possible?

no.  you need a core license.  you could switch everything over to ERPSv2 with a sub ring.

OK.

We do have some x460 with core license.

In this case, what is the best option? Two eaps or just use ERPSv2 in the entire network?

Thanks for helping.

Hi Gerson, if you are already familiar with EAPS I would recommend you to keep using EAPS. As already said by Stephen, you will need to configure common link / shared-port between the 2 switches that will connect both rings. Based on your topology, only those 2 switches must have the Core license applied.
