I have a 6k and csm module,

Below is the scenario and my goal,


client ->6k(client gateway)->vip (on csm module)->serverfarm (real servers at another subnet -> gateway2->real servers. Is it possible working like this? I tried but failed.


If I use bridge mode, and directly connect the real server to 6k (server vlan side), everything is working. But I do need running some servers which locate at another subnet and can not be trunked to 6k. need help.


I searched cisco but all the case looks like directly connect real servers to CSM . I tried set static route under server vlan, not work too.


Thanks

Hi


Yes this should be possible, we do it here where i work. You should be able to use the static route on the vlan to make it work but you say you have already tried that.


Could you send a copy of the relevant config ?

6k and 4k running EIGRP.


the regular layer3 traffic flow from client to real server subnet is

client10.10.10.x->10.10.10.1->172.16.27.1->real server172.16.27.x

currnetly I use nat client and trunk vlan 27 from 6k to 4k, it works. But it is not what I want, I do not want trunk vlan 27 between 6k and 4k, I want use routed to get there. Please advise! T


Thank you all.
