ACE FT group and TRACK

Unanswered Question
Jun 11th, 2007

I'm trying to configure redundancy on ACE module, and I don't see the relation between the FT groups and the FT TRACK HSRP on the configurations examples. I mean, how does the FT group knows that it is affected just because an FT TRACK has become true ?

I have this problem too.

The ft group will be configured in the admin context and e.g. looks like this.

ACE 01:

ft group 1

peer 1

priority 140

peer priority 100

associate-context FOO


Within the context FOO you configure the HSRP TRACK.

ft track hrsp HSRP-Track-FOO


peer track-hsrp

priority 50

peer priority 45

In an event of failure for the tracked group on the active member the priority will be decreased by the amount specified in the track group. So the active priority will be below the standby priority and therefore trigger a switchover.

That is at least what the documentation says. The other way around it will probably increase the priority by the amount of the peer prio.

Have a look at the link it probably explains it better. :)

Hope it helps...
