Good Day CSS Experts,
I am configuring CSS 11503 in VIP and Virtual interface redundancy.
Client----L3S/w--- CSS1----CSS2 -----L2 (stack)--server1
I have understood that rather using upper and lower device ip for monitoring, we should use CSS interface IP in the critical service for best & fast failover result.. So I plan to use critical service to monitor CSS Int. & define the CSS interface IP addresses in the keepalive type script ap-kal-pinglist "client_side_CSS_int_ip Srvr_side_CSS_int_ip"
1. What IP address should I assign to the service used for critical server? I can define the above keepalive but, the service upstream_downstream_CSS, does not accepts the CSS IP address and so I can?t activate the service without IP address?
I understand that we can not use critical reporter vrid-peering & physical interface at the same time.
2. Should I use a critical reporter using vrid-peering or physical interface with the critical service I mentioned above?
Goal is to have best failover if any bit goes down with the related environment L3----CSS---L2---server1
Also, any best working solution opinion welcome!
