I have been given the task of configuring a Cisco ACE20 initially for SLB. I have configured IOS SLB sucesfully but the ACE appears far more complex. Does anyone have any confgiuration guides with diagrams. The Cisco documentation only gives command guides which I am finding difficult to follow. I have set up a test scenario as follows:
Client side vlan 10 - 172.22.152.0 / 21
Server side vlan 17 - 172.22.244.0 /24
Vlan 10 is set up on Sup720 as L2/3
Vlan 17 is set up on Sup720 as L2 only
PC with IIS running with IP address 172.22.244.101
VIP address 172.22.152.6
Rserver address 172.22.244.101
Route on ACE 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 172.22.152.2
I can ping the rserver from ACE OK as I have captured the ICMP traffic with analyser, when I attempt to HTTP to the vserver address I see the traffic hit the ACE but it sends TCP resets.
I can provide the full config of the ACE etc if needed.
With IOS SLB (without NAT) I used loopback addresses on the real servers from the ACE documentation it appears the VIP address has to be completely unique, does this mean there is no need for loopback interfaces. Also does the VIP address have to be in a different subnet than the clients as mine is not but it is in the same subnet as my client side vlan as was stated in the ACE getting started guide.
I am very new to content swithing especially classifying traffic etc, can anyone please help ?
