Can anyone help me with Cisco SLB. Here is what I need to do (reference the attached document).

The quote distrubution VLAN has 4 machines that I need to load balance. The machines are dual homed and HSRP runs between the two switches. I need to configure Cisco SLB. The document on Cisco SLB is not conculsive on how to do this. What happens if I configure Cisco SLB on prod-sw1 and it fails how will prod-sw2 assume control of the load balancing function?

The switches here are 6509E with Sup720 engines.

Any help well rated.

Regarding the failover of the Lb , the Lb is linked to the hsrp

sample :

ip slb vserver VS_XXX

virtual 10.0.x.x tcp https

serverfarm SF_XXX

inservice standby YYYY

where YYY is the hsrp name of the subnet where your vip lies.
