I've to configure VRRP on my Nokia IP 350 boxes. The setup should be as given below:
FW_1 - Cisco 6500 SW_1-Internet Router_1
FW_2 - Cisco 6500 SW_2-Internet Router_2
I will configuring VRRP for this on FW;s & HSRP on Cisco switches.
I've following doubts:
1. Is VRRP stateful as on routers its not?
2. Since HSRP group will be active on only 1 6500 switch and for e.g. FW_1 goes down and HSRP is active on 6500_SW_1 even though FW_2 takev over the virtual IP how will it route the traffi as its not connected to 6500 SW_1 as its conencted to 6500 SW_2. If I connect both Firewall to their respective switches and to other too then following will be scenario:
FW_1 - Cisco 6500 SW_1-Internet Router_1 (1 cable from FW_1 to SW_1)
FW_1 - Cisco 6500 SW_2-Internet Router_1 (2 cable from FW_2 to SW_2
Similary for FW_2.
But then how mac entries will be ensured for FW_2 when FW_! takes over.
Do we require some special setting on Switch? I remember something but not able to recollect.
Request to pl guide.
