Can a loopback address be set on CCM 5.1? I am trying to setup a server cluster using SLB with two 6500 core switches to allow a third party redundant connection.

Are you tryig to configure loopback address for h.323 gateway and put the loopback ip address in the callmanager's gateway configuration page?

No. I am trying to setup SLB between the two callmanagers and one of the methods of SLB requires a loopback address on the CCM. I think I am going to use the direct method of SLB which does not requre loopback addresses.

You cant set a loopback as such..

But you can multihome the server to 2 x different switches

You will need to enable NFT from the command line on the CallManager.

It will use an active / standby config. I.e. if one link fails and the server detects it, it will attempt to activate the other link.
