ACE's mac-sticky equivalent on CSS

Unanswered Question
Apr 24th, 2008

Been working only on ACE equipment and now I have to solve a mac sticky problem, but on a CSS instead.

mac-sticky is enabled on a vlan interface on an ACE in bridged mode, it make sure that all traffic sourced on that interface is destined back through the same interface.

My question is how would I solve this with CSS if you could paste a sample config It would be greatly appreciated!

I have this problem too.

Not really an equivalent but the following command is often required on the CSS when configured in bridge mode.

CSS11503-2(config)# ip uncond-bridging

This tells the CSS to first bridge and only route if needed.

Hi this didn't help me in my quest,

How can I allow the return traffic to come through the same interface? if I add an ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 194.132.xxx.236 my setup works fine but the other subnets are affected obiviously because there is 2 default route configured

How can I get around this?

I have the following:

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 194.132.xxx.222 1

************************* INTERFACE *************************

interface e1

phy 100Mbits-FD

bridge vlan 30

interface e2

bridge vlan 92

phy 100Mbits-FD

interface e3

phy 100Mbits-FD

bridge vlan 70

interface e4

phy 100Mbits-FD

admin-shutdown

interface e5

phy 100Mbits-FD

bridge vlan 15

interface e6

admin-shutdown

interface e7

admin-shutdown

bridge vlan 11

interface e8

phy 100Mbits-FD

bridge vlan 11

there is no mac-sticky equivalent on the CSS.

The only thing you can control is ecmp.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/app_ntwk_services/data_center_app_services/css11500series/v7.20/configuration/administration/guide/Protocol.html

"By default, the ingress path for a flow is the preferred egress path. This means that the preferred interface over which to reply to a client is the interface on which the CSS originally received the request from the client. "

For this to work, you need to add this 2nd route.
