ACE ft peer X ??

Unanswered Question
Jul 8th, 2008

Hi All,

We have 2 ACE's in two different 6513 chassis.

We are trying to configure redundancy on the, but one think

it not clear to me. Shouls ft peer X be different on second

ACE blade? It's really not clear to me and cisco documentation

makes it even worse :( So to my understanding failover should be

configured like this:

ACE 01

ft interface vlan 2000

ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.248

peer ip address 192.168.1.2 255.255.255.248

no shutdown

!

ft peer 1 <<< ===

heartbeat interval 200

heartbeat count 20

ft-interface vlan 2000

!

ft group 10

peer 1

no preempt

peer priority 200

associate-context CTX1

inservice

ACE 02

ft interface vlan 2000

ip address 192.168.1.2 255.255.255.248

peer ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.248

no shutdown

ft peer 2 <<< ====

heartbeat interval 2000

heartbeat count 20

ft-interface vlan 2000

!

ft group 10

peer 2

no preempt

peer priority 100

associate-context CTX1

inservice

but in all examples and in all forums i can see that ft peer is configured

with the same number on both ACE's. To my understanding it should uniquely identify devices/peer's but i guess my understanding is wrong.

Thanks,

Darius

I have this problem too.

switch/Admin(config)# ft peer ?

<1-1> Please enter FT Peer ID

switch/Admin(config)# ft peer

It has a local meaning only.

So we can reuse the same value on each blade.
