Hi,

I am trying to use redundant CSMs in a 6513 chassis. Here is what I would like to know:

1) If i simply copy and paste configuration from the existing primary CSM to the secondary, will there be any problems?

2) Do we have to specify which CSM is primary and which one is secondary?

Thanks,

Mohamad

You don't need to copy paste the entire config.


Active CSM config will syncronize the config to standby CSM automatically.


You just need to put the Interface & FT (fault tolerance) related config on standby and Active CSM will copy the config to the Standby.


Interface & FT level configs on Active and Stdby should look like this


******** Active CSM *************


module ContentSwitchingModule 3

ft group 1 vlan 101

priority 110 alt 100

preempt

!

vlan 100 client

ip address 10.10.100.2 255.255.255.0 alt 10.10.100.3 255.255.255.0

gateway 10.10.100.254

alias 10.10.100.1 255.255.255.0

!

vlan 200 server

ip address 10.10.200.2 255.255.255.0 alt 10.10.200.3 255.255.255.0

alias 10.10.200.1 255.255.255.0

remaining config...
