I have a 6509 switch that one port hold a host type server that is used for banking transactions.
This server has sort of a stateful type failover.
During primary server failure the failover server aquires the primary server's address.
Primary server = 10.10.10.1
Failover server = 10.10.10.100
The failover process causes the ip address to change from the normal host address to a temporary one (same subnet)while the failover process takes place.
The failover server also uses a temp address until it aquires the primary server address.
This process has been failing and the tech support beilevs that portfast was causing a problem by arp caching the ip address and not letting the temp address take over.
Is this possible, if not, can I adjust arp cache on a single interface?
