Unable to ping MSFC after ACE force failover

Unanswered Question
Nov 4th, 2008

Simple topology


The above is in redundant design i.e. two 6500 chassis. MSFC has HSRP defined where all the VLANs/SVI are active only on Chassis 1. ACE is in bridged mode and the host is connected to the server lan.

When ACE is active on the primary leg, I am able to ping the SVI on MSFC from the host. However, when I failover the ACE via 'force failover group #' ping to SVI fails. The 'sh ft group brief' shows failover to be successful.

Please advise why would a ping stop working with ACE force failover.


I have this problem too.
