Clustering a Cisco 4503

Unanswered Question
Dec 12th, 2008

First of all is it possible to create a Cluster with 2 Cisco 4503 Chassis.

[nic teaming]

..|............|...

[4503]-[4503]

..\.........../

..[Router]

I heard about Cluster License/Cluster IOS, and a special Cisco Cable to connect the Chassis. But I didnt find any usefull information on the website.

Costs? Pointers to website/Information?

I'm also not quite sure if its possible to go back to one router in my image.

I have this problem too.

Hello Oliver,

I've given a quick look at configuration guide there no clustering chapter

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst4500/12.2/46sg/configuration/guide/swflink.html

So I think you cannot

There is now VSS for C6500 but it is not available for C4500

there are some cluster options and stack options but they are for smaller platforms: C3750 support stacking with special purpose stackwise cables.

But no stacking for C4500 that has some features to manage supervisor redundancy but not stacking or clustering

Hope to help

Giuseppe
