I have CISCO 4507R switch. It is working perfectly.
I have two Linux Server configured as web servers with IP address 192.168.1.100 and 192.168.1.200. The intention is to provide Load Balancing / High Availability in the servers. We have not configured clustering or Network Load Balancing (NLB) between servers as it does not support active / active clustering.
Servers are connected in the following ports
Giga 0/1 - SERVER 1
Giga 0/2 - SERVER 2
So I am trying to configure the load balancing in the switch, so that both the servers should the receiving the traffic from clients.
Is there any way I can configure Virtual IP address in the switch for this web servers, so that this Virtual IP address will be given to clients for communicating with the servers.
Or otherwise any workaround or solution is there to achieve my requirement.
I read that Etherchannel is not possible between One switch and two different servers. Is that true?
