I have briged the FWSM VLANs ( named DMZ,DMZ-BRIDGE) via the IDSM. However, on the 'show failover' on FWSM the server VLAN shows as 'No Link/Unknown'. Is it because there is no IP assigned. Is it the right status/configuration. Do I need to assign an IP to the bridged VLAN. Please assist.
This host: Primary - Active
Interface DMZ-BRIDGE (0.0.0.0): No Link (Not-Monitored)
Other host: Secondary - Standby Ready
Interface DMZ-BRIDGE (0.0.0.0): Unknown (Not-Monitored)
You got it right..
Just make sure there is no path around the IDSM (Traffic shouldnt by pass IDSM).
On IDSM (using IDM/CLI) create a vlan pair and assign it to interface gigabitethernet0/7.
Only Vlan 10 & 20 will be defined on FWSM and will be delegated from switch.
IDSM will do L2 bridging and it will bridge vlan 20 & 30.
Same IP network will exist on vlan 20 & 30.
