We have one catalyst 4948.we have create 3 vlans on this catalyst. each vlan has 3 servers. we want to load balance the traffic among the servers on the same vlan. We want to connect one css11503 in one arm mode. can we create a trunk link between the catalyst and the CSS to load balance the traffic to all the servers on the same vlan, so we can have load balancing for all vlans at the same time without change the topology of the network?

I have this problem too.

yes, you can use trunking on the CSS and loadbalance to the different servers even if they belong to different vlans.

I want to load balance the traffic to the servers of the same vlan, and do it for all the vlans simultaneously.

you can place your servers anywhere you want.

All you need to keep in mind is that the CSS needs to see both side of the connection.

So, traffic from client-->server must go through ace and the response server--->cliebt must also go through ACE.

You may have to configure client nat to do so.

You can use a different nat address for each server as well.
