We configured two 6500 with VSS and it's working well, but my customer has HP OpenView and would like to see two 6500 nodes on his map. In reality he would like that each 6500 has one IP address (one ip address for each 6500 like a loopback IP address for example).
Is it possible ?
Just spit balling here, but couldn't you assign an IP address to one port on each chassis.
Des Chassis One
ip add 18.104.22.168 255.255.255.0
int Gi 2/1/1
Des Chassis Two
ip add 22.214.171.124 255.255.255.0
Enable some form of routing, ping each respective interface and off to the races you go. In production, I've seen monitoring of SNMP on links with e-mail alert should the VSS trunk go down.
Hope this helps, rate if it does!
