I have two ACE appliances installed with HA configuration. I have 5 vlans (Vlan1, Vlan2, Vlan3, Vlan4 and Vlan5) come from 1 trunk interface. I have 1 ADMIN context and 1 PRODUCTION context. I have configured FT Interface, FT Group and FT Peer in ADMIN context only. I have allocate Vlan1 in ADMIN Context only and assign VLAN2, VLAN3, VLAN4 and VLAN5 for PRODUCTION context. The L3 Interface of VLAN2, VLAN3, VLAN4 and VLAN5 are all configured in PRODUCTION context.
My question is how can I track the interface for VLAN2, VLAN3, VLAN4 and VLAN5? Should I configure FT Track Interface in ADMIN context or configure FT Track Interface in PRODUCTION context so that any VLAN interface down will trigger the failover.
Appreciate who can help me on this question. Thanks
The FT group can't be configured in a non-Admin context.
switch/User2(config)# ft gr?
% invalid command
All FT groups MUST be configued in Admin and allocated in Admin to a context.
ft group 112
peer priority 90
The only FT commands inside a context are :
switch/User2(config)# ft ?
auto-sync Enable auto sync
track Configure Fault Tolerance tracking for switchover
And, yes, if tracking configured in a context will reduce priority to its associated group configured in Admin.
