I am currently working on a Lab setup which would eventually become a CoE lab after some point of time.
I have attached a ppt which shows the current BOM in distribution/service layer. Based on the hardware i have worked out a model in which setup is being planned to be implemented/installed.
I have got 2 6509 with VSS compatible sup hence i m going for VSS between the switch pair.
In addition to that i have got 4 FWSMs there comes my doubt whether to have 4 of them in the chassis since it will become 4 FWSM blades in one logical chassis. I have gone through the IOS/software version compatibility to have these services modules with VSS so IOS/software version is not a worry here. Just to incorporate the best practices being followed and challenges if we go with 4 FWSM blades in vss mode.
Also with this i have 2 ACE modules since i am bit of alien to ACE modules i m finding bit difficult to find a breakthrough on whether to go with Active/Standby or Active/Active FO.
Since it's a lab setup it has around 12 zones (security zones) with server, storage, authentication occupying each zones and others fall under management (server/network etc.,)
Pls do revert back if you require more info about the setup.
Any help on this will be appreciated.
