We have a CSS setup with only one ethernet port(eth1) ,one arm configuration.
This port is ingress aswell as egress for loadbalancing traffic.
It takes in client request from various sources and load balances to services on the same network.
For E.g 192.168.10.5 is VIP and it load balances to servers located at 192.168.10.10 and 192.168.10.20.
Due to high network traffic we are looking to increase the ehternet links capacity.
I understand we cannot do etherchanneling with css.
So is it possible to connect another ethernet link (eth2) on the same vlan and recieve
client traffic on it for a new VIP for e.g 192.168.1.6 as well as keeping 192.168.1.5 on eth1
Or STP will block this port eth2 thinking its a loop?
