I am designing an environment that would need two ACE contexts (DMZ and HotDMZ). My plan is to host databases on HotDMZ while hosting the web apps on the other context. I have defined 3 VLANs (11(outside),192(Apps farm) and 195 (Inter-Context vlan)) on the DMZ context. I have also defined vlan 195 on the HotDMZ context and intend to use that as the only link between HOT and HotDMZ contexts. My problem is how do I get the inter-context vlans to talk to each other? Do I need to assign a physical interface to the inter-Context vlan or I can configure them to talk using the back plane of the ACE appliance?
In short, how do I get Inter-Context vlans to talk to each other?
Thanks so much for your assistance.
