I haven't seen many questions on VSS, so I don't know if there are many issues with it. But I am getting push back from my peers that our configuration will not work in VSS.
Our configuration is as follows:
Servers are running NIC teaming software in failover-active/passive mode. NIC 1 - active - is connected via 1 gb to a 4948a, which is connected via 10gb to 6509a NIC 2 - active - is connected via 1 gb to a 4948b, which is connected via 10gb to 6509b. My single point of failure is the server.
My peers state that I need to connect 4948a and 4948b to 6509a and 6509b to take full effect of MEC on VSS.
Can I keep current connectivity, but add a 10 gb link between 4948a and 4948b, and use MEC to run betwween them, as long as I am on the same module port?
Or do I leave the connectivity as it is?
Thanks for helping the helpless.
