I have a setup where I have 2 seperate data circuits, a primary and a redundant connection. In the event of the primary connection going offline, I need to secondary connection to pick up without a configuration change.
I have an application server that is setup with microsoft clustering service. I point the primary and secondary connections to the VIP of the cluster. I can recive data on the primary connection, but when I switch to the secondary connection I get a routing issue. Basicly the traffic is recived over the secondary connection, but it replies to the primary connection.
How would I configure the route so that it times out on the first connection and tries the second. Here is what I have so far.
Circuit 1 - 192.168.5.10
Circuit 2 - 192.168.10.10
FireWall 1 - 10.10.4.10
FireWall 2 - 10.10.4.20
Cluster IP - 10.10.10.50
Circuit 1 ---> FireWall 1 ---> Cluster IP <--- FireWall 2 <--- Circuit 2
ip route 192.168.5.0 255.255.255.0 10.10.4.10 10
ip route 192.168.10.0 255.255.255.0 10.10.4.10 10
ip route 192.168.5.0 255.255.255.0 10.10.4.20 20
ip route 192.168.10.0 255.255.255.0 10.10.4.20 20
Is there a better way to set the routing so that it will know which firewall to respond to?
*note I just set the configuration and am waiting for my next deplyment to test.
