Is it possible to use management Vlan as FT Vlan for ACE4710?

Unanswered Question

Is it allowed to configure ACE4710 management vlan as a FT vlan between two appliances? If allowed, what's the consequence of not using a dedicated FT Vlan?


Thanks a lot

You should not have any other traffic on the dedicated FT vlan.

This is from the docs.

Note Do not use this dedicated VLAN for any other network traffic, including HSRP and data

Having any other traffic on this vlan could cause a problem with FT heart beats being dropped, and both ACE could become active. Definitely use a dedicated FT Vlan.
