Hi Steve

Maybe I misunderstood your question, but I don't see any possible problem here. Any context (talking about L3 mode, otherwise not clear what "routed" means) can perform basic L3 routing. If you add some VIPs - it will loadbalance traffic coming to them, however you will still be able to access servers via they real IPs directly.

Please let me know if I misunderstood you or you have some particular scenario

.

Hi Boris

I have been on the ACE course and before we install the 4700 box i have been

asked to set up a test setup.

This would involve have a context which would have one ip address range and

a few pcs (pretending to be servers ) and one which would be just routed.

A colleague of mine seemed to think that something had been said on the course

to the effect that if the ACE was deployed  in line the you couldnt have some

of your servers in load-sharing and some just routed on the same subnet and

in the same context.
