I have a question about the ACE 4710. I have running two boxes in Active / Hotstandby mode.
At the boxes there is running an admin context and addtionally a Loadbalancing context. There are alredy 3 VLAN's where the boxes does already lobalance serives in. Classic connection with a 4 port - Gigabit-Ethernet-Channel.
Now there is a serverfarm for some reasons placed in another VLAN what does the ACE not know. I think it should not be a problem to allow a new VLAN at the Portchannel...
but when I setup the new VLAN Interface with IP-Address / Alias IP addres and Peer ip address.. there I am not shure if can do this on the fly and the box continues work or will this have an influence on the HA ?
The other thing what I am not shure about is: what will happen at the loadbalancing context adding the new vlan interface...
Within the admin context:
allocate-interface vlan 200
allocate-interface vlan 300
allocate-interface vlan 400
allocate-interface vlan 5 This will be the new VLAN-Interface....
Will the context Loadbalancing and all the defintions about serverfarms / rservers and so on remain? and the box does at this moment continue Loadbalancing the traffic... or is there any danger to loose the Loadbalancing context ?
Any tipps about the correct steps that keeps the box alive with adding a new VLAN interface will be appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your help.
