I am implementing a failover pair of ACE appliances, and am looking for some validation of my design thoughts. I would like to utilize a physical interface and a back to back cable on each ACE for the FT VLAN, is this recommended? I am planning a two port etherchannel dot1q trunk to carry my client and server side VLAN traffic from the LAN switch to the ACE, is this the recommended practice? I am planning to assign a management IP address to the Admin Context on my management VLAN. In my first user context, I am planning a one-arm deployment. In the design guides it makes mention of assigning a management VLAN IP address to each user context, does this make sense? It's my understanding that all interfaces on the ACE are inband so if I create a second management VLAN interface don't I have to worry about my routing configuration to prevent asymetric routing for management traffic. Is it good practice to allow management on the One-arm VLAN ip address?
Thank you for your prompt response. I have specific requirements that that necessitate that I use one armed mode. What I am having a hard time understanding is the value of the Management interface. My default route will have to be out toward my One-Arm VLAN, My routing toward the Management VLAN will then be asymetric. Will this be a problem? If it is a problem is there any reason why I can't manage this context via the one-arm VLAN IP address?
