ACE fault tolerant groups and contexts

Hi Guys

Im a newbi to ACE , we currently have 2 ACE blades in seperate 6500's. Each ace has one dedicated routed mode context and a shared one armed mode across the 2 modules. The shared context uses a Fault tolerant group.

I want to create a new context shared for exchange 2010 in one arm mode, my question is can i still use the FT group specified in the existing shared context ? or do i have to have a dedicated FT group per context ?

Many thanks

Dave White

dedicated group per context pair.

Thanks very much, i presume if im careful i can create the new context while the other context are running, any tips on first steps ?

I'm thinking as follows.

1. Create the new FT Vlan and One Arm vlan on the 6500

2. Create the HSRP groups and ensure these work across the data centre etherchannel

3. Allocate the VLANS to the ACE at both sites

4. Configure the FT group on both sites and Context

5. Then ? do i start the ACE configuration on the one that will be the master. As i want to reverse the role so on this context the ACe in data center B is master, On the other context data center A is the master.

Hi One quick question, can i use the same FT vlan across all context just a different FT group for each context.

Use the same FT vlan, just create new ft groups in the admin context
