ACE module FT

Hi,

I need to know if for 2 ACE to work on FT the subnet needs to be same or can it work on different subnet as well?

Is it possible to connect 2 6509 with ACE each, connected through routes, not with vlans (layer 3, not layer 2)??

Also, can both ACE be made funcational to work in active active??

NO.

You need to extend Each vlan going into one ACE module to its peer.

Both ACE module can be Active/Active only in multi context mode. For e.g if you have four contexts C1,C2,C3,C4 the you can make C1 & C2 active on Ace1 & C3&C4 active on Ace2.

Re: ACE module FT

Can the interface on ACE module itself be used for extending the vlan, i mean what is the actual purpose of that?

Re: ACE module FT

Ace Module has no interface. You control traffic via vlans delegated from 65K.

In case of Failover the peer ACE module should have all the vlans available to route/bridge traffic.

Re: ACE module FT

Is there any way to schedule the automatic replication of configuration from active ACE to standby, or does that need to be done manually?

Re: ACE module FT

ACE automatically replicates any changes made to the configuration of the Active member to the standby member.

Re: ACE module FT

the config sync is done when you reboot or when you make a configuration change on the active.

This is automatic.

No need to schedule anything.

Gilles.
