ACE Redundancy

Hi,

We have two ACE4710 running version A3(2.3) that we would like to configure for redundancy. We have three contexts in place.

I understand that we need to configure a dedicated FT VLAN for this, but I have a couple of questions regarding this VLAN:

1. We are planning to use a separate physical interface for the redunancy vlan. Is there any drawbacks with this?

2. We are planning to use a cross-over cable between the two ACE redundancy interfaces. Is there any drawbacks with this?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Best regards,

Harry

Re: ACE Redundancy

Harry,

I prefer doing crossover cable between the two physical interfaces. If you can spare one port for it, if you can't, like need more ports for other things, then you want to use Vlan.

Keep in mind that the two interfaces has to be on same port, i.e.. dedicate port 4 for FT on both sides.
