Connecting to the admin context

Hi All

I seem to find myself in a bit of a quandary -  in that i cannot currently connect to the admin

context remotely while i have access to the testing context i set up and i am unsure how

to connect so as to be able to talk to both the admin context and the testing context.

I have two vlans i am using both of which have interfaces on the test context - 

shall we call them xx.xx.151.0/24 and xx.xx.152.0/24.

Now xx.xx.151.0 is where the servers will be and only exists beyond the vip.

xx.xx.152.0 is connected through to the rest of our network.

Now my initial thought was that we could use another 152 vlan int on the 'internal'

side - that is the admin context - but mt tech supportb has kindly pointed out that

i cannot do this  -

I believe you get the same mac address on both sides which may cause issues.

So the layer2 resolution to pass data may not work correctly

So can someone tell me how i get access to the admin context - do i need

another vlan or ip address not on these ranges - just to manage the admin

context ?

Connecting to the admin context

Hi Steve,

You can share the vlan between 2 contexts and use seperate IP address for the admin context to manage it.

However , Cisco dont recommend to use same VLAN to be shared in two context especially for the admin context ,which generally uses the management VLAN .

HTH,
