ip alias in the redundant setup

We're trying to setup a redundancy for the 2 ACE modules in the separate 65xx and were wondering if we would need to setup an ip alias address. what is it for anyway?

Thanks..

Re: ip alias in the redundant setup

Hi,

an alias IP is like an HSRP or VRRP address between two routers. It provides a shared IP address between the two redundant ACEs.

It should be used in routed mode as default gateway for the servers or as next-hop for the upstream router to reach the subnets behind the ACE.

more info can be found here:

HTH,

Dario
