I am trying to setup a redundant , High available OSPF network. Pls see attached.
The switches are also running OSPF instances with Routers, on both Primary and Seconday path. Do i need to setup OSPF peering between switches also (over the trunk) so each switch will have both different costs routes, in case 10 is not available it will install 100 in the routing table.
Or any other idea/suggestion will be helpful in desing a full redundant network.
looks like the end host multi-homed to both switches and your are using HSRP for gateway service
if you want to use OSPF with optimal path selection you need to add a link from each router to the other switch and make a fully meshed topology where each router to be connected to both switch using L3 links
then change the ospf cost to make the path to the primary router from both switch prefered with lower ospf cost
since you are using HSRP no need to form ospf over the inter switch link/trunk hsrp will take care of which switch to be the gateway
Marwan - While i am short of ports on the routers, it looks difficult to create a L3 with the other switch.It was a good idea, though.
In case of interswitch OSPF, yes HSRP will take care of only the server facing vlans, but how if the Switch uplink (conencting to router) goes down or the uplink router it-self goes down. In this case Primary switch will be getting the routes over the inter-switch OSPF (with a higher cost) and flows the traffic through seconday link.
