6500 Sup VS-S720-10G traffic forwarding in Active & Hot state
I have catalyst 6500s with two VS-S720-10Gs, one is in Active and one is in Hot state. Both Sup cards have two 10G uplink ports. How does the traffic forwarding works in this case on the uplink ports? Do these uplink ports actively forward traffic or it is only the uplinks ports on Active that forward traffic? I see CDP neighbors on both Active and Hot SUPs uplinks ports - it indicates that packets are flowing on both cards.
I want all uplink ports on both SUPs to actively forward traffic. Does it work? What is the config for this?
