ACE Redundancy FT Vlan down

Hi All,


Simple question.


Assuming to have two ACE load balancer installed in two different Catalyst 6500.

The two Catalyst are directly connected over a L2 connection and  all the flow-state information and the redundancy heartbeat information are transmitted over this connection.

One LB is in active and the second one in stand by. The two load balancer processing traffic for the same virtual devices, of course.

Assuming now that the link is in shutdown state.
In this case both ACE LB will be in the Active state.

Could you please briefly describe what are the impact of having two load balancer active at the same time?


Thank you.
