Cat6500: How does failover take place with NIC teaming
Lets say a server farm is connected to a switch on dual Cat6500 chasis with NIC teaming i.e. one NIC is connected to Cat6500 (1) and the other NIC is connected to CAT6500 (2). Now the active NIC on 'one' of the servers goes down, how will the failover to the other switch happen. Will the complete switch be failed over. Or would this force a shift of all the servers to the second switch. What and how will it occur ?
Re: Cat6500: How does failover take place with NIC teaming
The other question which needs to be asked is what happens if the primary or active switch fails?, how will NIC teaming respond?. In both cases the NICteaming should kick in, as well as spanning-tree or HSRP on the network side. In this case you should think of active/standby. I say this just for the sake of completeness.
On this point NICteaming is quite a subject. HW vendors have their own implementations on what should occur given a particular event or failure.
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
