Cisco 6509-E VSS

Hello,

I am preparing a project plan to move from Cisco 6509-e (with Dual SUP720) HSRP to VSS (single SUP 2T).

This is my flow work to cutover:

- Copy running to disk0 (external flash)

- Turn off both Cores

- Remove SUP 720s

- Install new SUP 2T

- Turn on both Cores

- Verify default running config

- Copy running config from disk0 to SUP 2T flash

- Re-configure Po1 with addecuate memmbers (10G Ports in new SUP)

** At this moment everything should work w/o any issue HSRP - Rigth?

** This will be my restore point if VSS configuration fail.

- Then, configure VSS

- at this point the questions is: what happen with the actual running configuration, it will remain the same or it will go to default.

- Do I have to prepare manually the running config?

In another aspect, look at the attached topology:

- Do I need to create MEC in access switches and Core switches?

- What about the upstream from Windows Servers and ESXi hosts?

I will greatly appreciate your input, suggestions, etc.to accomplish this project.

Thanks

Hi,

at this point the questions is: what happen with the actual running configuration, it will remain the same or it will go to default.

- Do I have to prepare manually the running config?

Yes, you will lose the config once you convert to VSS and you need to prepare it manually.

Do I need to create MEC in access switches and Core switches?

Yes, each access switche needs to connect to both cores using an Etherchannel.

What about the upstream from Windows Servers and ESXi hosts?

ESXi hosts should also be connected to both 6500 cores.

You also need a connection from the other core switch to your upstream router (3945E).
