Need more advice please. If you didn't already know I am a 3rd year Networking and Systems Support student so please don't laugh if I am being a complete nooby no sense! lol.
I am having a some difficulty VLAN addressing on the dual the layer 3 switches. On both DLS switches I beleive the VLAN IP addresses should match each other?? Or am I wrong in saying do?? Reason I ask is because I am being displayed with Duplcate addresses of the VLANs. I have DLS1 & DLS2 configured with the following VLANs:
I think you might be getting confused with a function / technology called HSRP.
Basically if you have two layer 3 switches serving clients and want a HA configuration where if one fails the other will take over Layer 3 forwarding operations you need HSRP (which sounds like what your trying to achieve).
So in terms of your configurations each DLS should have a different IP for each Vlan and then under each Vlan interface you configure a HSRP group with the "virtual IP" that clients will use as a default gateway.
I hope this makes some sense if you want to know more about HSRP let me know.
Yeah I will be using HA in terms of Gateway Load Balancing Protocol I haven't gotten that far as I am doing a top down design and unfortunetly PacketTracer does not support HSRP or GLBP. Configuration will need to happen in the lab but until then I am getting familar with the commands. Presentation is in 6 weeks to show a fully operational campus network with 5 branch offices. Plenty of time. I hope!
