We're in the process of multihoming our HP Enclosures. I've attached diagrams of the current and proposed network/server setup.
Initially we configured HSRP so that the server VLAN 100 gateway could float between the 4507 and the 6509. Redundant links were added between the 6509 and the Enclosure. Spanning Tree was configured so that the 4507 was the root for VLAN 100 and the links between the 6509 and the Enclosure were blocked. We've simulated âfailureâ of the 4507 and various links and everything worked as expected - so far so good.
Our server admins are planning to move some Microsoft NLB servers onto the Enclosure (we are looking at a hardware solution for loadbalancing but this won't be implemented anytime soon)
The 4507 has the âmac-address-table staticâ entries for the NLB frontends as per the Cisco document ID 107995. Is it possible to configure âmac-address-table staticâ entries on the 6509 so that if the 4507 fails, the MS NLB clusters will still continue to function once HSRP and Spanning Tree have converged.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3.
16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted
towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are
looking for early feedback from customers befor...
