when i configure 2 6500 for VSS Operation,both gonna be 1 logical switch , now what should i inform the servers team to do regarding the NIC Teaming on their server , should i say to consider the NIC Teaming as active/active? or what?pls advise me from work experience
Sorry, just interpret my previous answer as "Configure on the server side LACP or Static port-channel (channel-group mode on) because are better suited for bandwith optimization and fast failure recovery."
csarto is right, but it depends on what you consider "nic teaming".
Some places I've worked consider nic teaming as active/standby. In this case, it would be like connecting the servers to the same switch. They'd configure one nic as active, the other as standby. You just have to have port nic-ports in the same vlan.
If they're using LACP or PAGP, then you'll have to configure your ports accordingly.
VSS would still provide the redundancy/resiliency you require, but would allow for LACP / PAGP port configuration to cross the chassis.
The Term (NIC Teaming) in a Server Terminology means combining more than one Server NIC interface into A single Logical Interface. This is mostly used with HP blade Servers or EMC. and its done with Etherchannel Standard like LACP or Static One.
Anyways, if you meant to say its two different not combined interfaces, then you shouldnt say Teaming, and you can still have both work as Active/Active NICs while configuring them on the same or different Vlans.
We have 3 identical switches configured by someone else and would like to claim some of the Gigabit ports(G1/G2/G3/G4) for use on servers. When we try to change the wiring and configuration, we run in to connectivity issues. Attached is a des...
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
