VSS is working fine on both sides. We can ping each 4500-VSS and telnet each other without any problem. Interfaces Te1/1/1 and Te2/1/1 are part of a Portchannel on each VSS. 4500X-A and 4500-D are VSS active switches.
Now, if interface Te2/1/1 of 4500X-D goes down, we cannot ping the VSS (C-D) from VSS (A-B). Why does this happen, if we have a PortChannel and interface Te1/1/1 is still UP, and can even see VSS(A-B) through CDP? Can't this be seen as if we had two switches connected through a Portchannel, and one interface of the Portchannel goes down? (devices in the middle are provider equipment)
In order for the fail over to work correctly you need to have a cross connect between 4500-C and the other device above it and 4500-D and the other device above it (fully mesh). The same thing for 4500-A and B.
That is correct, but instead of using one Portchannel for all 4 links you may have to use two different Portchannels as the switches above and below VSS devices are not stacked and therefore can't share a Portchannel. So, it would be one Portchannel from one of the switches to both 4500-C and D and the same from the other switch to both 4500-C and D.
No, there shouldn't be any loop since the switches above and below VSS are not connected together. Think of the individual switches as access layer switches that need to connect to distro/core (VSS). So, each access switch has a Porchannel with 2 links in it and each link connect to a different 4500. Since the links are part of a Portchannel there is no loop.
Yes, that's right. I'm sorry if I hadn't been clear before. So, now that it is clear that those devices are not L2 switches, do you still recommend to have a cross-connect from the VSS to these devices (4 interfaces), so the VSS fail over can work properly?
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
