VSS & ACE

Hi Experts,

This is my first time and, I am in a situation where I have to configure VSS between two 6509E & Load balancing using ACE.

I shall be grateful if someone can help me with step by step configuration of VSS and how does load balancing works with ACE module in 6509E.

Thanks & Regards

Re: VSS & ACE

Hi Mudasir,

Have  a look at this document for minimum software requirement for IOS and ACE module in VSS environment:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps9336/products_tech_note09186a0080a7c72b.shtml#ace_fwsm

Here is a link for configuring a service module in VSS:

Re: VSS & ACE

there are no problems with the ACE modules running on an VSS.

as mentioned, you just have to choose the right IOS on the 6509 and

the right OS on the ACE.

Otherwise the ACE-Module will boot up, generate an error message

in the 6509 log, powers down and boot again. this happens in an indefinite

loop.

error message could look like this:

============================

no power enable switch 2 module 8 Mar 25 15:08:59.301: %ONLINE-SW2_SPSTBY-6-INITFAIL: Module 8: Failed to enable module sm(cygnus_oir_bay slot8), running yes, state wait_til_online Last transition recorded: (timer)-> occupied (known)-> can_power_on (yes_power)-> powered_on (real_power_on)-> check_power_on (timer)-> check_power_on (power_on_ok)-> wait_til_online (reset_timer_online)-> wait_til_online (reset_timer_online)-> wait_til_online (reset_timer_online)-> wait_til_online (reset_timer_online)-> wait_til_online Mar 25 15:08:59.301: %C6KPWR-SW2_SPSTBY-4-DISABLED: power to module in slot 8 set off (Module  Failed SCP dnld)

============================

Minimum Version on the ACE is A2(1.3), but you should update the ACE

to Version A2(2.3), if it isnt allready updated.

regards
