Routing and loadbalancing part 3

Hi All

Still cant get the basic loadbalancing functon to work for some reason .- even when i do the 'sho service-policy CLIENT-VIPS' detail its not incrementing.

Dont know why but its just not working -

Also should i be able to connect to the other vlan 122 from a vlan 121 on the client side - i cant see anything in the manual about enabling routing

So any ideas anyone as i cant seem to get this to work - heres the non admin context config -

access-list EVERYONE line 8 extended permit tcp any any
access-list INBOUND line 1 extended permit tcp host any

rserver host TEST-1
  ip address xx.xx.122.200
rserver host TEST-2
  ip address xx.xx.122.201
rserver host TEST-3
  ip address xx.xx.122.3

serverfarm host TESTFARM
  rserver TEST-1
  rserver TEST-2

class-map type management match-any REMOTE-ACCESS
  2 match protocol icmp any
  3 match protocol telnet any
  4 match protocol ssh any
  5 match protocol https any
  6 match protocol http any
  7 match protocol xml-https any
class-map match-all VIP-150
  2 match virtual-address xx.xx.121.150 any

policy-map type management first-match MGMT_TEST

policy-map type loadbalance first-match lb-logic
  class class-default
    serverfarm TESTFARM

policy-map multi-match CLIENT-VIPS
  class VIP-150
    loadbalance vip inservice
    loadbalance policy lb-logic

interface vlan 121
  description Clients
  ip address xx.xx.121.10
  access-group input EVERYONE
  service-policy input CLIENT-VIPS
  service-policy input MGMT_TEST
  no shutdown
interface vlan 122
  description Servers Vlan
  ip address xx.xx.122.10
  no shutdown

ip route xx.xx.121.1

xx.xx.121.1 is the switch off which i have the client xx.xx.121.4

This is my admin context -

interface gigabitEthernet 1/1
  switchport trunk allowed vlan 121
  no shutdown
interface gigabitEthernet 1/2
  switchport access vlan 1000
  no shutdown
interface gigabitEthernet 1/3
  switchport trunk allowed vlan 122
  no shutdown
interface gigabitEthernet 1/4

access-list ALL line 8 extended permit ip any any

class-map type management match-any remote_access
  2 match protocol xml-https any
  3 match protocol icmp any
  4 match protocol telnet any
  5 match protocol ssh any
  6 match protocol http any
O  7 match protocol https any
  8 match protocol snmp any

policy-map type management first-match remote_mgmt_allow_policy
  class remote_access

interface vlan 121
  ip address xx.xx.121.171
  access-group input ALLly
  service-policy input remote_mgmt_allow_policy
  no shutdown
interface vlan 122
  ip address xx.xx.122.171
  access-group input ALL
  service-policy input remote_mgmt_allow_policy
  no shutdown
interface vlan 1000
  ip address xx.xx.253.20
  access-group input ALL
  service-policy input remote_mgmt_allow_policy
  no shutdown

context Testing-11
  description Testing Context
  allocate-interface vlan 121-122
  allocate-interface vlan 1000

All the interfaces are up - except vlan 1000 which is not used.

Couple of (probably obvious) questions -

1. Do i need to create the 122 Server vlan in the admin context - i have assumed you must so you can allocate them to the other contexts.

2. On the physical interfaces - if you use a vlan in one you cant use it in another- do they automatically trunk ?

Currently i can ping from my client pc to the context vlan on the same vlan = xx.xx.121.10

I am using the manual from the course but it was done on a virtual appliance so i didnt really see much of the admin contexts

Maurice thanks for your help so far and if you can see anything wrong let me know.

Routing and loadbalancing part 3

Sorry Marcel ;-)

Using some free webservers have managed to get the load balancing working to two of the servers.

However the third one is not loadbalanced and i cant seem to route to it

Any idea how i can do this -

ie -

Have 2 servers in a server farm loadbalancing

and another you just route to

Thanks for your help
