Configuring 6513 Redundancy

i have two 6513 switches. each has 2 supervisor engines ( with msfc), a fwsm, idsm, nam, and 2 gigabit ethernet modules. One of them has been fully configured with redundancy btw the sup engines (using the high availability option) and the msfcs (using hsrp). How do i configure the second one such that the 2 switches will both be on the network and provide full redundancy btw them


Re: Configuring 6513 Redundancy

Hi K.Adepetu,

Yo have redundancy between the 2 sups in single chassis there are many ways but 2 have redundancy between 2 completely different chassis has only one way which is HSRP.

So better idea will be to have SRM (Single Router Node) redundancy between the 2 sups in same chassis in this case one 1 sup will be active and if something happen to the active sup the 2nd sup will take over.

And configure HSRp between the sups in 2 different chassis so that if both the sup in same chassi go down the sup in second chassis will come up.

I will give you to link to have a look at it closer

This link wil lguide you how to configure 2 different chassi with 2 sup each for full redundancy.
