Connecting two SW6509 Dual SUP2 dual MSFC2

I have two 6509 to interconnect. One is running SRM and the other Highavailability. Is there any problem to trunk them? Can I use HSRP for the MSFC of the SRM switch? (They are running CatOS and the SRM is not in production - will be the one to interconnect).

Re: Connecting two SW6509 Dual SUP2 dual MSFC2

yes, you can configure a trunk between the 2 switches.

SRM is an internal redundancy feature, so connections between the switch running SRM, and other switches are not affected, because SRM only affects the 2 MSFCs in the same chassis.

Yes you can configure HSRP on the MSFC running SRM. The MSFC would exchange HSRP messages with the 2 MSFCs on the switch running in dual mode redundancy.

For more details on SRM, and dual mode redundancy and how it all works, go to
