Load-share redundant NICs across multiple 6500 chassis
I have several servers with multiple gigabit network cards. I would like to terminate each of these into a physically separate 6500 chassis (for the greatest redundancy) but I would also like both interfaces to be active for sending and receiving data. I know if I terminated both of these interfaces into separate blades within the SAME 6500 chassis, I can configure a gigabit etherchannel and satisfy my requirements. However, I need to also provide chassis-redundancy. Is there a way I can load-share (keeping both interfaces active) two interfaces across multiple chassis?
Re: Load-share redundant NICs across multiple 6500 chassis
Load-balancing is not possible across the different chassis. When you set-up this kind of teaming your one NIC is active in the bundle which sends your traffic and both the NIC's are not active for data transmission so you will not get the load-balancing across different chassis.
