Any suggestion on how to replaced 3560 by an ASR1001 with no downtime?

We will be replacing our 3560 with ASR1001. 3560 is connected to a 2960 switch which facing the Uplink. 3560 is running eBGP peer with only 2 neighbor. My plan is to copy the major configuration of 3560 and paste to the ASR1001 and connect on that same 2960 switch. Would this be fine? Any suggestion will be highly appreciated.

Configuration is attached:

Thanks.

Hi Caren , 

             By this way  , you cant move your LAN traffic towards to ASR1001 . Only you can move your WAN Link which of no use for you . 

          I can suggest you one way over here , configure your LAN interface on your ASR1001 .Keep it shutdown until you establish your 1st link . Once you establish your WAN Link .

Shut your LAN interface on 3560 switch 1st , then un shutdown your router LAN interface (else you have IP address duplication , your LAN segment will loose network connectivity . )

During this duration , your LAN segment may experience some packet drop reaching out of your campus , 

Once you done your movement with first link , then swap your Second WAN link towards ASR1001

By this way some Sensitive application will have time out , need re connection  .

When you use HSRP you will have 4 packet drop during fallback which is invisible to end user

Hi , Connect your ASR1001 on

Hi , 

Connect your ASR1001 on your Network (towards 2960) 

1) configure HSRP for your LAN Segment ( Between 3560 & ASR1001) , at this moment your 3560 should be Active for HSRP Group . All traffic should come to 3560 for exiting your campus

2) Move one BGP Negibhors towards ASR1001 , ensure stability of link .  

3) Then make ASR 1001 as active for HSRP Group , so traffic will go via ASR 1001

4) Move the Second BGP neigbhor from Switch to ASR 1001

5) Finally you can remove 3560 from your network .

Is my update source syntax command from 3560 to ASR correct?

Thanks...

 

Hi  I think presently on your

Hi 

 I think presently on your switch 3560 , you have created SVI for your WAN Link .So you used update source as your VLAN number .

On your ASR router , you can directly terminate on L3 Interface . Like interface Gi0/0/0 for WAN Link 1 and Gi/0/0/2 for WAN Link 2

on this case 

 

neighbor 11.11.11.11 update-source g0/0/0

 

 neighbor 22.22.22.22 update-source g0/0/1

Would there be a conflict if

Would there be a conflict if I will just configure the BGP on the ASR and connect to 2960 without doing any HSRP? I mean, would it be possible for them to work independently?

 

Thanks Sandy for reponding...:)

I forgot to mention that this

I forgot to mention that this 3560 switch only serve as gateway to the internet and do some QoS shaping to other branches. Basically, only 2 ports of 3560 is active and connected to the switch. All connections are in 2960 including a switch for few LAN users and another router which do QoS to another branch as well.

From this setup, can I expect no issues with BGP which will run on both ASR and 3560?

 

Thanks again Sandy :)

 

 

Share me your switch config .
