Failover & Routing

Hello all,

I'm not familiar with cisco networking at all. So I need all the help you can give me.

We have two subnets and e.g that are connected with two Cisco routers.In each subnet we have 2 Data Center machines.

The clients from both subnets connect to the DC1 by IP for use. The DC2 is replicating with DC1.

If DC1 fails then DC2 will have the ip of DC1.

The clients conf remain unchanged but they'll have to connect to DC2 which has the ip

Is that making sense ?

What must I do ?

I really need all the help you can give me.

Thanks for your time!

P.S Behind the routers there aren't any Cisco switches currently.

Re: Failover & Routing

Ok !

Well thanks to one of my friends (Fanis) we have some solutions:

1) Bridge the networks

2) 2nd Eth interface on the router & changing the ip's one the DC's with private ones and changing the conf at the clients

3) Buy Cisco switches (We have to anyway)Switch sub int and NAT

4) Play with name resolution - Not totally possible

That's all. I hope this can help someone who's in my place as well.
