FAS 2040 IP trouble

Hello Christian,

If you have ethernet swithces that support LACP, we would recommand that.

1.)What you can do is use on FAS1 ethernet 1 and 2 with LACP over one switch (LACP1) and ethernet 3 and 4 with LACP (LCAP2). (same on FAS2)

2.)Then you create a single mode vif with LACP1 and 2 (active/passif)

You will have then 2gbps redundant link going to 2 different switches.

Hope that can help.

If you use Cisco switches...LACP is the channel-group command...

Thx Hadrien for u answer,

So, I can have the two controller with the same IP address?? like a virtual IP address?, because I need to the Linux Servers see only one IP address

The switches are Cisco 2970 and I use LACP for the boundels

Hey,

No you'll have 2 ips, one for each controller.

Check this documentation:

You ll find everything about network configuration.

Hope this help.
