I am attempting to configure HA on the data ports of the controllers. In the event that the Data interfaces on controllerA is not accessible then ControllerB should take over responsibility for the IP traffic destined to ControllerA’s ifgrp.
Commands compiled for this tasks are as follows:
Commands for ControllerA:
ifgrp create single nameofsec-levelcontA trk1,trk2 #create second level ifgrp on controllerA
ifconfig nameofsec-levelcontA partner nameofsec-levelcontB #set partner command so that controllerA will take over for ControllerB in the event that the second level ifgrp is not accessible.
ifconfig nameofsec-levelcontA 192.0.2.4 netmask 255.255.255.0 #configure an IP address for the second level interface on controllerA
Commands for ControllerB
ifgrp create single nameofsec-levelcontB trk1,trk2 #create second level ifgrp on controllerB
ifconfig nameofsec-levelcontB partner nameofsec-levelcontA #set partner command so that controllerB will take over for ControllerA in the event that the second level ifgrp is not accessible.
ifconfig nameofsec-levelcontB 192.0.2.5 netmask 255.255.255.0 #configure an IP address for the second level interface on controllerB
