Active-Active High availability configuration

Hallo

I’m trying to setup a active-active high availabilty configuration in a C7000 enclosure with 2 GbE2C Layer 2/3 ethernet Blade switches.

I’ve got a test construction with two BL460c G7 devices and need to setup Hyper-v on both servers.

I followed the application guide, but things are not totaly clear. Hopefully someone can help me out to get it to work!


Switch A:
if 1: 192.168.1.100 (VLAN 10 with port 20)
if 2: 192.168.2.101 (VLAN 20 with port 21)
if 3: 10.0.1.100
if 4: 10.0.2.101


gw 1: 192.168.1.1
gw 2: 192.168.2.1


vr 1: vrid 1, if 1, 192.168.1.200, tracking on ports, prio 101
vr 2: vrid 2, if 2, 192.168.2.200, tracking on ports, prio 100


STP 1: off


Switch B:
if 1: 192.168.1.101 (VLAN 10 with port 20)
if 2: 192.168.2.100 (VLAN 20 with port 21)
if 3: 10.0.1.101
if 4: 10.0.2.100

gw 1: 192.168.2.1
gw 2: 192.168.1.1

 

vr 1: vrid 1, if 1, 192.168.1.200, tracking on ports, prio 100
vr 2: vrid 2, if 2, 192.168.2.200, tracking on ports, prio 101

 

STP 1: off

 

Device Bay 1:
NIC 1 : 10.0.1.1
NIC 2: 10.0.2.1

Gateway: ?

Device Bay 2:
NIC 1 : 10.0.1.2
NIC 2: 10.0.2.2

Gateway: ?

 

I’ve got two layer 2 switches in front of this construction. What settings need to be done on these switches?
Must these switches be VRRP capable?

 

Also a firewall is active in front of the two layer 2 switches. What settings must be done on this device?

 

Tnx...
