Hi Daniel.



I'm not sure about your question.



But I think you want to cluster these two servers, and set the switch to handle the virtual IP address of this cluster; am I right?



If this is the way you want to do, and if the cluster supports LACP you just need to create a manual or static LACP group on the switch and set the ports which the cluster is connected.



If I'm wrong, please clarify your questions so I could try to help you further.

Re: 4500 switch

Hi again

Ok, so I managed to do Link aggression using 2 ports, with one port on lower rate made it to be as master port while the other one is higher, it works great high availability active / passive mode



My next question is, can I do the same thing on my switch but with active / active mode, like 2 web servers that contains the exact same data and the users one time accessing server 1 and in another time access the second server, is it possible to implement on this switch?



Thanks!
