Dell Force10 S4810 Redundancy configuration

Jump to solution

Hi,

I recently got responsibility for 2x S4810 switches in our network. Im not very familiar with Dell network equipment, but i have a lot of experience with the cisco product range. 

The Dell switches need to be configured for HA (I believe they are not configured for HA now)
So, for the HA configuration on S5810 Dell switches. How do you guys do it?
Do you set up VRRP and VLT between the switches? or would stacking be the best way to go?

 

This is for an ESXI environment.

Thanks in advance,

Hi,

VRRP and VLT is a more redundant configuration than stacking. Page 955 http://downloads.dell.com/manuals/all-products/esuprt_ser_stor_net/esuprt_networking/esuprt_net_fxd_...

Thanks! Exactly the answer i was looking for!

Do you know if the Redundancy auto-sync command related to the stacking configuration?

boot system stack-unit 0 primary system: B:
boot system stack-unit 0 secondary system: A:
boot system stack-unit 0 default system: A:
!
redundancy auto-synchronize full

It is for stacking only. Page 660 http://downloads.dell.com/manuals/all-products/esuprt_ser_stor_net/esuprt_networking/esuprt_net_fxd_...

Josh,

In an environment with two S4148s with OS10 as the aggregate/core switches in single VLT domain that connects to 10 x N2000 stacks. Would you recommend

VLT + Peer Routing
VLT + Peer Routing + VRRP
VLT + VRRP

And why?
