I want to do Inter Vlan routing with redudancy. Actualy i have got this:
2 Cisco ASR 1002
Poc: PowerConnect M8024-k
BLADE LAME1: DELL BLADE with Vsphere 5.1 and Distributed Virtual Switch and loadbalancing between the 4 NIC (10Gb/s)
Every connection are in Trunk mode and RSTP
Everything is working very well but all the trafic between the vlan need to go the cisco to route.
I would like to do inter vlan routing in the F10 and M8024 siwtch and keep the cisco to output Network (Internet)
And i want to keep redundancy.
Can i do VRRP with 4 switch ? and with F10 and Powerconnect ?
Maybe OSPF can do this ?
You have the right idea with using VRRP, but we cannot VRRP four separate switches. I am not sure
How close these switches physically are to each other. But in order to get this to work you would be looking at stacking the Force 10 with each other, and then stacking the PowerConnects with each other. Once that is done then setup VRRP between the two stacks.
Here is an article on setting up VRRP on the PowerConnect switch.
And here is one for the Force 10.
Ensuring the switches are at the most current firmware can help with switch interoperability.
Yes you can still have redundancy with the stacks. Once stacked, any connection to a device that uses more than one port would need to be set to a LAG. I don't see anything wrong with having the Cisco do the routing, but at the same time you can certainly set it up the way you are planning and it will work, it just takes some reconfiguring.
