Network based on 2x F10 E1200i

Hello All, I've got a two F10 F10 E1200i, and I would like to set up a redundant network on them. I have a couple of questions. 1. How to make VLAN routing on those devices? On one F10 (named F01) I've created two VLAN interfaces:

- VLAN 2 (with 192.168.2.1 /24 IP address assigned),

- VLAN 3 (with 192.168.3.1 /24 IP address assigned).

I've connected one device to port with untagged VLAN 2 (with 192.168.2.10 /24 gateway: 192.168.2.1) and another device to port with untagged VLAN 3 (with 192.168.3.10 /24 gateway: 192.168.3.1).

Device with IP 192.168.2.10, can ping gateway 192.168.2.1, but cannot ping 192.168.3.1 and 192.168.3.10. And the same story with the second device in VLAN 3 - it can ping only the gateway 192.168.3.1 What do I need to do to make those devices visible for each other? And any other devices in the future also?

2. The second part is more complicated I'm guessing: I would like to make F10 redundant - so if one F10 will goes down, second will server the same gateways. Is it even possible with F10 E1200i devices? But here I don't know where to start even.

Hi,

For the redundancy question the best method is to enable stacking on the switches so that they operate as a single switch. Page 4 https://www.force10networks.com/CSPortal20/KnowledgeBase/DOCUMENTATION/CLIConfig/FTOS/VS_CONFIG_6-Ma...

 

The VLANs should be able to communicate once you give them an IP address. Did you do a shutdown and no shutdown on the ports? Page 280 https://www.force10networks.com/CSPortal20/KnowledgeBase/DOCUMENTATION/CLIConfig/FTOS/Archive/E_Conf...

Thanks for the reply!

How stack should be done physically? Just connect via Te ports? I was thinking about VRRP for this, but the stack is some kind of option.

For the VLANs - no they are not communicating for each other. I think I might use VRF?

Yes with the te ports. VRRP would work as well. I would try VRF and see if that does allow the VLANs to communicate.

Re: Network based on 2x F10 E1200i

When I'm trying to add vrf forwarding to any VLAN interface, I'm getting the following error:

F10(conf-if-vl-20)#ip vrf forwarding VRF01
% Error: Port is not in default mode Vl 20.
F10-01#show run int vlan 20
!
interface Vlan 20
 ip address 10.2.0.1/17
 no shutdown

What is wrong with this VLAN interface configuration?

Are the individual ports in LACP as well as the port channel?
