Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509 SUP720-3B / Dual Link With Failover And Redundant Configuration?

Feb 24, 2013

I have a two fiber connection from our Central Office(6513) to Remote office (6509). I have a requirement that on the remote office if one of the fiber goes down, the second fiber should work as a failover. I am planning to use SUP720-3B SFP to connect to the CO.

Can I connet one fiber to Sup720-3b G5/1 & another fiber connection to G5/2?  or Can I connet one fiber to Sup720-3b G5/1 & another fiber connection to G6/2? I am running EIGRP between sites. Any sample config.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509 Redundant Sup720 - Slave Boots Into ROMmon

Oct 24, 2012

I'm fairly new to networking and need to migrate an old core to a new core. I have a 6509-e Switch that I had an RMA on one of my 720 sup cards. After receiving the sup card I swapped my slave out with the new one, expecting it to boot into ios. It booted into Roman. I tried to boot the image manually and it did the same thing. I also tried to boot from my flash and, again, booted into ROMmon.
Question: If i configure and change the boot to boot from image it tells me i need to reset or power cycle first. Will this reset the entire switch? As this is production I'd rather not.
I am at home now, but I can supply any logs/hardware model/configs tomorrow. I thought I would see if this is an easy fix.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509 - Upgrade Sup720 To Sup2T In VSS Cluster

Jun 21, 2012

I support an active VSS cluster using 2 x 6509E chassis with single Supervisor 3C modules in each chassis. I want to replace these with Supervisor 2T modules. All my service modules and line cards are supported with the Sup2Ts (I will also be implementing 6908 modules). Is there a document on the Cisco site for this? I haven't found one though I can find plenty that describe how to do a software upgrade.
(Note, I have a 3rd (non VSS) 6509E chassis that is also part of this core network and that will maintain VTP/V LAN's etc).

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Setting Up VRF-lite On Redundant 6509-E To Account For Chassis Failure?

May 15, 2013

setting up VRF-lite on redundant 6509-E chassis to account for chassis failure?   Let's say I have 2x 6509-Es configured with HSRP for 2 vlans, ServerA and ServerB.  So
interface Vlan10
description ServerA VLAN
ip address
ip flow ingress
standby 1 ip
standby 1 priority 105

I now need to create an environment where the Server VLANs can be provided for two customers and they need to be wholly separate.   On 6509-A, I make VRF CustomerA  and VRF CustomerB  and I assign Vlan10 to VRF CustomerA and Vlan20 to CustomerB.   Do I create the SAME VRFs on 6509-B with the same logic?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509 - VSS Active Chassis Both FWSM And VSS Failover

Sep 25, 2012

Any have experience on triggered failover on VSS deployment with 1 VS-720-10G-3C in each chassis? I tried using "redundancy force-switchover" but after that the 20G VSL is flapping up & down and cannot be up normally, we got 1 FWSM in each chassis, any configuration need to fit in this kind deployment? BTW, if I shutdown the power source of VSS active chassis, both FWSM & VSS can failover normally.

Cisco WAN :: Dual ISP Failover Configuration 891W?

Apr 18, 2012

What I currently have is a Cisco 891W Router as well as two ISP's (both with dynamic IP's) in.  I'm currently just running one of my modems into the 891 through the FE8 port and then if for some reason I have an internet failure switching the ISP modems.  What I'm wondering is if there is a fairly simple way to configure (and attach) both modems to this router and then set it up to handle this failover automatically?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Dual Supervisors In A 6509-E Did Not Come Up Correctly

Jan 23, 2013

One of the two supervisors in an IOS 6509-E did not come back up after a power outage.  The failed supervisor in slot 5 was replaced and it booted successfully.  However, the supervisor in slot 5 only booted up to a "Cold" state.  I did notice the Hw version of the replacement module in slot 5 is 4.9 while the Hw version in the supervisor module in slot 6 is 4.8.  What command do I need to issue to bring the supervisor module in slot 5 from "Cold" to "Hot"?

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509 - Nexus Dual Homing With N2000

Oct 24, 2011

I am trying to work up a config based on equipment that was ordered before I joined my current employer.
I will be deploying N2Ks at the top of each rack.  Each N2K will be dual homed to two different N5K's. Being new to the Nexus, I understand that the N2K's have no brains and are dependent on the N5K's they connected to. Wasnt sure how to tell each 5K that the 2K that was dual connected to it needed to be able to move between N5K's based on failure/availability. I havent been able to find a sample config of what this will look like anywhere on the Nexus section of the Cisco site.
The next step after this will be to connect N5K_1 to blade on a 6509 and N5K_2 to a different blade on the same 6509.  I will be installing two of the 10Gig blades in the 6509. Havent been able to find any sample configs on what this would look like either.  We are upgrading the sup engines on the 6509 to the new 2T version.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: RV016 Dual Wan Configuration

Oct 15, 2012

I have recently  implimented an RV016 device into our network. We have a bonded T1  service with Paetec/Windstream (5 static IPs) and also a cable  connection with Comcast (no static IP). The T1 has been our primary  connection, and our MX and A records all use this IP address. I have the  rules set and using a one-to-one NAT setup with our 5 IPs. Everything  is working great with the T1 in place and email is flowing with no  problems, however when I connect the cable into the WAN2 port and try to  send email, its using that outbound connection, rather then the T1 and  our spam filter is blocking it. So the email is rejected and we get this  message below.

Delivery has failed to these recipients or groups: (  message wasn't delivered due to a permission or security issue. It may  have been rejected by a moderator, the address may only accept e-mail  from certain senders, or another restriction may be preventing delivery.
The following organization rejected your message: (our smtp spam relay)
The reason for being rejected is just because it doesn't recongnize the IP address/gateway it is coming from.
My  question is, how do I define that all email is sent out through our T1  connections IP address in the router?I see options for Advanced Routing  or Bandwidth Management, but not sure what one I need to configure as I  am not too familiar with these settings. I have Intelligent  Balancer(Auto Mode) enabled as well by default.
The reason  for adding the second internet connection is strictly for load  balencing and getting some more bandwidth in our location.

Cisco Switches :: SG300 Correct Configuration For Redundant Link Between Two Switch

Mar 9, 2012

I have two switch SG300-10 that need to be interconnect togheter with a simple redundant "cable fail safe" configuration.My idea is use the two uplink copper port of the first switch, connected to the two uplink copper port of the second switch.

How to create a working setup configuration? The first setup that i need, is with only one VLAN1 for all ports,
The second setup is with the VLAN1 assigned to the ports 1-2-3-4 of all the two switch, (linked togheter by uplink ports)
and the VLAN2 assigned to the ports 5-6-7-8 always linked togheter with the same uplink ports.
Is possible use the two uplink port at the same time, as cable fail safe? or use a uplink port 1 for the first group and the second uplink port for second group?
I need to use this configuration for audio cobranet transport, and i need to test the correct configuration for the primary and secondary audio stream, if can work togheter on the same VLAN or i need to separate the two stream, from start to the end.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509-E VSS Will Upgrade Rewrite The Configuration

Jan 22, 2013

I am planning on upgrading my 6509s to use VSS within the next few weeks.  I have checked all of the hardware and software prerequisites, and we are good to go from that perspective.I do have more of a procedural question- my switches are already configured and in production, VLANs, HSRP (3 IP addresses per VLAN- 1 per switch plus virtual IP), etc.  Does the VSS upgrade take all of this into account and rewrite the configuration correctly, or should I plan on redoing the entire config for the switches after the upgrade?

Cisco Application :: CSS 11503 Ether-channel Configuration For Redundant Server Link

Jun 18, 2011

I have already raised this discussion on "LAN, Switching and Routing" group. But I guess this is the right group for my queries. So I am sending my queries in this group again.
We are using CSS 11503 with one 16FE line card. We have connected 3 servers with redundant link. So FE1-2 in Server1, FE 3-4 in Server2 and FE5-6 in Server3. Our system team has configured APA in their servers as they are using HP-Ux.
1) Do we need to do any configuration at line card.

2) Do we need to do ether-channel at loadbalancer end. if yes, can you share me any cisco doc on how to do it.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509 - Configuration Register Is 0x2101 On Supervisor720?

Mar 13, 2012

Last night I've upgraded a catlyst 6509 (non-redundant), during the upgrade I# run into the problem that the 6509 only wants to boot from sup-bootflash, and that it took an old image from sup-bootflash.I deleted this old image and then the node came into rommon mode.There I did the boot command and refered to the correct image on disk1:Now the boot succeeded. Just in time before I run out of my maintenance window.
I did some investigation and looked into the supervisor (using attach 5 and remote command switch show boot) and detected that it's configuration register is on 0X2101 (This is because I run into problems a week ago because of a corrupt flash disk and changed this in rommon mode , without changing it back, I'm afraid I'm not totally known with the 6509)
Question is now how can I change the configuration register back to 0x2102 without any service interruption (It will cost me quit some goodwill if I have to boot the node for the third time in three weeks)?

Cisco Firewall :: ASA 5540 Redundant Interface Failover

May 8, 2011

I have two ASA 5540s, ver 8.4 configured in Active/Standby failover.I am also using the redundant interface feature for my Inside interface.  Gig0/0 is the active primary and Gig0/1 is standby.
I will activate failover monitoring of the Inside interface using the monitor inside command.
My question concerns the failover monitoring of the redundant interface.  If the gig0/0 connection were to fail would the Gig0/1 interface become Active, AND simultaneously result in a full device failover?
Or, does Gig0/1 of the Inside interface redundant pair simply become active and not change the Inside interface device failover state?  Thus NOT resulting in a device failover.

Cisco Application :: 6509-E SUP720 And SLB Limitations?

Does VSS introduce any limitations for SLB? Any other pitfalls/limitations we should be aware of?

Cisco WAN :: Sup720-10G 6509 - Multicasting In Same Vlan Broken

Oct 9, 2011

Currently we do not have multicat routing enabled on either of our 2x Sup720-10G 6509 Switches.  We have no intention of doing so either.  I am looking for clarification on how mutlicasting operates within a Vlan. 
IOS: s72033-ipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-33.SXH2a.bin
Our Vlan has IGMP snooping enabled.  Here is the output.
6509Switch#sh ip igmp inter vlan 25
Vlan25 is up, line protocol is up
  Internet address is
  IGMP is disabled on interface
we do not want to disable IGMP due to this one concern that I can't find documented. If we disable IGMP snooping on the vlan, what happens to multicast packets with a TTL > 1.  Do they get flooded to the entire switch and all Vlans?  Or does it stay within the Vlan?
