Aruba 2920 Stack how can I setup backup default route

I have 4 Aruba 2920 switches setup in a stack confirmation.  I have several VLANS setup and a default Gateway of my Firewall for internet access.  I have a secondary Firewall connected to another ISP.  How would I configure the stack to use this secondary ISP if default gateway is not available?

 

Route Map?  Second gateway of last resort?  I don't mind doing the leg work just not sure where to start.

Greetings!

 

You should be able to set multiple routes to 0.0.0.0/0, pointing at different gateways, and use a different metric for each one (lower for the preferred gateway, higher for the backup).

Hi Matthew,

 

Can you please explain failover in that case? If primary link fails, will it failover to the backup one without any tracking?

The routes follow the state of the VLAN the route is associated with (2920 Multicast and Routing Guide for 16.05, page 54); if the VLAN associated with your primary gateway goes down, the switch will remove the route from its routing table and start utilizing the secondary gateway.  When the primary link comes back up, the primary gateway will be re-added to the routing table and the switch will resume using it.
