I am currently going through the process of upgrading our office LAN using Aruba 8320 as the core switches using VSX and Active Gateways, however I was wondering if you can configure a secondary Active Gateway on the same VLAN?
I have tried to look through the configuration commands but it I cannot find any obvious options and if I try to add another active gateway with different IP address and MAC it just overwriters the original, I have also looked online but there does not seem to be a lot of documentation at the moment.
Ideally I would like to seperate these IP ranges onto different VLANs or assign a new larger subnet to the VLAN but for various reasons this is not possible.
I am currently running version 10.01.0048, please let me know if you need more information.
I not sure if it is possible...
to have try to add a secondary active gateway with another MAC address ?
according to "ArubaOS-CX Virtual Switching Extension (VSX) Guide for 10.02", Chapter 3 VSX, subchapter "Active gateway over VSX":
So I think, you're out of luck...
Thanks for the reply, looks like I will have to go away and rethink my approach.
Correct, this is not availabe yet and not soon. Sorry.
Do you know if this is now possible?
YES. This is available starting 10.4.
Limit is 32 secondary IPv4 addresses.
Works for IPv6 as well.
Please make sure "no ip icmp redirect" is configured as well.
Yes, it is possible with 10.04
Thanks, i will try this soon
Hello, I am using version 10.06.0010 on an 8325 and would like to configure a second active gateway in VLAN 1. Still, I don't know what the order was. Is there a template?
