    Posted Apr 22, 2024 11:57 AM

    Hi Expert,

    I am new with Aruba product, i have configured stack 2 switch 6300M Version: FT.10.10.1070 following this guide from Aruba

    https://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/AOS-CX/10.09/PDF/vsf.pdf

    with show vsf 

    Force Autojoin : Disabled

    Autojoin Eligibility Status: Not Eligible

    MAC Address : 5c:a4:7d:4f:ea:80

    Secondary : 2

    Topology : Ring

    Status : No Split

    Split Detection Method : mgmt 

    switch(config)# vsf split-detect mgmt

    The management interface of conductor and Standby connected directly. 

    Could you please guide how can i check the split detection working properly ? 

    Thanks

    one way to check it is the output of the "show vsf" which indicates that split detection is enabled and it is the out of band mgmt interface.

    you can also test the vsf link failure by disconnecting the stacking cables and observing the behavior. But before that I suggest to go through the VSF best practice guide which covers Split stack operations and various scenarios

    Hi Ariyap,

    Sorry for late response, in the document which you send me,  VSF best practice guide

    VSF split detection
    In order to mitigate the effects of a VSF split, a split-detection (also known as Multi-Active Detection, or MAD) method should
    be configured and utilized. The 6300 Switch Series supports using a connection between the OOBM ports on the primary and
    secondary members to detect when a split has occurred. The OOBM ports can either be directly connected using an Ethernet
    cable, or connected to a common Layer 2 broadcast domain via a dedicated OOBM switch or network. In the latter case, the
    OOBM ports on the primary and secondary can be assigned a global stack OOBM IP address and used normally for remote
    management

    Both switch's management port connected directly .

    My configure:

    Switch# show interface mgmt
      Address Mode                  : dhcp
      Admin State                   : up
      Link State                    : up
      Mac Address                   : 5c:a4:7d:4f:ea:70
      IPv4 address/subnet-mask      :
      Default gateway IPv4          :
      IPv6 address/prefix           :
      IPv6 link local address/prefix: fe80::5ea4:7dff:fe4f:ea81/64
      Default gateway IPv6          :
      Primary Nameserver            :
      Secondary Nameserver          :
      Tertiary Nameserver           :

    Do i need to configure IP address for Management port ?

    Thanks so much.

    no you dont, just connect the OOBM interfaces directly.
