ArubaOS-CX Secondary Active Gateways

Hi All,


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.

Re: ArubaOS-CX Secondary Active Gateways



according to "ArubaOS-CX Virtual Switching Extension (VSX) Guide for 10.02", Chapter 3 VSX, subchapter "Active gateway over VSX":




  • Only one IPv4 and IPv6 active gateway can be configured on an SVI.



So I think, you're out of luck...
