CoreSwitch - Virtual Switch



  • Hello,

    I have 2 HP 10500 switches installed in 2 datacenters, interconnected with 10 Gbps links and configured with the IRF technology (this is the equivalent to Cisco VSS, Virtual Switching System). The 2 switches are seen as one virtual switch with one name and one management IP address.

    In i-doit, I have configured 2 switches with several interfaces and a number of ports. They are installed in different racks and in different locations.
    I also have configured a "Stacking" with the 2 switches has members.

    My problem is when I want to configure an "LACP trunks".
    I could create a logical port on the 2 switches and use the "parent port" attribute to make a link between the 2 switches but this does not represent correctly the situation. I would have to choose one of the 2 switches to connect the trunk with the trunk on another switch. This is not correct, in the reality, the trunk is created in the virtual switch, not in one of the members.

    What would be better is to be able to create a logical port on the stacking that is linked with physical ports on the member switches.

    Is it possible to do that ?
    Is there another way to modelise my situation ?

    Thanks in advance

    Didier

    What you can do is to create a logical port on each of the physical switches. Then create a "VRRP/HSRP Cluster" object and add the two logical ports in the VRRP member category. It's a bit redundant because you now have two objects representing the switch stack, but we do not have a 100% representation of VSS/IRF techology at the moment.



  • Hello,

    Is it planned in a near future ?

    Thanks

    Yes it's planned, but not in the near future. I'm happy if we manage to set this feature in the end of this year, maybe beginning of next year.

    I tried it on the demo system but I cannot find, how die create a VRRP/HSRP Cluster.

    The object type "VRRP / HSRP Cluster" is deactivated in the online demos. You may enable them with the "Quick Configuration Wizard" under "Administration" > "CMDB settings".
