Setting up LACP between the F5 machine and two firewalls in cluster
We have a Viprion2250 connected via one trunk using 0x8100 Ether type to our standalone firewall (8interfaces in the trunk - that is 8x10G each)
So basically we have one viprion to connected to one Fortigate (firewall) via LACP
Now we purchased another Fortigate firewall to make it cluster (active/standby)
Can we just create another LACP trunk and add the same VLANs to it and connect it to the standby firewall and it will work ?
I know some will say purchase a switch and do the connection via switch, but we're trying to eliminate the switch option.
It is pssible to do it without switch and connect both LACPs to both firewall active and standby ? will this work ?
Has anyone done this and it is working for him ?
