I know there has been some discussion in the forum on the topic of redundant config options with a pair of failover ltm's, however I have not seen any authoritative answer on the topic.
Is there any in-depth tech doc / whitepaper by f5 folks on the f5's implementation of the STP options available in the ltm config?
What are the recommended practices when deploying ltms in a highly available environment?
As a typical scenario - pair of two trunked 6500's and a pair of redundant ltm's - what are the implications of connecting each of the ltm's to each of the 6500's over the one-to-one scenario?
The way I see it, having a dual-homed linking on each of the F5's should give you the ability to do some intelligent vlan distribution over each of the trunked uplinks, such as having odd-numbered vlans taking a different trunk than even-numbered vlans.
Having a dual-homed config, which stp option should be enabled on the ltms?
