Interface configuration when migrating from 3600 to i2600

Hi,

 

I am migrating our LTM HA pair from 3600 to i2600 appliance.

 

Configuration migration is fine.

 

Physically I am planning to move over from originally 4x 1g RJ45 (3600) connection to 2x 10g SFP (i2600).

 

Originally we have 4 ethernet connections

  • Heartbeat A
  • Heartbeat B
  • DMZ data
  • LTM LAN data

 

Can above configuration be managed via the 2x 10g SFP port ?

You can.

As long as you use tagged vlans you can tag as many vlan IDs as you need through each interface.

Just need to make sure your switches support vlan tagging (802.1q) and you match the vlan IDs between the switches and the new BigIPs.

On the F5s you need to set vlans as tagged on the corresponding interfaces.

On the switches you need to make sure the interfaces are configued for vlan tagging and you include all vlan IDs your tagging from the F5s.

 

Hope that helps.

Sure you can. You need to configure different VLANs and share the same interface bundle.

agree with both above.

 

though a question about heartbeat a and hearbeat b, what exactly was the goal there? if it was two different phyical paths that isnt that useful anymore when you do everything on one link.

Thanks Guys,

 

Your suggestion helped. Tagged all required VLANs on both 10g interface and they are connected to redundant switches.

 

Cheers
