Well i hvae installed and configured two Brocade ADX-1000F to load balance Microsoft Exchange 2010 (https/ssl) and IFS application (http) and upgraded their OS/Firmware and afterwards it is converted from Switch Code to Router Code and now i can only able to view and configure the Active-Active HA profile in the GUI interface and through CLI as well.
Client requirement is Hot-Standby (Active-Passive Mode) which can not get work because of ADX mode in Router Code.
Both ADX connected to the uplink Linksys-SRW-2024 Layer-2 Switch using their Eth-1 Port respectively...
Now when i enable the port Eth-1 on both ADX, my Microsoft Exchange and another IFS (Web based App) stops working.
When i disable the ADX-2 Eth-1 interface then the application becomes accessible. (Here ADX are not connected to each other)..
In order to crearte HA i use Eth-7 port on both ADX for HA. I use below mentioned commands:
interface ethernet 7
vlan 21 name HA by port
untagged ethe 7
With STP is OFF globally.
ADX-1 is having a sym-priority value-200 and ADX-2 is 199 making ADX-1 as a active owner of VIPs.
After this i configured command for various supported tcp/udp ports in use of application to synchronize the settings and traffic in case if ADX-1 goes down:
server port 80 port 443 port 4443 port 110 port 993 port 995 port 58080 port 1521 port 143
But after doing this and connecting both ADX using interface eth-7 application stops working and i can only able to use applciations when i disable the Eth-7 port on ADX-2 and also disabling Eth-1 port on ADX-1 for core connectivity...
Brocade ADX-Eth-1 interfaces, Servers and Firewall DMZ interface all connected to one uplink Layer-2 Switch and are in the same VLAN-1 and is a DMZ network....
Can anyone suggest me what configurations should i need to to at ADX to successfully run the HA when both ADX running in active-active mode and are connected to each other using HA port and VLAN instead of disabling the ports so that when a failover occurs or ADX-1 somehow goes down the second ADX can also serve the network ..
Looking forward for it...
