Server Iron chassis interoperability

Hi all,

I need some insight on Server Iron chassis interoperability, the info I was unable to find in the documentation.

What are exact differences between SI400 and SI-GT 4-slot chassis, just chassis?

Actually, I have SI-GT EGC16 with WSM6-1 and J-B16GC in production, and want to set up hot standby load balancer pair. I was offered SI400 chassis with identical module set, WSM6-1 and J-B16GC. Would it work as a standby device (assuming usual notes on firmware versions etc.)?

Thanks!

Re: Server Iron chassis interoperability

Are you talking about an SI400 or an SI450?

Adam,

Chassis were quoted as SI400, not SI450.

Thanks!

Hmmm... this sounds a bit strange but I guess this is an old SI400 chassis using a current WSM module with a JetCore linecard. It is possible to use this together with an SI GT EGC16 in an HA cluster as long as the module and the software release are identical.

Adam,

It sounded _very_ strange to me as well. Correct, this is an old chassis using current modules. Thank you for the answer.
