We have two serveriron 24xl's that we are testing and trying to deploy in a fault tolerant design within our datacenter. We are looking to deply the serverirons in active/passive HA configuration in the following matter on the same local network. This may not be possible, which may not be possible, but we are open to best practice suggestions.
SW1 ---- SW2
| X |
- fw's in active passive setup which requires ports on both firewalls to be active (rx&tx). if connected directly to the serverirons, then the firewall connected to passive SI doesn't rx/tx
- All real servers are connected to the switches.
This configuration with the network layout shown above didn't work. Below is our config. Thank you in advcance for your assistance. We would like to keep a flat local network but fault tolerance and support/best practice config is most important.
