Dear All


I have configured the VCS between two VDX swicth and everything is gone well , the customer asking to connect the logical chassie of VDX with SRX juniper firewall with two uplink from VDX every uplink from one switch to acheive load balnacing & High availability


The Juniper guy asking to connect VDX with SRX by OSPF protocol , what i have did


1- i have shutdown the R-Bridge2

2- configured the OSPF under R-bridge 1


Now the OSPF is up and working fine between VDX and SRX , the problem is once i switch on the R-bridge 2 and come online the OSPF is goes down !!! my question


DO i need to configure the OSPF also under R-bridge 2 also ?? if yes WHY if the VCS technology taking about the database distribution cross all VDX's are membered on the VCS ... i mean the configuration should be copied to R-bridge 2 without need to re-configure OSPF under R-bridge 2


Please advise

OSPF in a VCS Fabric must be configured on each RBRIDGE that you want to use as a router, it is not fabric wide.
