Active/Active HA in VWire Mode

Hi Gents,

I'm just wandering if the Floating IP or ARP load-sharing configuration are required in vwire mode. or they are only required in layer-3 mode.

all of the documentation I've read about that aren't clear enough.

Regards,

Maher

They are not required for VWire as interfaces configured as such don't have IP addresses and don't participate in Layer 2/3. If you have an additional interface that is in L3 mode (to support Captive Portal redirect mode for example), then you can add a floating IP for that interface if desired.

Thanks Craig,

I have another question, if I'm using layer-3 sub-interfaces in active/active mode, is it possible to create ARP load-sharing for each sub-interface on both PA.

by EX: sub-interface 1.102 with IP address 192.168.102.2 on PA-1 and 192.168.102.3 on PA-2  ARP IP 192.168.102.1

sub-interface 1.110 with IP address 192.168.110.2 on PA-1 and 192.168.110.3 on PA-2   ARP IP 192.168.110.1

is that possible?

Regards,

Maher
