ACE in routed mode design

Current topology in network is such: web servers with content needing to be load balanced are in vlan 35 and these servers are directly connected to Core switch (two 6509 VSS) via 20 Gb EtherChannel. Vlan 35 also spans some other switches with other servers residing in this vlan. Additionally, there are dozens of another vlans (including external users) that need to communicate with web servers. IP addresses of these two web servers are: 192.168.35.1/24 and 192.168.35.2/24 accordingly with default gateway 192.168.35.254/24 (SVI on Core switch). Currently these ip addresses are used by management and other purposes and need to be reachable for same purposes after configuring load balancing with ACEs - it is needed to have direct access to servers behind ACE. How I can do that using ACE in routed mode?

Hi Thorr,

Dynamically NAT or PAT the client IP addresses to guarantee the traffic is passing through the ACE in the way back.

Hi Ahmad,

Now I'm stuck between routed mode and one-arm mode design. Which one is more appropriate for these requirements?
