i am trying to create a VSM secondary but for some reason it just won't work, i have filled out all the information including the same domain ID but when i boot up the secondary all i see is a different switch name.
when i run show mod, i dont see the secondary in the list of VSM, does anyone have any troubleshooting ideas
I would do the following.
Take a back up of the primary VSM just to be safe. If it's on ESXi, copy run start, shut it down and clone it. Shouldn't take more than a few minutes.
For the secondary try creating it on the same ESXi host as the primary VSM. Assign the nics to all the same port-profiles as the primary.
See if that works.
Sorry for the delay, been out of the office
i have tried to create on the same host but no joy it never finds the primary VSM.
i get this error
SIOCSIFFLAGS permission denied
not sure what that is doing? any ideas?
thanks for your time
what is the output of the command "show system redundancy status" ??
the primary vsm should have the output
If there is "standalone"
you must enter the command "system redundany role primary" for the primary vsm
and "system redundany role secondary" for the secondary.
