We have 2 *WS-C4500X-32 as a VSS pair. One of the switches VSL links went down. Say below scenario occurs.
"An VSS active chassis that detects a dual-active condition shuts down all of its non-VSL interfaces (except interfaces configured to be excluded from shutdown) to remove itself from the network, and waits in recovery mode until the VSL links have recovered. "
I noticed WS-C4500X-32 have separate Management port. Is there any possibility of accessing the switch via this interface?
On Checking, I found below
dual-active recovery [switch num] ip address ip-address ip-mask
The command accepts up to three IP addresses - one for switch 1, one for switch 2 and one global IP address. When a switch enters recovery mode, it picks up the configured switch-specific recovery IP address for its management interface. If the switch-specific IP address is unconfigured, the global recovery IP address is used. If neither the switch-specific nor global recovery IP addresses are configured, the fastEthernet1 management interface on the switch has no IP address active, when the switch enters recovery mode.
The normal IP address configured for fastEthernet1 in interface configuration mode is retained in the configuration.
Say In the customer Config Below is configured.
dual-active recovery ip address 10.10.10.1 255.255.255.0
One of the switches (Switch 1)is actively forwarding the traffic.
Other switch (Switch 2)has all the interfaces shut except the VSL interfaces.
Now, 10.10.10.1 will be assigned to Switch 1 or Switch 2?
