Failover Switch-Server

hello team,

 

I was wondering, I don't think it can be done with the equipment I have but I thought I might ask.,

 

Simple design,

Cisco1941 - Switch SG200 - Server ESXi

The server is connected on a port, belonging to Vlan 5 - 192.168.5.1 and goes out on internet through trunk.

 

Now the managers asked me, with the existing equipment if I can make another Vlan, vlan 20 with IP 192.168.5.252 so they can raise VMs in ESXi with 192.168.5.252 and the other halfs with 192.168.5.1.

I know that can't be done since its on same subnet...

Is there another way to achieve that? 2 gateways on same switch? or would I need another swtich with hsrp capabilties?

 

Many thanks

HA / Resilience means 2 device. if you do not have 2 Device, then you will not get HA/Resilience features.

 

Personally It  not make any sense create 2 VLAN in same device and deploy as HA.

 

Not sure this is make sense  for you ?

May Suggest Manager that buy another setup of equipment for HA, if the business like more Resilience and no downtime acceptable.

 

This is again business case with CAPEX and OPEX.
