VSS Active-Active Chassis

Hello,

The 6509 Series Switches support the scenario VSS Active-Active Chassis, I would like to setup both switch's as one virtual switch but working at the same time, not with Active - Stand By Chassis.

My plans it to create PortChannel accross both Switches 6509 in order to have 2 links one connected to one slot/switch and the other connected to slot/switch in the second 6509 for servers redundancy.

Regards

Hi,

You would not have any issue creating a PortChannel and have one link to one chassis and the other link to the other chassis.  Having a server with 2 NICs connecting to a set of 6500 switches in VSS mode is an ideal situation. In VSS setup, there is a primary and a stand-by switch, this means only the primary Sup controlling both chassis but both chassis are forwarding.
