Port Pairing in WSA S695

Hi Experts,

My customer is asking for Port Pairing (NIC Teaming) for Data port. The customer is going to use only one Data Port for to and fro traffic and want to pair P1 and P2 interface.

My question to you is if there is any downside of using port pairing feature in WSA appliances?

 

Regards,

Jay

WSA does not support NIC Teaming, unfortunately.

 

It is good to have features if anyone buys 1 Gig port - the next box is 10Gig port only. ( need to be careful while ordering), what ports required.

 

it should have 2 GIG port-channel features, good if Cisco considers this feature long pending.

Hi there,

 

You are looking for NIC pairing feature. It is available in CLI -> etherconfig -> pairing.

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/security/wsa/wsa11-7/user_guide/b_WSA_UserGuide_11_7/b_WSA_UserGuide_11_7_appendix_011000.html?bookSearch=true#con_1092433

 

Please note that the feature creates an Active/Standby pair, so only 1 interface in the pair will be sending/receiving traffic and 2nd one will take over in case of the 1st one fails.

 

Please vore if you find it helpful.

Thank you for the document, but I was disappointed, the feature I was looking bundling to increase the capacity, not active standby.

It might look confusing but it is an active/standby pairing only
