Switch to Switch redundancy

Hello comunity,

Iam struggling for a solution in this situation:

a) 2 Switches GS724T400TV4 ProSafe 24 Ports Gigabit Smart Switch one with firmware version 6.1.9 and the other 6.1.4.

b) 3 Servers Connected with 2 network cards on each; Switch 1 Vlan 110 (172.16.15.0/24) port 1,2,3 and Switch 2 (192.168.8.0/24) port 1,2,3 Vlan 111

c) Two different routers connected on each switch configured to comunicate with each vlan

Router 1 connected to Switch 1 at port 16.

Router 2 connected to Switch 2 at port 16.

I was wondering if : from port 1 of switch 1 to communicate with router 2 at switch 2 and the oposite from the router to the switch.

Can o port of the switch in this case example port 1 be part of two vlans at the same time?

 Is it possible to configure switch to switch redundancy ?

Hi @emullaraj,

 

Welcome to our community! 🙂

 

Yes, It is possible to communicate these 2 VLANs even if they do have different WANs. You may try to apply these settings:

 

- Create VLAN routing on both switches. Go to Routing> VLAN > VLAN Routing Wizard. Take note that this only works per interface.

S1 - VLAN 100 - 192.168.100.1 /24 (for the connection of static routing)

Assign this to port 16 - U

S1 - VLAN 110 - 172.16.15.1 /24

Assign the devices that needs to be routed to the other VLAN.

 

S2 - VLAN 100 - 192.168.100.2 /24 (for the connection of static routing)

Assign this to port 16 - U

S2 - VLAN 111 - 192.168.8.1 /24

Assign the devices that needs to be routed to the other VLAN.

 

Then create a static route on both switches. Go to Routing > Route Configuration.

S1 - Destination Network Address : 192.168.8.0 / 24; Next Hop address: 192.168.100.2; Preference 1

S2 - Destination Network Address : 172.16.15.0  / 24; Next Hop address: 192.168.100.1; Preference 1

 

Please let me know if you do have question. I tried to replicate this and it did work.
