Installing VSS

This section outlines the commands used to enable VSS from a pair of standalone 6509-V-E switches. We will build a cluster with the configuration shown in Figure 17-9.

Since the switches start as standalone switches, we need to start configuring them individually. Once we’ve done that, I’ll show the matching configuration for the switch on the right. First, we need to put the switch into stateful failover mode, which we do as follows:

6509-VE-Left#conf t
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
6509-VE-Left(config)#redundancy
6509-VE-Left(config-red)#mode ?
  rpr  Route Processor Redundancy
  sso  Stateful Switchover
6509-VE-Left(config-red)#mode sso
