FT Interface Configuration Mode Commands

FT interface configuration mode commands allows you to configure redundancy parameters for the fault-tolerant (FT) VLAN. The FT VLAN is a dedicated interface that the ACE uses exclusively for redundancy traffic (such as heartbeat, state, and replication packets). For more information about configuring redundancy on the ACE, see the Administration Guide, Cisco ACE Application Control Engine.

To create an FT VLAN and access FT interface configuration mode, use the ft interface vlan command in configuration mode. The CLI prompt changes to (config-ft-intf). For information about the commands in FT interface configuration mode, see the following commands.

Use the no form of this command to remove an FT VLAN from the redundancy configuration.

ft interface vlan vlan_id

no ft interface vlan vlan_id

Syntax Description

vlan_id

Identifier of an existing VLAN that you want to use as the FT VLAN. Enter an integer from 2 to 4094.

Usage Guidelines

All commands in this mode require the System feature in your user role. For details about role-based access control (RBAC) and user roles, see the Virtualization Guide, Cisco ACE Application Control Engine.

To remove an FT VLAN from the redundancy configuration, first dissociate it from the FT peer using the no form of the (config-ft-peer) ft-interface vlan command and then enter the no ft interface vlan command in configuration mode.

Examples

To configure an FT VLAN and access FT group configuration mode, enter:

host1/Admin(config)# ft interface vlan 4000
host1/Admin(config-ft-intf)#
 
   

To delete the FT VLAN configuration, enter:

host1/Admin(config)# no ft interface vlan 4000

(config-ft-peer) ft-interface vlan

(config-ft-intf) ip

To assign an IP address to the fault-tolerant (FT) VLAN, use the ip command. Use the no form of this command to remove the IP address from the configuration.

ip address ip_address netmask

no ip address ip_address netmask

Syntax Description

address ip_address

Specifies the IP address of the FT VLAN. Enter an IP address in dotted-decimal notation (for example, 192.168.12.1).

netmask

Subnet mask of the FT VLAN. Enter a subnet mask in dotted-decimal notation (for example, 255.255.255.0).

(config-ft-intf) peer ip

(config-ft-intf) peer ip

To allow the local member of the fault-tolerant (FT) group to communicate with the remote peer, use the peer ip command to configure an IP address for the remote peer. Use the no form of this command to remove the IP address from the peer configuration.

peer ip address ip_address netmask

no peer ip address ip_address netmask

Syntax Description

address ip_address

Specifies the IP address of the remote peer. Enter an IP address in dotted-decimal notation (for example, 192.168.12.15).

netmask

Subnet mask of the remote peer. Enter a subnet mask in dotted-decimal notation (for example, 255.255.255.0).

Examples

For example, to enable the FT VLAN, enter:

host1/Admin(config-ft-intf)# no shutdown
 
   

To disable the FT VLAN after you have enabled it, enter:

host1/Admin(config-ft-intf)# shutdown
