Welcome to NYC Networkers
So where the hell have you been? Its been almost 3 months since I wrote a blog post and you might be wondering what I’ve been up to. :)
We all know in HSRP and VRRP we can track an interface, but what if the ISP doesnt give you a direct drop? What if its one of those fiber converter boxes, so the only way the HSRP tracking would take effect, is if the actual converer box would go down. That won’t help us since the ISP is down, but the box is up, thus HSRP will never do it’s job properly.
How funny life is, something I tried to get away from I now find myself learning with a passion!
So why do I want to install an Arista vEOS? Well, this is like saying “why should I buy a fully loaded Mercedez Benz S Class coupe, or a Telsa S model over a Nissan Sentra (calm down, I drove a Sentra for almost 5 years!).
An interesting find today, probably one of the reason why Cisco’s CCNA/CCNP exams focus alot on the part numbers of its Nexus line.
Guys, whatever you do — don’t upgrade your 10.9 servers to a 10.10 — unless you don’t mind waiting a few minutes to open up a file share.
