I got 2 internet links from a same ISP. Both links share a list of public LAN IPs. I got 2 MX100 which i would like to setup HA for both MXs.
Please take note that internet 1 is active and internet 2 is passive. Router 1 and 2 are on BGP that is configured by the ISP.
I attached a network diagram on the setup that we would like to have. As per our ISP, we can assign public LAN IPs from our pool to both routers LAN port 1 & 2 and MX internet port and Port 2
1. When i add a warm spare, what uplink IP option should i use?
2. For question 1 and If i use virtual IP, can i use one of the public LAN IP? What is the WAN 1 Shared IP and WAN 2 Shared IP?
3. If MX1 currently connected to 3 Meraki switches, do i need connect the 3 switches to MX2 as well?
The WAN IP for ISP portion and the CPE device(the router provided by the ISP) are on /30.
Internet 1 with 2 IP of 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11
Internet 2 with 2 IP of 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124
The pool of public LAN IPs(provided by the ISP) are on /28 starting from 126.96.36.199 - 143 and these IPs are tagged to Internet 1 & 2.
The public LAN IP are in same subnet for R1/R2 Port 1 & 2 and MX as well. My apologies if my explanation is too confusing
** Ignore the 1st diagram in my first post. I uploaded the correct diagram in this post **
It sounds like Router1 and Router2 LAN ports should be in the same layer 2 domain then. If the routers have a switch module you may be able to just plug them directly into each other. Internet1 on each MX would then plug into their respective router.
Otherwise you are going to need to provide a switch to accomplish this. Each router's LAN port should plug into the switch, and only Internet1 on each MX should then be plugged into this switch (along with the two router LAN ports).
Thank you for your reply. For now, what i know is that my ISP will provide Cisco ISR4321 router. I unsure if the router comes with NIM-ES2-8 module (https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/routers/4000-series-integrated-services-routers-is...).
I need to check with my ISP.
