RSPAN Configuration for Cisco 6500 Switches

Depending on the IOS Version and platform, the Remote SPAN configuration can be a bit different. In this post I will be configuration RSPAN session between a Cisco 6506 switch running IOS Version 12.2(33)SXI and Cisco 6509 running IOS Version 12.2(17d)SXB1.

 

Topology

RSPAN

Configuration

 

Source: Cisco 6506 (IOS Version 12.2(33)SXI)

1. Configure VLAN which will be used to carry traffic across the trunk link. If the VTP pruning is enabled, make sure its not enabled for the VLAN you are using for RSPAN session.

 

vlan 55
name RSPAN
remote-span

 

2. Create the monitor session with type RSPAN

 

monitor session 1 type rspan-source
source interface Gi6/12
destination remote vlan 55

 

Destination: Cisco 6509 (IOS Version 12.2(17d)SXB1)

Configuration would be a bit different from previous for 6509

 

 

 

vlan 55
name RSPAN
remote-span

monitor session 1 destination interface Gi2/20
monitor session 1 source remote vlan 55
