persistent IP 7-mode

david01845

I have a 7-mode HA pair: nodeA and node B. I want to configure an IP on nodeA but nodeB does not require an IP in the same same subnet. However, I want the IP to failover when nodeA goes down and I want it to be persistent when nodeA reboots.

 

ifgroup: data

Vlan Interface: data-172

 

Do I just add line below to '/etc/rc' in nodeA:

ifconfig data-172 partner 172.28.172.100 netmask 255.255.255.0 mtusize 1500 up

 

Do I also need to create the vlan on the partner 'nodeB'?

Yes, that's correct. Although the second ifconfig (nodeB) is not mandatory since there is no IP address.

 

Even though seems ok, perform takeover/giveback tests to ensure you have what you want.

hello

 

yes you do. Check below

 

nodeA

ifconfig data-172 IP172_NODE_A netmask 255.255.255.0 mtusize 1500 partner INTERFACE172_NODE_B up
