Cluster Mode Networking

pravinp

Hi,

In case we have a single switch where in 2 nodes are connected as HA for Cluseter. The switch is configued as L2 VLAN, the cluster ports are configured as access prots for that vlan.

- What is the underlining protocol used by netapp during cluster join.

I want to undestand if there is any Broadcast during this join ?

If not does the simulator also users the same concepts ?

Hi pravinp,

 

Did you ever get your question answered?

 

I'm setting up a lab and due to load balancing and need for non disruptive upgrade possibilities for our vmware-environment we need to pass the cluster network through our physical switches. Thus I need to create a L2-net with the correct config.
