The setup guide states that "No more than 2 cluster nodes can be booted simultaneously", but I wanted to simulate a 4-node cluster & wondered whether this was possible - perhaps with a workaround of some sort??
You should be able to run 2 clusters on the same subnet, assuming you use different IPs for node/cluster mgmt, and a differeent cluster name. During cluster join, be careful to join the correct cluster.
If you want to put the 2nd on a different subnet, its going to be challenging in player. If the VMNET exists, your host pc will have an IP on that VM net and you can get the network/subnet/gateway addersses from that interface on the host pc.
FYI - Re my previous question - the Simulator DOES allow you to add a 3rd/4th node etc. into the cluster by changing the SYSID & S/N - However - the License codes you are given only work with the two SYSIDs you are given in the instructions - therefore you can't license anything on the additional nodes - so they will be of limited use tbh!
Anyway, at least we have proved a point that it 'can' be done.... 🙂
