Windows Cluster across 2 C7000 Chassis using Virtual Connect

What is the best practice to create a 2 node windows cluster where the blades resided in 2 different chassis using virtual connect. How does the heartbeat work?

Hi,

both C7000 should provide identical VLANs. (Don't forget to enable SmartLink!)

So, HB-NICs are is in the same subnet and can talk to each other.

Are both C7000 in the same location or is WAN between? If so, take care about latency requirements!
