Re: GBE2 Switch with Windows clustering

basically all you would need to do is create a new vlan, and add the 2 ports where the Heartbeat NICs connect.

For example, I will use LAC 4 on my 2 cluster nodes as my heartbeat NIC. My cluster nodes are BL20pg3 servers in slot 4 and 7. LAC 4 terminates on switch B so I will create VLAN 111 and add ports 8 and 14 to this VLAN and nothing else.

apply and save

Now if your heartbeat NICs terminate to different switches, the VLAN you create will need to be extended at least to every switch in the path between the 2 heartbeat NICs.

HI,

Thanks for the reply.

we forget the password for the GBE2 Interconnecting switch. Is there any way to login to the GBE2 Interconnecting switch by using any default password??

Thanks

Hi,

the GBE2 switch can be accessed via telnet using 'admin' as the login and no password is needed.
