Duplicate cluster ID numbers
VCS version (4.0 to 5.1)
OS version AIX, Solaris, Linux
I have a question about Cluster ID numbers and the need for them to be unique. For the most part we have just assigned cluster ID numbers on pretty much of an add-hoc basis, with no one keeping track fo the ID #'s. This has worked for since many of our clusters use crossover cables or private vlans that were unique to each cluster.
However, we are now starting to use blade servers in HP enclosures where the pVlan is shared between multiple clusters. We have found a problem where LLT will not start when the smae ID number is used on multiple clusters.
Now it does say Unique Cluster ID number during the VCS install/configuration. However, we have gotten away with using duplicate ID's in the past.
What I was hoping for want an explanation of how LLT works WRT to cluster ID's and pVlans.
So can anyone help me out here?
Thanks in Advance,
