I would like to cluster 2 SUN servers which are on different buildings. The two buildings are linked with a WAN connection over fiber.
The Clustering Software on the Servers (Sun CLuster 3.2) has a requirement that the two nodes/servers need to be in the same subnet for the cluster to work. My question is; how can i span a VLAN/Subnet across the two buildings over a Layer 3 connection (WAN link)?
My options are as follows:
1) Use VPN/Tunneling btwn the buildings
- How is this done??
2) Use the Sun Cluster Geocluster software
- Would like to avoid this for now
3) Please suggest another option.
