I have a situation that I am not 100% sure how to resolve. I have a Windows host, Host A, that has a 1 gig connection to the core and is part of a Windows cluster. I have another host, Host B, that has a 10gig connection to the core. Host B is essentially a NAS and a target for disk-2-disk backup. Host A is a SQL Active/Passive cluster. The problem I have is when Host A runs its backup dumping to Host B it saturates Host A's link and causes the cluster to failover becuase SQL/Windows Clustering thinks it has lost network connectivity. I have enabled flow control on both ports and ensured it is enabled on both interfaces or both hosts. The only solution I can come up with is to setup some type of rate limiting. Does anyone have any other thoughts?
Thanks in advance!
