6500

Hi,

I have a few Windows Servers running MS NLB clustering, how do i configure the virtual IP and the mac address used by the cluster on the Cat 6500? The core is running MLS, will that disable the MLS?

cheers!

Re: 6500

If you can assign a multicast mac address to the virtual IP, what you can do is

a) Configure a static ARP entry on the default router. Example: "arp 1.1.1.1 0100.4444.5555"

If you assign a multicast MAC address to a unicast IP, you must configure a static ARP entry for it on the router.

b) Then configure a static multicast MAC entry on the switch. Example " set cam permanent 01-00-44-44-55-55 3/1,3/4,3/6"

Doing this will not disable MLS. Actually i'm not even sure its even possible to disable mls no matter what you end up doing.
