I have pulled some new nodes into an existing cluster that utilizes LACP/LAG on the current nodes. The default configuration on the new nodes is Active/Backup. We also have new ToR switches that are not configured in a LAG. Are these the correct steps the configure Active/Active? The new nodes are only participating in the metadata ring - not hosting any VMs:To modify networking on the new nodes:Change the node to LACP enabled (ACTIVE/ACTIVE) using vs0 in the GUI – select only that ONE node to update the config on!! Put node into Maintenance Mode Login to CVM acli host.list acli host.enter_maintenance_mode host-IP-address DO I NEED TO PUT THE CVM IN MAINT MODE AS WELL?? Make changes on ToR switch – enable the 2 ports for LAG for that node ONLY Test networking Remove from Maintenance mode acli host.exit_maintenance_mode host-ip Verify resiliency returns to OK Move onto the next nodeI would love some feedback on if this is the correct order.
Hey everyone - we have 2 brand new nodes that need to be added to an existing cluster. We enabled RDMA when we ran Foundation on that cluster and now need to add 2 additional nodes. Do we run the script to choose which card to enable RDMA on before we add to the cluster? Just looking for guidance on the correct way to ensure it is enabled on the new nodes as well. Thanks!
Hey all -We removed 2 nodes from 1 cluster and want to add them to another. We disconnected from vCenter and then removed them from the cluster using PE. When they were relocated to the new location, the vlan is the same and they could keep their same IP addresses, but the new cluster could not see them. It sounds like the customer had configured Distributed switches on the old cluster. Do I need to undo some of that networking to see the hosts? Would bare metal foundation be a better option and put AHV on the nodes? That is our next route, but I still think there is a problem with the network configured in ESX even for that. Is there any documentation around undoing the vmware networking for bare metal? With factory nodes, I would have just added them to the same vlan and assigned IPs using crashcart and then the cluster should have seen them. Help!
HI Everyone! Can you map a test network in a recovery plan to both the production network and the Test network at the recovery site? Nothing in the documentation around this. Our customer has VLAN 2 at the recovery location (isolated) and this is the network that matches current VLAN 1 in production. Since it’s isolated, they also want to use it for testing. Thanks!
