FieldFunction
Node Settings

Node ID

Displays the node ID.

Cluster ID

Displays the cluster ID configured for the node.

Host Name

Displays the name of the node.

Displays the name of the backup router’s IP address used while booting.

Management Interface

Displays the management interface of that node.

IP Address

Displays the management IP address of that node.

Status

Displays the state of the redundancy group.

  • Primary—Redundancy group is active.

HA Cluster Settings > Interfaces

Name

Displays the physical interface name.

Member Interfaces/IP Address

Displays the member interface name or IP address configured for that interface.

Redundancy Group

Displays the redundancy group.

HA Cluster Settings > Redundancy Group

Group

Displays the redundancy group identification number.

Preempt

Displays the selected preempt option.

  • True — Mastership can be preempted based on priority.
  • False — Change in priority will not preempt the mastership.

Gratuitous ARP Count

Displays the number of gratuitous ARP requests that a newly elected primary device in a chassis cluster sends out to announce its presence to the other network devices.

Node Priority

Displays the assigned priority for the redundancy group on that node. The eligible node with the highest priority is elected as primary for the redundant group.

IP

Specifies the destination IP address.

Enter the destination IP address.

Add

Adds the destination address.

Click Add to add the destination address.

Delete

Deletes the destination address.

Note: Allows you to add and edit two interfaces fore each fabric link.

Select one of the options available.

IP

Specifies the interface IP address

Enter the interface IP address.

Add

Adds the interface.

Click Add to add the interface.

Delete

Deletes the interface.

Click Delete to delete the interface.

Table 106: Add HA Cluster Settings Details

FieldFunctionAction
Fabric Link > Fabric Link 0 (fab0)

Interface

Specifies fabric link 0.

Enter the interface IP fabric link 0.

Add

Adds fabric interface 0.

Click Add to add fabric interface 0.

Delete

Deletes fabric interface 0.

Click Delete to delete fabric interface 0.

Fabric Link > Fabric Link 1 (fab1)

Interface

Specifies fabric link 1.

Enter the interface IP for fabric link 1.

Add

Adds fabric interface 1.

Click Add to add fabric interface 1.

Delete

Deletes fabric interface 1.

Click Add to add redundant Ethernet IP address.

Delete

Deletes redundant Ethernet IP address.

Click Delete to delete the redundant Ethernet IP address.

Add Redundancy Group

Redundancy Group

Specifies the redundancy group name.

Enter the redundancy group name.

Allow preemption of primaryship

Allows a node with a better priority to initiate a failover for a redundancy group.

By default, this feature is disabled. When disabled, a node with a better priority does not initiate a redundancy group failover (unless some other factor, such as faulty network connectivity identified for monitored interfaces causes a failover).

Gratuitous ARP Count

Specifies the number of gratuitous Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) requests that a newly elected master sends out on the active redundant Ethernet interface child links to notify network devices of a change in mastership on the redundant Ethernet interface links.

Specify a value between 1 and 16.

The default value is 4.

node0 priority

Specifies the priority value of node0 for a redundancy group.

Enter the node priority number as 0.

node1 priority

Specifies the priority value of node1 for a redundancy group.

Select the node priority number as 1.

Select the interface from the list.

Weight

Specifies the weight for the interface to be monitored.

Enter a value between 1 and 125.

Add

Adds interfaces to be monitored by the redundancy group and their respective weights.

Click Add to add the interface and the weight to be monitored.

Delete

Deletes interfaces to be monitored by the redundancy group and their respective weights.

Select the interface from the list configured and click Delete .
