Field

Function

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.

Backup Router

Displays the IP address used while booting.

Management Interface

Displays the management interface of the node.

IP Address

Displays the management IP address of the node.

Status

Displays the state of the redundancy group.

  • Primary–Redundancy group is active.
  • Secondary–Redundancy group is passive.
HA Cluster Settings>Interfaces

Name

Displays the physical interface name.

Member Interfaces/IP Address

Displays the member interface name or IP address configured for an 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–Mastership cannot be preempt based on priority.

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.

Field FunctionAction
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.

Delete

Deletes fabric interface 0.

Click Delete.

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.

Delete

Click Delete.

Redundant Ethernet

Interface

Specifies a logical interface consisting of two physical Ethernet interfaces, one on each chassis.

Enter the logical interface.

IP

Specifies redundant Ethernet IP address.

Enter redundant Ethernet IP address.

Redundancy Group

Specifies redundancy group ID number in the chassis cluster.

Select one of the redundancy group from the list.

Add

Adds redundant Ethernet IP address.

Click Add.

Click Delete.

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.

Note: 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 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.

The range is through 1 to 16. The default is 4.

Enter a value.

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.

Interface Monitor

Interface

Specifies the number of redundant Ethernet interfaces to be created for the cluster.

Select the interface from the list.

Weight

Specifies the weight for the interface to be monitored. The ranges is from 1 through 125.

Enter a value.

Add

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

Click Add.

Delete

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

Select the interface from the configured list and click Delete.

IP Monitoring

Weight

Specifies the global threshold for IP monitoring. The range is from 0 through 255.

Enter a value.

Threshold

Specifies the global threshold for IP monitoring. The range is from 0 through 255.

Enter a value.

Retry Count

Specifies the number of retries needed to declare reachability failure. The range is from 5 through 15.

Enter a value.

Retry Interval

Specifies the time interval in seconds between retries. The range is from 1 through 30.

Enter a value.
