Configuring a Chassis Cluster and Redundancy Groups—Quick Configuration

You can use J-Web Quick Configuration to quickly configure the chassis cluster and redundancy groups. See Figure .

Before you can use the J-Web Quick Configuration to configure the chassis cluster parameters, you must perform the following tasks:

To configure chassis cluster with Quick Configuration:

  1. Select Configuration>Quick Configuration>Chassis Cluster.

  2. Fill in the parameter settings as described in Table 141.
  3. Click one of the following buttons:

Table 141: Chassis Cluster Quick Configuration Summary



Your Action

Redundant Ether-interface Count

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

Specify a value between 1 and 128.

Heartbeat Interval

Specifies how often heartbeats are sent out to the other nodes in the cluster and is expressed in milliseconds.

The default heartbeat interval is 1000 ms.

Specify a value between 1000 and 1200 milliseconds.

Heartbeat Threshold

Specifies the number of consecutive missed heartbeats that indicate a cluster failure.

The default number is 3.

Specify a value from 3 to 8.

Initial Hold

Specifies the time to wait during bootup before determining the node state in the chassis cluster.

Specify a value between 1 and 32 seconds.


Specifies the nodes to be used for the chassis cluster.

Specify a node by selecting a node from the list, and click Add.

To delete a node, select the node you want to delete, and click Delete.

Group Number

Displays the selected redundancy group information.

  • To modify information for a redundancy group, select the corresponding group number. Specify a value between 1 and 255.
  • To create a new redundancy group:
    • Assign a group ID to the redundancy group. Specify a value between 1 and 255.
    • Configure the redundancy group with information described in the rest of this table.

Select a group number from the list of configured redundancy groups.

Gratuitous ARP Count

For a redundancy group, 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 notifying network devices of a change in mastership on the redundant Ethernet interface links.

The default value is 4.

Specify a value between 1 and 16.


For a redundancy group, allows a node with a better priority to initiate a failover. 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.).

Select the check box.


For a redundancy group, specifies the priority value of each node. The redundancy group becomes primary on the node with the best (higher) priority.

By default, this feature is disabled.

Select a node and a priority number, and click Add. The value is a number between 1 and 225.


For a redundancy group, specifies the interfaces to be monitored by the redundancy group and their respective weights.

Select the interface from the list and enter its weight.
