IP network information worksheet for site B

You must obtain IP addresses and other network information for the second MetroCluster site (site B) from your network administrator before you configure the system.

Site B cluster creation information

When you first create the cluster, you need the following information:

Type of information Your values
Cluster name

Example used in this guide: site_B

 
DNS domain  
DNS name servers  
Location  
Administrator password  

Site B node information

For each node in the cluster, you need a management IP address, a network mask, and a default gateway.

Node Port IP address Network mask Default gateway
Node 1

Example used in this guide: controller_B_1

       
Node 2

Not required for two-node MetroCluster configurations (one node at each site).

Example used in this guide: controller_B_2

       

Site B LIFs and ports for cluster peering

For each node in the cluster, you need the IP addresses of two intercluster LIFs, including a network mask and a default gateway. The intercluster LIFs are used to peer the clusters.

Node Port IP address of intercluster LIF Network mask Default gateway
Node 1 IC LIF 1        
Node 1 IC LIF 2        

Site B time server information

You must synchronize the time, which requires one or more NTP time servers.

Node Host name IP address Network mask Default gateway
NTP server 1        
NTP server 2        

Site B AutoSupport information

You must configure AutoSupport on each node, which requires the following information:

Type of information Your values
From email address    
Mail hosts IP addresses or names  
Transport protocol HTTP, HTTPS, or SMTP  
Proxy server  
Recipient email addresses or distribution lists Full-length messages  
Concise messages  
Partners  

Site B SP information

You must enable access to the Service Processor (SP) of each node for troubleshooting and maintenance, which requires the following network information for each node:

Node IP address Network mask Default gateway
Node 1 (controller_B_1)
