You must cable the new controller module to the cluster peering network so that it has connectivity with the cluster on the partner site.

About this task

At least two ports on each controller module should be used for cluster peering.

The recommended minimum bandwidth for the ports and network connectivity is 1 GbE.

  1. Identify and cable at least two ports for cluster peering and verify they have network connectivity with the partner cluster.
