How can I create a separate LAN specifically for cluster replication traffic?
This is fairly simple from a Domino perspective:
- First, set up the LAN. Usually, a simple switch will suffice if there are no routing issues to overcome.
- Put the cluster servers on the LAN via a second network card.
- Then add a new port to the Domino server's server documents. Many people call it "CLUSTER."
- Add the appropriate IP address and named network. Do not make it the same DNN as the regular TCP/IP port.
- Now add a few notes.ini variables. You need to set up the variables for the TCP/IP addresses (CLUSTER_TCPIPAddress=0,192.168.1.25:1352 and OtherPortName_TCPIPAddress=0,10.0.0.25:1352). That tells the Domino server which port is listening on which IP.
- Add the new CLUSTER port as well, with a "CLUSTER=TCP,0,15,0" in the ports area of the notes.ini.
- Then add the CLUSTER port to the enabled ports line of the notes.ini.
- Finally, set the variable "Server_Cluster_Default_Port=CLUSTER."
That should get you going on a private LAN, or another port on your public LAN for that matter.
