McAfee HA ERC setup

In the past we have successfully set up erc ha by just entering mgmt ip for both devices on the console and add primary first then join secondary and change the shared ip setting but then now realized in the actual HA config
doco that I need to initially configure the mgmt ip with the shared IP address then it will float it around it during the setup?

has anyone done it in my way or.

Re: McAfee HA ERC setup


The correct way is to add one receiver to the devices in the ESM GUI and give it the shared IP. Then go to Reciever Properties > Receiver Configuration >Interface > HA Receiver. Here is where you will setup the management ips for both the primary and secondary receiver. Please make sure the wire configuration is correct before going to setup the IP's and that the ESM can reach all three IP's to start. I hope this answers your questions.

Thank You

Re: McAfee HA ERC setup

can i setup mgmt ip and share ip in different vlan during initial ha setup

Re: McAfee HA ERC setup

During the initial setup the ESM must be able to reach the Shared IP and the Management IP for the primary receiver. After it is setup then you may change the IP of the shared IP.
