    MEG 7.0.2 Cluster

    Evandro Rodrigues

      Hi All! Hope you´re fine.

       

      I need some help: I need to configure a cluster environment for MEG 7.0.2 (7.0 Patch 2), being Cluster Master / Cluster Failover.

      Does anyone have a step-by-step to configure this environment?

      I did some configuration, but seems it doesnt work.

      Here are the steps i did:

       

      In the Cluster Master:

      - System / System Administration / Cluster Management;

      - Selected "Cluster Master";

      - In "Network Interfaces Wizard", selected "Explicit Proxy", set an IP Address to physical (NIC 1) and another one Virtual IP (NIC 1);

      - NIC 2, disabled;

      - Address to use for load balancing = The same IP Address to physical NIC 1 (is the only choice that i had);

      - Cluster ID = 0

      - Enable Scanning on this Appliance = Enable;

      - Advanced Scanning device settings = No MAC address specified

      - Apply Configuration.

       

      In The Cluster Failover:

      - System / System Administartion / Cluster Management;

      - Selected "Cluster Failover";

      - In "Network Interfaces Wizard", selected "Explicit Proxy", set an IP Address to physical (NIC 1) and another one Virtual IP (NIC 1 / The same Virtual IP for Cluster Master);

      - NIC 2, disabeld;

      - Address to use for load balancing = The same IP Address to physical NIC 1 (is the only choice that i had);

      - Cluster ID = 0;

      - Enable Scanning on this Appliance = Enable;

      - Advanced Scanning device settings = No MAC Address specified;

      - Apply Configuration.

       

      After configuring all these options, the failover says "Synchronizing" and never stops.

      Where is the point?

       

      And also, i have some doubts:

      - I understood the the "Cluster ID" must be the same because the appliances will be in the same cluster. Is that correct?

      - All messages must be delivered to the Virtual IP, instead to the physical one (Firewall Rule). Is that correct?

       

      Thanks a lot,

      Evandro Rodrigues.
