Setting up TCP/IP Services in Cluster?

» close window

The Question is:

Dear Wizard,
I have a question related to TCPIP V5.0A.
I have the need to define an IP address on an OpenVMS node and fail it over to
 another node as needed in a multi-node cluster.
Can I do that under TCPIP V5.0A? I have looked at the doc, I found the
 "ifconfig" command with the alias argument. Am I on the right path? Is there
 an example on how to add the extra IP address and remove it on the fly?
Thank you very much.

The Answer is :

  Look for "Cluster Load Balancing" in the TCP/IP Services documentation
  index, and see the section of the TCP/IP Services Management manual
  covering "Setting Up a TCP/IP Services Cluster", in the first chapter
  of the manual.
