The Question is:
We are moving from Memory Channel to Gigabit as a Cluster Interconnect. We are
having trouble finding any documentation on configuring a cluster to Gigabit
Interconnect. When we remove the MC and change to LAN it defaults to our
standard Ethernet cards. W
e are using Fibre Channel for disk I/O. Is there an updated procedure for this?
The Answer is :
Assuming supported controllers and ECOs, GbE controllers function
as a cluster interconnect without any particular configuration
requirements -- once the LAN is enabled, SCS will probe and use
all available LAN connections.
For more specific control over SCS, please see the SCACP mechanisms
and the associated documention. On older releases, see topics
such as (8650), (5694) and (7640) -- for path selection -- and
see (1778), (2758), (4001), (4458), (4819), (6067), and (8650).
In most cases, the default behaviour is often the most appropriate.
