MS HPC - Failover cluster - Loop back configuration RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi,

    I'm planning to setup MS HPC with failover head node in topology 2 configuration.  I have concern about Private Network connection between Head node clusters and compute node.

    Typically, with 2 Node cluster, the Private Network serve as Heatbeat between 2 node only and loopback cables has been connected between 2 nodes. I would like to understand in this network setup, how i can connect my compute node Private Network connection to the Head Node Private Network. Please advise how the real network connection between Head node / Compute with respect to Private Network Setup.

    Let us assume the configuration,

    two head nodes (in failover) - HN1 and HN2  ( Enterprise and Private Network)                                                                                              two compute nodes -  CN1 and CN2 (Enterprise and Private Network)

    How to connect CN1 and CN2 Private Network connections to HN1 and HN2 Cluster Private Networks ( Heart beat).. Please advise. ( something VLAN involved)???

    Best Regards,
