Configuring VIP versus servers for MTS

We have Pulse configured and working for a single server within a AIX cluster; however, looking for examples to utilize a VIP instead of server IP address so that switching within the cluster works automatically.  Any feedback appreciated.

Re: Configuring VIP versus servers for MTS

Hi There,

 

I imagine your deployment is like the diagram in this help article, espec, Prognosis is installed on the MTS unix box:

https://help.prognosis.com/prognosis/117/deploying-prognosis-for-aci-mts-28089294.html

 

So it is the prognosis managing node - to - prognosis monitoring node connection that would be affected by a VIP type network setup. This Online Help article describes the relevant configuration.

https://help.prognosis.com/prognosis/117/configure-the-prognosis-network-connections-28091082.html

 

This Prognosis-to-Prognosis is a pretty standard TCP connection, default port 1960, that should be able to connect between network segments/subnets, with NAT or port forwarding etc so it should just be a matter of specifying the VIP address into the managing node NETWORK config:

MANAGED-NODES (<VIP Address Of MTS Host Here>:<port 1960 usually>)
