Common switch for client, server, and backplane
In this deployment, the client, server, and backplane use dedicated interfaces on the same switch to communicate with the Citrix ADC cluster.
NS0 - nodeId: 0, NSIP: 10.102.29.60
NS1 - nodeId: 1, NSIP: 10.102.29.70
NS2 - nodeId: 2, NSIP: 10.102.29.80
To deploy a cluster with a common switch for the client, server, and backplane
Create a cluster of nodes NS0, NS1, and NS2.
Log on to the first node that you want to add to the cluster and do the following:
> create cluster instance 1 > add cluster node 0 10.102.29.60 -state ACTIVE -backplane 0/1/1 > enable cluster instance 1 > add ns ip 10.102.29.61 255.255.255.255 -type CLIP > save ns config > reboot -warm
Log on to the cluster IP address and do the following:
> add cluster node 1 10.102.29.70 -state ACTIVE -backplane 1/1/1 > add cluster node 2 10.102.29.80 -state ACTIVE -backplane 2/1/1
Log on to the nodes 10.102.29.70 and 10.102.29.80 to join the nodes to the cluster.
> join cluster -clip 10.102.29.61 -password nsroot > save ns config > reboot -warm
As seen in the above commands the interfaces 0/1/1, 1/1/1, and 2/1/1 are configured as the backplane interfaces of the three cluster nodes.
On the cluster IP address, create VLANs for the backplane, client, and server interfaces.
//For the backplane interfaces
> add vlan 10 > bind vlan 10 0/1/1 1/1/1 2/1/1
//For the client-side interfaces
> add vlan 20 > bind vlan 20 0/1/2 1/1/2 2/1/2
//For the server-side interfaces
> add vlan 30 > bind vlan 30 0/1/3 1/1/3 2/1/3
On the switch, create VLANs for the interfaces corresponding to the backplane interfaces and the client and server interfaces. The following sample configurations are provided for the Cisco® Nexus 7000 C7010 Release 5.2(1) switch. Similar configurations must be performed on other switches.</span>
