Cluster and node states

For a cluster to be functional, a majority of the nodes (n/2 + 1) must be operationally active (operational state is ACTIVE). Check table below.

Important

From NetScaler release 10.5, you can configure the cluster to be functional even when the majority criteria is not satisfied. This configuration must be performed when creating a cluster.

For more information on states of a cluster node, refer to States of a cluster node.
