To create a cluster from Command Center, under Configure Cluster
, set up a cluster backplane, add the first node to the cluster from the list of discovered NetScaler devices in Command Center, and then assign a cluster IP address. After you have created the cluster, you can add more nodes to the cluster.
- To configure a NetScaler Cluster
- On the
Citrix Network tab, in the left pane, expand Device Inventory, and then click Devices.
- In the right pane, select the device for which you want to configure a cluster, and then from the Action drop-down list click Configure Cluster.
- Under Configure Cluster, provide the following parameters.
. The IP address to assign as Cluster
Cluster ID .
An identification number that distinguishes
the cluster from other clusters. Minimum value: 1. Maximum value: 16.
An identification number that distinguishes the node from other nodes in the cluster. Each node in the cluster must have a different node ID. Minimum
value: 0. Maximum value: 31.
The IP address of the NetScaler device you
intend to add as cluster node.
The configured state of the cluster node.
Possible values: ACTIVE, PASSIVE, SPARE. Default:
Backplane interface of the node. For example,
if node 0 uses interface 1/1, the value of this parameter is 0/1/1.
If node Id is 1, backplane will be 1/1/1. It is a combination of
node id/interface/port number.
- Click Create. You have created a single-node cluster. After Command Center discovers the new cluster, you can add additional nodes.
