Adding a Remote Node

Jan 21, 2014

When two nodes of a high availability pair reside on different subnets, each node must have a different network configuration. Therefore, to configure two independent systems to function as a high availability pair, you must specify independent network computing mode during the configuration process.

When you add a high availability node, you must disable the high availability monitor for each interface that is not connected or being used for traffic.

To add a remote node for independent network computing mode

  1. In the configuration utility, on the Configuration tab, in the navigation pane, expand System and then click High Availability.
  2. In the details pane, click the Nodes tab, and then click Add.
  3. In the High Availability Setup dialog box, in the Remote Node IP Address text box, type the NetScaler Gateway IP address of the appliance that is the remote node.

    To use an IPv6 address, click the IPv6 check box before entering the IP address.

  4. If you want to add the local node to the remote node automatically, select Configure remote system to participate in High Availability setup. If you do not select this option, you need to log on to the appliance represented by the remote node and add the node that you are currently configuring.
  5. Click to enable Turn off HA monitor on interfaces/channels that are down.
  6. Click to enable Turn on INC (Independent Network Configuration) mode on self mode.
  7. Click OK. The Nodes page displays the local and remote nodes in your high availability configuration.

To remove a remote node

  1. In the configuration utility, on the Configuration tab, in the navigation pane, expand System and then click High Availability.
  2. In the details pane, click the Nodes tab.
  3. Select the node that you want to remove, click Remove and then click Yes.
