Cluster SCS Preferred Path Selection?

» close window

The Question is:

We are moving from Memory Channel to Gigabit as a Cluster Interconnect. We are
 having trouble finding any documentation on configuring a cluster to Gigabit
 Interconnect. When we remove the MC and change to LAN it defaults to our
 standard Ethernet cards. W
e are using Fibre Channel for disk I/O. Is there an updated procedure for this?

The Answer is :

  Assuming supported controllers and ECOs, GbE controllers function
  as a cluster interconnect without any particular configuration
  requirements -- once the LAN is enabled, SCS will probe and use
  all available LAN connections.
  For more specific control over SCS, please see the SCACP mechanisms
  and the associated documention.  On older releases, see topics
  such as (8650), (5694) and (7640) -- for path selection -- and
  see (1778), (2758), (4001), (4458), (4819), (6067), and (8650).
  In most cases, the default behaviour is often the most appropriate.
