Novell ICS TCP/IP Addressing Question

By jroberts ·
We're purchasing 2 IBM caching servers powered by Novell ICS. We're planning on clustering these 2 servers and we're wondering how the TCP/IP addressing will look. Will each server have its own IP address? Will the cluster itself have a single IPaddress? We're hoping that the cluster will have an IP address so that our ISP will be able to appropriately establish our DNS zone file to direct traffic to the cluster entity. Therefore, we'll be able to load balance the ICS devices.

Thoughts?

If the servers are, indeed, clustered they will have one virtual IP address to which the requests will be directed. The Novell ICS product does support load balancing and failover through its support for clustering.

You should see a cluster as a small independant IP network. Every separate clustered disk for example has its own IP address, in a range completely separated from the IP addresses of the servers.
