Windows 2008 R2 Failover Clustering

By rujinraj ·
hi all,
I have 2 node failover cluster(windows 2008 R2) and sql failover also configured in that.
While configuring failover cluster I added only 2 networks( 1 is for cluster communication and other for public)
Network1: and 3 GW:
Network2 IP: and 2 without Gateway for cluster communication(cross cable)
Cluster IP:
Now I need to add 2 more networks for redundancy purpose and planning to give from different switch
Please let us know how I can configure the setup
1) To add two more network in failover mode
2) How to configure network IP address in other redundancy networks (with gateway or without gateway)
3) It need to switch over automatically if network1 fails
4) The MAC address of cluster IP is related to network 1, if fails how it will map with another network?
5) Can I change the Cluster IP address
6) If Domain fails will cluster run?

Please help

Very complex question

You don't mention any router here, and yet you need to do LAN-to-LAN routing.

Also, it's possible to do link redundancy at layer2, through NIC teaming,

Not sure what you mean by adding two more you mean two more network adapters?

This question is impossible to answer without knowing whether you're routing within the servers or not, what the defined networks are, what the default gateway is, or what network traffic is going to and from different subnets. It is also helpful to know where the domain controller is,
