Figure 2-3. Example of Network Cabling Connection
Cabling Your Public Network
Any network adapter supported by a system running TCP/IP may be used to
connect to the public network segments. You can install additional network
adapters to support additional public network segments or to provide
redundancy in the event of a faulty primary network adapter or switch port.
Cabling Your Private Network
The private network connection to the cluster nodes is provided by a second
or subsequent network adapter that is installed in each node. This network is
used for intra-cluster communications.
Table 2-2 lists the required hardware components and connection method for
three possible private network configurations.
