6500 FIPS Active/Active cluster - Duplicate DHCP addresses?

We have a weird one...

2 x 6500FIPS boxes, on OS 7.1R6, in active/active...

We have logs with users on box "A" getting an address, and then users on box "B" will ALSO be given the same address.

If we lgo into either box, we see that they are sharing the config, so why aren't they synching the DHCP data?

Gig full (auto), same subnet, no firewalls between the boxes...

Anyone had this issue?

We have a ticket open w JTAC...but forums are so full of knowleagable people, I figured I'd ask here too

Re: 6500 FIPS Active/Active cluster - Duplicate DHCP addresses?

If you have an active/active cluster, define which node will be handling which portion of the IP pool defined for all users in a Network Connection Profile by using System > Network > Network Connect with different filters in each node of the cluster.  Settings under System > Network are saved in the system.cfg and are unique to each node.  (The user.cfg is shared with all nodes of a cluster.)  An example in System > Network > Network Connect might be node1 192.168.1.160/255.255.255.254 whereas node2 has 192.168.1.162/255.255.255.254 with either a shared IP pool of 192.168.1.160-164 or each node set with its own node-specific IP pool.
