My question is in the subject
As far I as know, up to 4. I just don't know if you can split on two (or more) MAGs or must be in the same.
I already have 2 MAG6611 with 2 SM360 in each one they are mounted in one cluster
so i have 4 SM360 in one Cluster
but i receive 4 new SM360 , i plug them in the 2 MAG6611 and i don't know if i could add them in my existing cluster or if i must create a new cluster
You can add to an existing A/A cluster, but you must add the node to the cluster setting first, then attempt to join it with the cluster password.
Just in case, I should note that A/P can no more than 2 nodes.
So we can have clusters with more than 4 nodes?
It is the same for SM-160?
Up to 4 nodes in a A/A. Up to 2 nodes in a A/P.
Device must be the same hardware and running the same version of software. If there is a difference in software, it will require to upgrade the software when its joins the cluster.
Patrick has 8 (4 old + 4 new) sm-360... he can build a cluster with 8 sm-360? In a previous post you say it was just add them to the cluster.
The 4 limitation is just for the sm-160?
I am asking this, because I need to replace my old SA, and for me is more importante to have throughput than cpu power, and I prefer to have a cluster of 4 sm-160 than a cluster of 2 sm-360 (in order to have 3000 users).
Can you enlighten me?
All this sutff in A/A and not in A/P
Patrick is stating 4 nodes in one cluster. MAG-360 is the blades (2 blades) in 2 MAG 6611 chassis.
Back to the basics...
Can I have a 4 node cluster with sm-160?
Sorry, if I missed this, but if we are talking specifically about SM-160, it can only be 2. If we are talking about SM-360, it can be 4. Here is a KB which states what devices support either 2 or 4 and what is the max number of users for each scenario.
