Hi Perry,

I was trying to set up domain controller and two VM's for this.I have a problem with assiging IP's for these three servers in order to create a cluster.I have just assigned Ip's as follows.


ClusterDC

IP Address : 10.10.10.1
subnet mask : 255.255.255.0
default gateway: 10.10.10.1

Node01

IP Address : 10.10.10.8
subnet mask : 255.255.255.0
default gateway: 10.10.10.1

Node02

IP Address : 10.10.10.9
subnet mask : 255.255.255.0
default gateway: 10.10.10.1

but when I tried to add Node01 to the domain it gives me a message saying cannot contatct the specified domain...
I was tring to ping the ClusterDC from Node01 but it's not receiveing any packets from clusterdc.

Could you advice me on this? What am I doing wrong here.I am not a network expert though.

I have followed VMWare network adapter settings as you mentioned in the part1 exactly

Thank you..

Hi Perry,

I was trying to set up domain controller and two VM's for this.I have a problem with assiging IP's for these three servers in order to create a cluster.I have just assigned Ip's as follows.

OK, for each VM clear the default gateway setting (blank) and move the IP address 10.10.10.1 to the DNS settings instead.

Remember to set your network bindings on the cluster nodes too once you have the extra virtual NICs installed to the VMs.

what was the domain name you used when creating the domain on the DC VM?
what operating system have you used for the Clusterdc and the cluster nodes?

Hi,
Its a great step by step tutorial.

I have setup as instructed (well almost) but when I go to SQLNode2-> iSCSI Initiator -> Target Tab, it shows all the targets but keeps showing the status "Reconnecting...". Do you know what am I doing wrong here :-(

Thanks again for this great tutorial.
