pn_cluster - CLI command to create/delete a cluster.

New in version 2.2.

Synopsis

  • Execute cluster-create or cluster-delete command.
  • A cluster allows two switches to cooperate in high-availability (HA) deployments. The nodes that form the cluster must be members of the same fabric. Clusters are typically used in conjunction with a virtual link aggregation group (VLAG) that allows links physically connected to two separate switches appear as a single trunk to a third device. The third device can be a switch,server, or any Ethernet device.
