  • VLAN - duplicate IP address

    I have 2 servers connected to the same switch.
    The servers Heart beat IP is the same eg.
    Therefore there is a duplicate IP address..
    If I create 2 VLANs and contain the 2 IPs.
    Can the IP contain within the same VLAN and stop broadcasting duplicate IP Address?

    Please advise.

    It sounds like you're using some kind of load balancing on these servers. Something isn't configured right. Load balancing shouldn't cause a duplicate ip address problem. What type of load balancing are you using and how do you have it configured?

      I think the answer to your question is, essentially, no.

      Even if you put configure separate vlans, it's still got to know how to route..

      and it'll just be confusing..
