  • Problem in configuring MSCS heartbeat network ?

    Hi People,

    I am having a serious problem with my MSCS cluster that I have just built, it always failed in the error 1129 during network validation process of the heart beat network (

    in each ESXi servers, I have created:
    vSwitch0 - Administration console, VMotion and HA
    vSwitch1 - VLAN with access to the entire LAN and internet
    vSwitch2 - no uplinks just dedicated network label for the MSCS heart beat network (in which the two VMs is in this VMnetwork label)

    I assign class A address in the heartbeat network according to Microsoft article into and no gateway, disabled NETBIOS, not registering it in the DNS and binding order#2

    This is the screenshot of the networking between the two nodes:

    I have disabled the IPv6 using
    c:\>reg add hklm\system\currentcontrolset\services\tcpip6\para meters /v DisabledComponents /t REG_DWORD /d 255
    However it is still the same problem even after restarting both node, I also noticed something peculiar in the Failover Cluster network, why one got APIPA while the other doesn't ?

    is there something wrong with my configuration or I am missing something here ?
