CMS and IP address RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running Exchange 2007 SP2 on Windows 2008 SP2 using SCC active/passive.

    Node1: 192.168.1.1.

    Node2: 192.168.1.2

    CMS: 192.168.1.3

    Can anyone tell me what the CMS IP address is associated with? I know Node1 IP is associated with Node1 NIC, and Node2 IP with Node2 NIC, but what about the CMS? What is that IP actually registered against, apart from the CMS 'A' record?

  • It's not associated with any of those you must assign the CMS another unique static IP.

    IP NODEA

    IP NODEB

    IP Windows Cluster

    IP CMS (formerly known as EVS in 2003)

    "Each node requires one static IP address for each network adapter that is used for the cluster public network. Additionally, static IP addresses are required for the failover cluster and for the CMS so that they can be accessed by clients and administrators. You must use static IP addresses that are not on the same subnet or network as one of the private networks."

  • Hi,

    CMS IP is the IP which you see if ping CMS name. Like cms mailbox server name is mail1 then ping it and verify IP address.

    Please correct me if i understand your question correctly.
