I'm planning some overdue architectural updates to our SZ124 deployment
1-Migrating our current only SZ124 from 1G to 10G
- Requires new Managment IP
- Would like to update the hostname (sz01.locationA.mycompany.com)
2-Deployment of a new SZ124 with 10G uplink for failover
- Will be added to the same cluster as current SZ
- Will be hosted at a second location for geo-redundancy (sz01.locationB.mycompany.com)
My concern is, without having much experience with clustering, the hostnames and a possibility of conflict. As far as I can tell it looks like only the hostname(first word before .) is considered as part of the node name and not the full domain.
If I went with our current deployement standards, I'd end up with two sz01 hostnames. Should I be concerned about this? Or should I try deploying unique hostnames like sz01a.locationA and sz01b.locationB...
also wondering if there's a way to rename a cluster? It was deployed before my time using cisco "wlc" as the convention that kinda irks me ;)
