Hi guys,

I want to know, if we can build a cluster of two smartzones directly connected to the patch panels and without using a switch.

No... you can't directly connect two SZ-100's Eth ports to talk to each other for example,
you need a def-gw/router.

Actually, it worked once i separated the CP and DP, and the two controllers are directly connected on a control port on the same subnet.

This said, i was wondering if i can add more ports to the Control plane port group?

Thank you for your reactivity.
