Hi - please forgive any inaccurate terminology, I'm not a Microsoft cluster person by background (more HSRP/VRRP and F5). We have a multi-subnet (multi-site for DR) cluster, with 1 node at each site. The group involved has added multiple cluster groups with separate IPs (I'll call them "cluster VIPs") - the rationale being that different services may need to fail over at different times. But at the network level, all of the cluster VIPs are sharing the same network adapter, and therefore the same MAC. That is causing routing issues from other subnets, as the switch sees multiple IPs attempting to use the same MAC.
Is this a proper design for this situation? My simple brain is saying that each cluster VIP should in fact have a separate adapter (and therefore a separate MAC) "assigned" to it on each node? If so, any pointers to how to accomplish that would be appreciated. Or, if the issue lies elsewhere, any hints or suggestions appreciated.
