How to configure Packet Filter in Continuity Engine HA deployment with Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) NIC Teaming
This Knowledgebase article provides information regarding configuration of Packet Filter in a Continuity Engine HA deployment having LACP NIC Teaming.
The correct deployment of Continuity Engine in a scenario where the target server NICs are teamed in a Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) mode means that Packet Filter gets installed on each individual NIC participating in the team. Thus, if LACP NIC teaming is already in place when Continuity Engine is being installed, then one must perform the following (on each CE node):
- break NIC teaming
- install Packet Filter on each individual NIC participating in LACP team
- recreate the LACP NIC teaming
