Find the Multicast MAC Addresses for an Active/Active Cluster

To configure your switch to support the FireCluster multicast MAC addresses, you might need to know the multicast MAC addresses the cluster uses for each interface. There are two ways to find the MAC addresses assigned to the interfaces.

Find the MAC Addresses in Policy Manager

  1. Open Policy Manager for the active/active FireCluster.
  2. Select FireCluster > Configure.
    The FireCluster Configuration dialog box appears.
  3. In the Interface Settings section, find the multicast MAC address for each interface.

To copy a multicast MAC address from the FireCluster configuration to your switch or router configuration:

  1. In the Multicast MAC column, double-click the MAC address.
    The MAC address appears highlighted.
  2. Click and drag to highlight the MAC address.
  3. Press Ctrl+C on your keyboard to copy it to the clipboard
  4. Paste the MAC address in your switch or router configuration.
    For more information, see Switch and Router Requirements for an Active/Active FireCluster.

Find the MAC Address in Firebox System Manager

You can also find the multicast MAC addresses in Firebox System Manager.

  1. Open Firebox System Manager.
  2. Select the Front Panel tab.
