Hello,

I have an cluster running in multicast mode and the provider stopped supporting multicast - turned off during switch firmware upgrade and they don't want to enable it again.

Is there an procedure to switch from multicast to unicast without braking things and possibly no or minimum downtime?

thx

Hi,
Another solution is to create a vpn for all nodes(like tinc), and use the vpn tunnel to transport corosync multicast traffic!
