1.5. Cluster Configuration Considerations
When configuring a Red Hat High Availability Add-On cluster, you must take the following considerations into account:
- Red Hat does not support cluster deployments greater than 32 nodes for RHEL 7.7 (and later). It is possible, however, to scale beyond that limit with remote nodes running the
pacemaker_remoteservice. For information on the
pacemaker_remoteservice, see Section 9.4, “The pacemaker_remote Service”.
- The use of Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) for obtaining an IP address on a network interface that is utilized by the
corosyncdaemons is not supported. The DHCP client can periodically remove and re-add an IP address to its assigned interface during address renewal. This will result in
corosyncdetecting a connection failure, which will result in fencing activity from any other nodes in the cluster using
corosyncfor heartbeat connectivity.
