MNS and MPLS networking

    We want to deploy a MNS cluster, but I have been told by our networking team
    that the requirement of all cluster nodes being on the same subnet is not
    possible with an MPLS WAN. I don't know much about how MPLS works, so I can't
    really argue. I have 2 questions:

    1) Are there any workarounds for the requirement of all cluster nodes being
    on the same subnet.
    2) Are there other clustering technologies that would work in if 1) cannot
    be met (ie VCS with VVR, GeoCluster, etc).

    Thanks

  3. 1) There are no workaround to make MSCS work on different subnets. You would
    need to implement VLANs to make your network appear as a single subnet
    between cluster nodes.

    2) Yes, there are other clustering technologies that would work.
