HELP! Controlling NIC - Disable without/Reboot
Posted on 2000-05-08
I'm setting up a HA web configuration, where we are using Double Take software to allow us to fail over to a stand-by server when the primary acts up. It works well when the primary fails hardware or network wise, but when a NT service or application is bad and the OS is running OK, we want to fail over with Double Take. Now if we execute Double Take fail over, it leaves us with two servers running with the same IP address. Big problem, right?
What I'm looking for is a way to script an action that will disable the NIC on the primary server, so it is unable to reply to a PING. This must be done without a reboot, very important. Can I use an SNMP command, or edit the registry to do this?
Thanks in advance,
