Running Windows 2008 Server with Exchange 2007 on it.

Two nodes: CCR1 and CCR2. The replication is CCR.

I notice if I do ipconfig/all, there is a network connection named: "Microsoft Failover Cluster Virtual Adapter". The IP address is

Since this is CCR, there is no SAN or 'proper' clustering in the way of SCC.

Does anyone know what this adaptor does, where it's set, how I can change the IP address etc? If I go to Network Connections > Manage Network connections, I can't actually see this in there!
