Hello,

I have a situation that I am not 100% sure how to resolve.  I have a Windows host, Host A, that has a 1 gig connection to the core and is part of a Windows cluster.  I have another host, Host B,  that has a 10gig connection to the core.  Host B is essentially a NAS and a target for disk-2-disk backup. Host A is a SQL Active/Passive cluster.  The problem I have is when Host A runs its backup dumping to Host B it saturates Host A's link and causes the cluster to failover becuase SQL/Windows Clustering thinks it has lost network connectivity.  I have enabled flow control on both ports and ensured it is enabled on both interfaces or both hosts.  The only solution I can come up with is to setup some type of rate limiting.  Does anyone have any other thoughts?

Thanks in advance!
