Is it possible to use more multiple pairs of ServerIrons in the same broadcast domain using hot-standby?

Is it possible to use more multiple pairs of ServerIrons in the same broadcast domain using hot-standby? I do have one pair already but I might have to add another one. Any problems doing so?

Re: Is it possible to use more multiple pairs of ServerIrons in the same broadcast domain using hot-standby?

It is possible to use multiple pairs of ServerIrons in the same broadcast domain running hot-standby in between the ServerIrons. You do have to use a different "backup-group" ID for each pair. Enter the same ID on each ServerIron of a pair via

(config)#server backup-group <id>

The ID is a value in between 0 and 7. The default value is 0.

You are therefore able to put up to 8 pairs of ServerIrons in the same broadcast domain using the IDs 0 to 7.
