Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2
To configure multicast heartbeat
Open Routing and Remote Access.
In the console tree, click General.
Routing and Remote Access/server name/IP Routing/General
- Routing and Remote Access/server name/IP Routing/General
In the details pane, right-click the interface on which you want to configure multicast heartbeat, and then click Properties.
On the Multicast Heartbeat tab, select the Enable multicast heartbeat detection check box, and do the following:
To add a multicast heartbeat group, in Multicast heartbeat group, type the IP address of the multicast heartbeat group.
To configure a quiet time before alerting, in Quiet time before alerting (minutes), click the arrows to set a quiet time in minutes.
- To add a multicast heartbeat group, in Multicast heartbeat group, type the IP address of the multicast heartbeat group.
To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group. As a security best practice, consider using the Run As command rather than logging on with administrative credentials. If you have logged on with administrative credentials, you can also open Routing and Remote Access by clicking Start, clicking Control Panel, double-clicking Administrative Tools, and then double-clicking Routing and Remote Access. For more information, see Default local groups, Default groups, and Using Run as.
Information about functional differences
Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
