How can I setup an NLB cluster across 2 blades connected via a HP 6120XG Switch? All of the guides are for Cisco and setup static ARP entries on the switch but that is not possible on the HP Switch. Any help would be apreciated

Thanks Dan

try the command ip arp-mcast-replies. This command is found on 8210/5400/3500 and 2910 series switches, so it might be included on the 6120XG switch. This command allows the ARP table to learn multicast MAC address, eliminating the need to add a static ARP entry.

NOTE: this command in only documented in the release notes so skip the guides.
