Chapter 6. Networking
In this chapter we test guest relocation in a layer 2 environment, how it affects MAC
addresses and how it could affect DB2. In another test, we use SCP to copy a very large file
from one Linux on System z guest to another Linux on System z guest and then relocate the
guest to other members in the SSI cluster. We will be changing the Maximum Transmission
Unit (MTU) size on two guests to 1492 and 8992 (jumbo frame), and then run an SQL query
from guest 1 to retrieve data from DB2 on guest 2.
