How do I add a network connection to an existing Win2K3 cluster?

I have a Windows 2003 cluster already built. For some reason, the secondary
NIC for the private (heartbeat) network connection did not get added to the
cluster. I am trying to figure out how to add it in. It is not a cluster
resource, so I cannot add it that way. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I suppose, I need to figure out how to enable a network connection for
cluster use.

Thank you,

Racer-D

Are you using a cross-over cable? http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q242430/

Network cards just show up in the Cluster Administrator. They have to need
to configure what kind of access. Do you see the NIC in Cluster
Administrator?

Cheers,

need help

I have a cluster with 6 network connections on each nodes
2 network connections are used for the heartbeat.
The problem is that in cluster administrator I can only see 1 on the 4 others network cards....
Any idea how to add them in the cluster administrator ?

Thanks
Miles

Do you have multiple IP addresses on your NICs? Please don't tell me you're
using 2 heartbeat NICs per node and have NIC Teaming configured...this is
not a supported configuration.
