TitleMultiple ping response from Microsoft NLB IP using VSP switches
Symptoms
Multiple ping response from Microsoft NLB IP using VSP switches
Environment
VSP
Cause

This is normal behavior. All nodes in an Microsoft NLB cluster respond to pings. The ping command in Windows masks the duplicate replies so you only notice this if pinging from a non-windows box.

Resolution
There is a registry key that can change this - more details at this link
