How to use local disk on all nodes to configue VCS+VVR+GCO configuration

Hi all:
I need a solution, please help, thank you.
Environment:
Main site windows 2008 R2 + DR site Windows 2008 R2
SFHA6.0

Requirements:
Between the two sites do data replication using VVR
But our IT system does not have a disk array, we need to use the PC server's local disk storage space do VCS application resource group.
But VCS resource group does not support the server's local disk, VCS Configuration Wizard only supports Cluster disk group.

What mode of operation can be achieved using PC Server local disk and DR VVR do it?

To use internal disk for VVR

To use internal disk for VVR then:

  1. You need a a seperate disk from the O/S disk - i.e you must create a diskgroup which does not contain the O/S. Diskgroups consist of disks, not partitions so you can not use spare space on a disk that contains the O/S drive.  If you have internal RAID controllers so you have more than 1 physical disk, but this presents one LUN to the O/S, then you would need to change the RAID configuration to provide at least 2 LUNs - one for O/S and one to create a diskgroup for VVR
     
  2. Your internal disks/LUN must support SCSI 2 or SCSI 3 reservations
     
  3. You need use "vxclus UseSystemBus ON” which will allow you to create a cluster diskgroup on the same controller as the O/S disk.

Hi.   Can you please more

Hi.

 

Can you please more details about your environment, what server and controller you have

 

It is going to be a single node cluster or multiples nodes?
