Hi Rahul,

Here is a link to the SFW/SFW-HA 6.1 guides.  There are serveral solutions guides that would be able to help you out depending on your exact configuration.

These 2 are specific to SFW and Windows failover cluster:

Hi Rahul,

Coordiator disk group and fencing are not used by the Windows product.  There are no manual ways to set these up for Windows.

We do have CVM (Clustered Volume Manager) on Windows Failover Clusters.  This is documented in the InfoScale 7.0 Administrator's Guide in chapter 14.  A link to the doc is at: http://origin-download.veritas.com/resources/content/live/DOCUMENTATION/8000/DOC8769/en_US/sf_admin_70_win.pdf

For CVM, resources are automatically created in the cluster when volumes are created on a CVM enabled diskgroup.  There are no manual steps to create cluster resources for this type of diskgroup/volume.  I guess you could create the volume via CLI and that could be considered manually creating the volume/cluster resource.

CFS (Clustered FileSystem) is not supported on the Windows product.

Thank you,

Wally

Hi Wally

  Thank you for the info. Can "Thrash" be used to generate IO in this case where CVM automatically creates the resources? If yes can you please provide the steps to run thrash on windows cluster.

 

Thanks

Hi Wally      I was going

Hi Wally

     I was going through the document and have found the following note in chapter 14 Page 1

Note: CVM (and related cluster-shared disk groups) is supported only in a Microsoft
Hyper-V environment. It is not supported for a physical environment

I am trying to build cluster using two whindows 2008R2 physical nodes.

Let me know if the document is still applicable? and what the note means

Thanks

Rahul

Hi Rahul,

I'm not familar with "Thrash" to be able to provide steps on how to use it.

As for CVM, yes it is supported on Windows Hyper-V clusters only.  It is to allow Live-Migration to work correctly with SFW dynamic disks.

Thank you,

Wally
