We have Storage Foundation SP1. I have a 2 node cluster at primary and one cluster at DR site without GCO. Now i need to install Storage Foundation SP2. For this i need to install SP2 on Active node and as per symantec recommendation we should switchover the services of the application to Passive.
I am a new user of SF can anybody tell me what is the procedure of Switchover and prerequisties so then i safely swithover the services to the passive.
You need to use cluster commands/utilities to switch Cluster Service Group.
Is this Windows Cluster or Veritas Cluster?
Which OS? Which SF version with SP1? 5.1 perhaps?
Are you reading SFW Installation Guide?
Find appropriate documentaion here: https://sort.symantec.com/documentation
For example under the heading: Veritas Storage Foundation and High Availability, find your SF version under the Windows column. For example, SF 5.1 SP2 product guides:
Veritas Storage Foundation and High Availability Solutions 5.1 SP2 Installation and Upgrade Guide :
I would recomend the following:
Note I assume you are using 5.1 in which case when you install SP2, this means install SP2 for both SF and VCS (in previous versions of VCS you could not do this as VCS nodes had to be at the same SP level).
