we have installed Symantec Storage Foundation HA 6.0.1 for Windows.
I want to properly configure the read policy.
I'm reading the documentation and I'm a little confused....
For Linux, the "siteread" read policy can be enable, but for Windows it is impossible (available only "Round robin" and "Preferred").
Could you explain why the "siteread" read policy is unavailable for Windows OS?
There have always been certain differences between available features on Unix/Linux and Windows.
Best to check features before a decision is made about about platform and OS.
You may want to reach out to Product Management (via local Veritas office) for answers to your 'why' question....
There is a slight difference how the site awareness feature handled in Windows and Linux, the former has a bit less tunables available and/or documented, however you can configure site aware volumes with SFW 6.1 onwards (not on 6.0.1, IIRC), here is some more info https://sort.veritas.com/public/documents/vie/7.1/windows/productguides/html/sf_admin/ch15s02.htm
