InfoScale 7.0 for Windows: Installing InfoScale Availability on a machine where InfoScale Storage is already installed

To use Storage Foundation for Windows (SFW) for storage management and Veritas Cluster Server for Windows (VCSW) for high availability, you can install InfoScale Availability on a machine where InfoScale Storage is already installed or vice-a-versa.

The co-existence of VCSW and SFW however has the following limitations:

  • If Keyless licensing type is selected during the product installation, checks performed to monitor the number of days of product installation are based on the SFW component. As a result, if you do not enter a valid license key or do not add the host as a managed host within 60 days of InfoScale Storage installation, a non-compliance error is logged every 4 hrs in the Event Viewer.
  • After InfoScale Storage is installed, the VCS configuration wizards discover only SFW dynamic disks for configuring storage resources in an application service group. If you have already configured NetApp or native disk (LDM) resources, you can continue to use them. However, you cannot add or remove any of these resources using the VCS configuration wizards. Then, you must manually modify the service group to add or delete the NetApp or LDM resources.
