Hello, and good afternoon to you all.
For one of our cluster deployments, we've been requested to create a Cluster Shared Filesystem including 9 physical servers and 3 VMware VMs (vSphere 5.0 or 5.5, if this matters), all running RHEL6.5. The VMs would be using RDM-P and adhering to all the CFS-inside-a-VM stuff, as always.
Performance and sizing issues aside, is this a supported configuration for SFCFSHA? I know using this for VCS is fully supported (and even advertised), but I can't seem to find the mention to this on CFS mounts.
Thanks for the attention
This should be ok, - as you say this is supported for VCS, as it says at,https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/virtualized-resilience
Veritas Cluster Server users can choose how they want to architect their application failover environment: virtual to virtual, virtual to physical, physical to virtual – each configuration is supported
So should be ok with CFS as CFS is supported using VMWare - see https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/articles/storage-foundation-cluster-file-system-ha-vmware-vm...
If you are using RDMP then really the VM is no different from a physical server
