Virtual Connect Enterprise Manager(VCEM) question

Ed had a question regarding the Virtual Connect Enterprise Manager:




Hi… quick question about Automatic Profile Migration within VCEM.

What would trigger or precipitate an Automatic profile migration to a spare server.

Does VCEM have any mechanism within itself to move a profile if a specific physical event occurs?
OR does VCEM depend on HP SIM to tell it that a server is experiencing a Pre Failure or post failure?





Vincent responded:




You choose in SIM which events you want to trigger a failover. VCEM installs an event collection (“VCEM Failover Events” I think) that represents HP’s recommendation but every customer should give this some thought and possibly modify the collection.

Comments? Are you using VCEM in your environment? Let us know if you have determined failover criteria and how it works.
