Re: EVA and CA EVA and MS exchange

The best idea is to boot both nodes of the cluster at the main site from the SAN and have some identical "dark" hardware at the DR site. Replicate all of your volumes (even your C drives) over to the DR site and if you lose your main site boot your "dark" hardware.

This is a very fast & loose description. You need to engage with an HP partner who knows their way around C.A. projects.

There is some planning needed on the LAN & WAN config of your switches and routers to support "foreign" IP addreses suddenly appearing at the DR site but it is do-able.

You will of course need 2 EVA's, 4 Cisco 9216i's or similar, a nice wide pipe between your sites and some CA licenses.

best of luck!
