Witness server

Hi Expert

We are plan to deploy 2 cluster HPE SVT using DL380 G10. The cluster only 2 node.

Do we need to buy each cluster with each witness or can one witness handle 2 cluster?

Hi psrang,

One Witness server ( arbiter) can manage two clusters with two node each.

Re: Witness server

Hi Shivam

Thanks for you feedback.

Got it, at least we can save the physical server for Arbiter.

Hi

the arbiter is just a service that runs on a windows server or workstation

it does not use any resources and can run on nearly any system including 

domain controller windows 10 workstation.

so it does need a dedicated server. as long as it is not part of your cluster.

Give a KUDO if this helps
