Connection to volume lost after initial configuration

I have two DL360s accessing the same volume which is controlled by an MSA1500. On both servers I initialized the partition and for a brief period I was able to write to the partition from both servers but then something happens and I am only able to gain access from one of the two servers. I have been able to resolve this by running a Check Disk with Automatic Error Correction but this problem keeps occuring.

Re: Connection to volume lost after initial configuration

It looks like you have an invalid configuration. I guess you are using Windows on your DL360? You need additional software for Windows which implements a shared file system - the basic Windows OS does not have this feature and the Microsoft Cluster Server (MSCS) only provides 'shared nothing' access to the data.

Can you recommend a software vendor? I honestly did not know this problem existed.

Hi,

Polyserve Matrix server can allow concurrent disk/file access from separate servers. Or else, as Uwe suggest, you setup an MSCS Cluster. This required Windows Enterprise Edition. Veritas Cluster Server might also be an option for you.
