HP Proliant DL380 G4 Packaged Cluster with MSA 500 G2

I need some help in configuring this Package Cluster. One of our customer wants to make the two nodes of this Package Cluster both active/active. Please provide me the procedure in doing this. Thanks, i'll appreciate if someone can reply on this immediately.

Hi Antonio!

It's not possible to make trully active/active configuration on MS Cluster Services. You may divided clustered applications between nodes, but it's NOT recommended.

Antonio:


Which application does your customer want to run?

And what is your understanding of "Active/Active"?


When dealing with MSCS, you can only split services between nodes as Ruslan states. You would need a 3rd party Cluster package to go truely active/active, like Polyserve for File Sharing or Veritas Cluster Server.

Some applications provide their own clustering, but may have other requirements.


What OS are the planning to run?
