Dual FOM Servers

Hi All

 

I am faily new to the technical design of Storvirtual but I have a question about the FOM.  I have a strange situation with a customer where i am proposing a 2 server VSA but would like to deploy 2 FOM servers.  The dual FOM is preferrable due to the proposed location for a single FOM (near fork lift trucks and bad drivers).

 

My question is is it supported/possible to have 2 FOM servers managing a single storage cluster ?

 

Thanks

Re: Dual FOM Servers

software doesn't allow it.  you can't have two FOMs.

 

if you had no technical way to avoid the need for that extra "FOM", you will have to get one additional VSA license which you can buy and use either as an extra storage node and manager or simply as a manager and not join it with the domain.  you cannot have two FOMs, nor can you have a FOM and a Virtual Manager, nor can you have two virtual managers.
