Re: how to add a FOM on a 2 nodes cluster

Hi @Pakito561,

 

In a 2 node cluster, we should have managers running on both the nodes.

With FOM, you would have 3 managers running.

Even if one node goes down, with RAID 10 volumes datastores will still be online and there would be no production impact. as there won't be a quorum loss.

 

Steps to add FOM to management group:

1. Install FOM ovf on the host (external to the storevirtual storage)

2. Configure FOM in the same storage network

3. Use find option on the TOP of CMC software (Centralised Management Console)

4,. Add FOM IP and then click on find systems

5. Once you see FOM in available systems, right click on the FOM and select ' Add to existing management group'

6. Carefully select the available and required management group

 

You should be able to see the FOM in the management group with 3 managers configured.

Hope this helps.

Great time ahead.
