Can we configure cluster on Virtual Machines of VMware having installed RedHat (RHEL 5)

Hi All,

 

Is it possible configuring cluster on Virtual Machines of VMware having installed RedHat (RHEL 5)?

 

If yes, Do we need to configure fence device, and How to configure fence device?

Hi Senthil,

 

Red Hat Enterprise Linux requires support for a fencing agent.  In RHEL 5.7+ the fence agent to use with VMware is fence_vmware_soap which uses the VMware vCenter SOAP API to perform fencing.  In versions of RHEL prior to 5.7, an older agent called fence_vmware was used.  This agent is not fully supported and customers should switch to using the fence_vmware_soap agent.
