Feedback to concepted configuration

bump

Dear Sir or Madame,

I was wondering if you might give use the feedback to our current configuration running and regarding the OS:

Meanwhile the Failover Cluster Feature was removed, because MSA2012SA is incompatible with our two HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen8 with HPE 421 Smart Array controllers and Microsoft Windows 2012 R2 Datacenter running Microsoft Hyper-V as CSV (cluster shared volumen). We are currently running Hyper-V replica between our two HPE ProLiant DL380p Gen8. The virtual maschines running are currently stored at a DS3100 enclosure connected to HPE ProLiant DL360p with Active Directory Service. The MSA2012-SA LFF is connected to both HPE ProLiant DL380p with HPE SAS HDDs as RAID5. MSA2012SA does not work as CSV (cluster shared volumen) for us. It (the MSA2012SA) is incompatible / not usable as CSV.

I think the question might maybe be if to invest in a other MSA2050 SAS or MSA1050 SAS (as shared storage) for the two running HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen8 and build a Windows 2012 R2 Datacenter Server Failover Cluster for HA virtual maschines with this configuration or instead to invest in two additional HPE ProLiant DL380p Gen9 or Gen10 and local storage and build a Windows 2016 or Windows 2019 Server Failover Cluster with Microsoft Storage Spaces Direct (as shared storage) for HA virtual maschines. What would be the "better invest" ?!?

Should we better leave this configuration (as described above) runnig for two to three more years with VM replicas and invest in two brand new Gen10 hosts (in the next 36 to 52 month) with Microsoft Windows 2016 Server and running this both as a cluster with Microsoft Storage Spaces Direct and the storage in the ProLiant Gen8 or Gen10 (instead of MSA2012SA with Gen8 and Windows 2012 R2 Operating System)? So to say good by to Windows 2012 R2 Server in the next 36 to 52 month and HPE Gen8 and hello to Gen10 and Microsoft Windows 2016 or 2019 Server: So to build a cluster with two brand new HPE ProLiant and Storage Spaces and copy then the existing and running virtual machines all from Gen8 to the brand new HPE ProLiant DL-Series (360 or 380) Gen9 or Gen10 Hyper-V cluster with storage spaces direct?

Thank you in advance.

Re: Feedback to concepted configuration

What do you expect from copy and paste the same question again?

A new discussion why the old MSA2012 cannot work with your servers?


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Feedback to concepted configuration

It's not regarding that I want to get the MSA further working. It is regarding what to preffere to buy to build a cluster instead of buying a other MSA as CSV for the two Proliant or maybe two new ProLiant without a extra MSA. What to preffere?
