VCS in VXVM


Hi Folks,

I am trying to configure 2 node vcs cluster in linux rhel5 on vmware,tried a lot to configure openfiler but i never succeeded.

My scenario is installed 2 rhel5 guest nodes, and istalled vcs cluster on both the nodes want to implement Veritas 2 node cluster.

I am not sure whether my question makes sense or not.
VXVM : veritas Volume manager is also installed on both the nodes,is there any possibility with the help of VXVM can i configure VCS 2 node cluster.


Any piece of help is appreciated.

Thanks & regards
Niranjan.

Hi Niranjan,

VCS and VxVM are two different entities. VCS is a cluster package and VxvM is required to manage Volumes.

VxVM is not a necessity to configure a VCS cluster, however it is recommended.

Also, I think you are trying to install Openfiler to have shared storage. Right ?
If yes, I would suggest you to install Starwind, you can have one month trial license. Trust me, it is awesome for learning purpose and consumes very less RAM.

If for some reason, you want to stick to Openfiler, see below links.

You are welcome jnreddy. You will not be able to use Openfiler LUNs as SCSI-3 PR Disks (required for I/O Fencing in VCS). Use Starwind, its free for one month and is awesome.

If you query has been resolved, please mark this thread as Solved, it is very useful for others. Thanks.

Yes, you can have I/O Fencing through Starwind iSCSI LUNs as they support SCSI-3 PR.
