Windows 2008 A/A hyperV clustering

Postby guest » Sun Nov 16, 2008 10:06 pm

A single Highly Available VM can only ever run on a single node at one time.
Active/Active in your configuration would indicate that there are separate
VMs running on each node - i.e. Each Node is hosting a VM or multiple VMs.
This defines Active in terms of Failover Clustering.

In your cluster, right-click Services and Applications, and choose
"Configure a Service or Application"
Click "Next"
Select "Virtual Machine"
Click "Next"
Select the appropriate VM from the list and Click "Next"
Click "Next" one more time
Wait
Click "Finish"

Hope this helps,

In addition to what Ryan wrote, I would add that in 2008, Microsoft has
hidden the Cluster Group...but it's still there. All "Cluster Groups" are
now considered "workloads", stressing the need to separate each application
into its own group. Under the covers, each "application or service group" is
still a cluster group...just issue a 'cluster group' command from the
command line and you'll see what I mean.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
John
