ResolutionClustering of Microsoft Windows Server 2003 cluster-aware applications in many configurations is possible. Create a “VE—to--VE“ cluster, or configure a dedicated server as an active node and use a VE as a passive member of a cluster. Using VEs as redundant cluster nodes and storing them on a single Virtuozzo server with high density enables support of several Application Clusters by introducing a single redundant physical server with Virtuozzo.
1. Configure support for Windows cluster on a VE you would like to join to a cluster, using either Virtuozzo Management Console :
- Go to VZMC, Virtuozzo Virtual Environments
- Right-click on a VE you would like to join to a cluster.
- Go to Tasks and choose Configure Support for Windows cluster
or use the command line utilities:
vzctl set VEID --failover_cluster yes –save
vzctl restart VEID
2. Create a shared disk
3. Login to the VE via Remote Desktop and create/add the server to a cluster using the standard Microsoft Cluster administrator. (Start, Administrative tools, Cluster administrator)
