Abstract

A solution is disclosed for configuring a TMR Server in High Availability MSCS for NT environment. Obtaining that kind of configuration following the steps described below: Scenario: Machines SMADAVG01 and SMADAVG02 are the ones who provide us the high availability solution. The cluster virtual node is SMADAVG00 been unit J:\ the one to be shared for both machines SMADAVG01 and SMADAVG02. The High Availability solution, using MSCS for NT, acts active-pasive mode. For a certain moment of time, one node of the cluster (ie: SMADAVG01) is the owner of the cluster (active node), who is also the owner of the shared unit (J:\ in our example). The other node of the cluster acts as pasive node (ie: SMADAVG02) is not able to use the shared unit at that time.
