The question I am mentioning below has been raised by multiple people, but just want to get a more broader picture.
We are trying to implement Hyperion Essbase (188.8.131.52) Active/Passive Clustering in Solaris 10 Update 13.
The two essbase nodes are actually LDOMs (VMs) on two different physical Oracle SPARC T4-2 servers.
The storage (luns) is being provided from Pillar SAN storage. There is no NAS storage for Essbase nodes.
My question here is, how do I provide a shared storage for setting up the Active/Passive clustering ?
As we don't have any NAS storage we cannot provide the shared point through NFS protocol. The only option now I see is by providing a shared LUN to both the Essbase nodes and then use QFS as a clustering filesystem. Just wanted to know if QFS will work in this solution as OCFS2 works in Linux ?
Please do let me know your feedback and do you have any better recommendation for implementing the shared filesystem in clustering mode.
Thanks and Regards
