UCS Domain Clustering

Hi Everyone and hope to be safe from detriment of time!

How to cluster UCS domain?

I want to cluster UCS domain, I mean I want to have one domain name but multiple server if one of my domain server goes down the other should takeover.

best regards.

Hi,

you should get used to the documentation and possibly redefine your requirements. Or at least make them explicit.

There are obviously several possibilities to get a failover scenario. Are you thinkign about the full domain or some services or some servers?

However, get used to the UCS architecture it might help you in understanding.

UCS is a “single-master mutli-dc” system. This means the master is the one responsible for any writing actions (ie password changes) while the other servers have only read-only copies.

This means if the master fails most of services located on the other servers are still accessible.

If you want to have nearly 100% really high available you should consider using something like the HA feature of VMware.

However, tell us what you exaclty want and we might give you further information.
