VCS cluster 6.0 LAB using VMware workstation

Recommended Posts

The setup

Hardware used:

Dell Laptop ( Model N4010 ) with 8 GB memory and i5 processor

Software used:

1. SFHA 6.0 suit from Symantec (trial version) – Download here

2. Solaris 10 Update 10 iso

3. VMware workstation (you can also use virtual box)

4. Openfiler (for shared storage)

The setup looks like :


We need 3 virtual machines to be configured in VMware workstation. 2 for the cluster nodes and 1 for the openfiler OS. We will be using iscsi storage from openfiler as the coordinator (fencing) disks. The two cluster nodes VMs will have 4 NIC cards :

- Two for LLT interconnects [ host-only networks in VMware Workstation]

- One for the OS ( network) [ Custom network in VMware workstation ]

- One for connecting to the openfiler ( network) [ Custom network in VMware workstation ]

Lets get started with first installing and configuring the 2 Solaris 10 Virtual Machines and later on openfiler virtual machine.
