Environment: All server are microsoft windows 2008 R2 server. For this question specific, we use Microsoft failover cluster - a 2 node cluster.
We have a microsoft failover cluster with 4 clustered applications on it. Those clustered application can run on node 1 or node 2. Each clustered application has:
* an unique DNS name
* an unique IP address
* Clustered Disk
For each clustered application I need to make a SnapDrive Backup with a daily and weekly schedule schema. I need to use the clustered application's IP address because I don't know on witch node the application runs on.
I can't connect to 4 agents (4 different DNS names) in one SC config -> OK, I need to create 4 configs to make this work. No probs.
Is it possible to create 1 schedule and launch those 4 configs. This does not have to be synchronous, sequential is OK.
It is possible to create a configuration that calls other configuration files.
To do this you will need to use one or more of the PRE or POST commands in Snap Creator.
Chances are that you will need to call this a couple times.
Here is an example - note that I am making a lot of assumptions in this example as I don't know the exact use case.
The main config would first need to quiesce all of the applications, then we'd take a Snapshot copy, then we'd unquiesce.
We would also want to make sure that the commands are called from the Snap Creator Server (default behavior is that the commands are called from the Agent), so we'll prepend each command with SERVER: to tell Snap Creator that the command should be executed on the Server and not the Agent.
