Is it possible to configure two instances of ontap8 simulator "7-mode nodes" as an HA cluster - in the physical world the nodes would be connected by two infiniband cards and "talk" to each other via the cluster interconnects... has anyone done this with simulator instances? I'd like to see a "cf failover" and "cf giveback" in an ontap8 simulator. Dave Lacerte FSE
Clustering works for me without a problem in 7G simulator. Two instances run though within the same Ubuntu VM, so spoofing infiniband cluster interconnect is easy. Not sure how it is meant to work with ONTAP 8, 7G-mode.
To configure the Data ONTAP Simulator for the (cluster) Active Active Pair do the following
CFO Step I:
Run the Setup and when it ask for the following say yes and continue the setup Would you like to install as a cluster? [no]: yes ====================================> Say yes to install the Active Active Pair (Cluster) Node
CFO Step II: Now you will find node1 & node2 simulators installed in the given path.
CFO Step III: Run the setup script for each node and configure the interface which needs to take over a partner IP address during failover.
