Disks 3 through 8 are volumes on the iSCSI target storage system. These disks are activated via Disk Manager on the first node, and then formatted in the standard fashion.
The Cluster Administrator wizard is used to create the cluster and assign the resources, and is launched on the first node.
The cluster name is given to the cluster.
The first node of the cluster is identified. The first node name is “dmrtk-srvr-a2”.
The cluster wizard performs its initial analysis of the node, the network, and the storage.
The cluster IP address is given.
The cluster service domain account is provided.
The cluster wizard performs its final analysis.
The Cluster Administrator has the first node of the cluster.
The next step is to add another node to the cluster.
The second node is “dmrtk-srvr-b2”.
The wizard performs its initial analysis of the second node.
The Cluster Administrator now has the second node.
The cluster groups are displayed.
The groups can be assigned to the other node, as needed. Groups 3 and 4 are moved to the other node, as in a fail-over scenario. This storage is now visible to the second node, and no longer visible to the first node. The Disk Manager view below is from the first node after moving the resources to the second node. Notice that disks 7 and 8 are not accessible to the first node.
The cluster is now ready for applications and data.
