DFS Improvements in Windows 2008 R2

יום שלישי, ינואר 20, 2009

Windows 2008 R2 will feature some major DFS improvements, following is an explanation of them: 1. Support for Windows Failover Clusters In Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Failover clusters can be configured to be part of a replication group. Windows Failover clustering technology enables administrators to configure services and applications to be highly available. Busy hub servers located in the datacenter that replicate with many branch office servers are perfect candidates for clustered DFS Replication. These servers are critical to the replication infrastructure and administrators expect high availability from these servers. A failure (hardware/software) on...

Issue:Trend Micro OfficeScan Version 8.0 SP1 on a server 2008 Failover Cluster may cause the cluster service to fail while moving a resource group. Cause:Current TDI Driver of the OfficeScan causes a loss of connectivity between the cluster nodes, and may cause the cluster service on one of the nodes to fail. The current version of  office scan doesn't support Windows Server 2008 Clusters yet. It should be supported in the next version. Workaround:Until the newer version of OfficeScan, a workaround is available for this issue.Follow these instruction : Open Device ManagerSelect View > Show Hidden DevicesExpand Non-Plug and play devicesSelect Trend Micro...

Microsoft’s Virtualization Launch – Key Takeaways

יום שלישי, ספטמבר 16, 2008

I had the opportunity today (16.9.08) to participate in Microsoft’s getVIRTUALnow event, and to present the session "Physical and Virtual Server Management" I presented my take on data center management, which involves automating management tasks in response to system\application states. It was impressive to see the number of vendors that were present in the event. Microsoft seem to be quick in building the required ecosystem of partners that will push it's Virtualization offerings greatly in my opinion. The main point in my presentation was that when looking at the data center (or IT environment) as a whole, tools like Systems...

Geo-Clustering with Windows 2008 – Notes from the Field

יום שני, ספטמבר 1, 2008

One of the best new features in 2008 clusters is the ability to have cluster nodes on different subnets. This is done by introducing a new OR dependency option for resources. In 2008 clusters, you have two options when making a resource depend on more than one resource: AND - Both the resource in this line and one or more previously listed resources must be online before the dependent resource is brought online. OR - Either the resource listed in this line or another previously listed resource must be online before the dependent resource is...
