    MFSYS25 - Shared LUN with dual SCM

    pbas

      I have a MFSYS25 with DUAL SCM.

      The intent is to make a Cluster with SQL Server with Microsoft Windows* 200x Enterprise but....

       

      20. Microsoft Windows Server 2003* cluster support not available
      Problem Cluster support is not available for Microsoft Windows Server 2003* R2 SP2.
      Implication Cluster support is not available to customers using Microsoft Windows Server 2003* R2 SP2.
      Workaround There is currently not a workaround to this issue.
      Status Fix

       

      and

       

      24. In Windows Enterprise Server 2008* Cluster failover testing, it has been observed that cluster nodes may lose access to the clustered shared LUN drives
      Problem In Windows Enterprise Server 2008* Cluster failover testing, it has been observed that cluster nodes may lose access to the clustered shared LUN drives if a node is power cycled. If a node which has lost shared LUN access is the cluster resource owner for the cluster storage resources or becomes the owner, the cluster storage resources will go into an offline state.
      Implication Cluster storage resources going offline would lead to failures in any applications which are dependent on the cluster storage. Resetting SCM1 or power cycling the chassis will restore service.
      Status This erratum will be fixed in a future software release, both FW and MPO drivers.
      Workaround Resetting SCM1 or power cycling the chassis will restore service.

       

       

      The only avaliable solution at this moment is using Windows Enterprise Server 2008 hoping that no node is power cycled.

      And of course wait for the future sofware release (FW and MPO drivers)

       

      Anyone knows when will it be avaliable?

       

       

      Thanks in advance
