Finally a video with sound. Albeit I have a terrible cold and sound like John Wayne, but at least there’s some audio… Have seen some comments on the net on my silence, but at least now you know that I actually can speak.
This video deals with failover clustering on server core. We’re using Starwind to have our virtual Windows Server 2008 DC on Hyper-V to act as an iSCSI-target. Our two virtual Server Core servers are then configured to mount the disks through iSCSI. The commands used for doing this is SC for setting the startup type, net start for starting the iSCSI-service, iscsicli for adding the disks to the servers, diskpart for adding partitions and volumes and finally format to make sure the disk has a filesystem. If you need help with iscsicli, there’s a 90 page userguide over at Microsoft.
When that’s done we’ll add the remote administration feature to be able to administer our cluster. We create the cluster, add a clustered resource, in this case a share and finally we fail it from one node to the other.
If you’ve missed the two other videos, about installation and initial configuration of Server Core, I’ll post them again here:
