After the cluster creation you can now create cluster drive. This drive will mirror data between the nodes. Alternatively you can also create a shared drive that is accessed by both nodes via iSCSI, SAS or Fibre Channel.
There are 2 types of cluster drives
Storage of both nodes will mirror between nodes
Both nodes accessing same storage accessed via iSCSI, Fibre Channel or SAS
This example will show the creation of the most common option “Drive Mirror”.
If you wish to create a cluster drive please click first on “Create Cluster Drive” within “Cluster Drive Management”
Select the type of storage. You can create drive mirror or a shared drive that is accessed by both nodes via iSCSI, SAS or Fibre Channel.
In this example we will create a drive mirror for virtualization purpose
Chose name for the new drive
Select the purpose for this drive
– Virtualization – for running virtual machines on it
– Storage – for running NAS / iSCSI Services on it
Select the local drives from every node
Assign the IP address for this drive – this IP will be used for accessing the drive and for the VNC Server
Select drive size
You can see the creation progress in the drive overview
After the creation drive will show up with optimal state
