Preparing to install Infrastructure Management in high availability cluster mode

The following are the prerequisite tasks that you must perform before installing Infrastructure Management in HA mode:

  • Ensure that the cluster configuration is of ‘node and cluster disk majority’ type.
  • Ensure that the cluster name does not contain an underscore (_).

  • Ensure that a visible quorum disk is available.
  • Ensure that the HA installer files are not copied to the shared disk.
  • Ensure that you have the identical operating system version (for example, Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise Server) on the primary and the secondary computers.
  • Ensure that you have identical hardware configuration on the primary and the secondary computers.
  • Ensure that the primary and the secondary computers are located in the same domain.
  • Configure the logical IP address.
  • Ensure that the primary and the secondary computers have identical time stamps.
  • Ensure that the Microsoft Clustering software is installed on both the primary and the secondary computers.
  • Ensure that you add the common logical IP address/host name to be allocated to the two computers to the domain name service (DNS).
  • Map the disk to be shared between the two computers with the same directory name and/or directory path on both the computers.
  • The IP address, disk, and network name must be present in the same group.
  • Ensure that your cluster is configured correctly by running the hostname command in a command prompt window.
  • For HA installations on Solaris systems, ensure that this command returns the virtual host name and not the physical host name.
