Active Active FileServer Clustering using Windows 2012

    Question

  • We want to implement a workflow where we have to a share single storage LUN to multiple hosts. There will be multiple processing units which will be working on the same folder creating different files.

    For us one folder is one work item (There will be multiple of these getting created and moved all the time)

    In each folder different processes run "sequentially" generating outputs based on o/p of previous process.

    These processes will be running in VM environment on couple of ESX Server on Win 2012.

    These ESXi server are connected to SAN storage where the folders are stored

    What we would like to do is to mount each  LUN on all the VM's. This should enable each VM to see the latest status of the folders.

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi, you dont say how the ESXI servers are connected to the SAN?

    cant you iSCSI the LUNS directly into the 2012's OS?

  • The ESXI servers are connected thru HBA fibre channel to SAN via SAN Switches. The iSCSI feature is not present in current storage. We can only connect LUN's directly to server having 2012 OS thru Fibre Channel.
