none
Preferred Owners

  • Hello,

    I have several clusters with two nodes A & B.

    On the Services Applications what is the difference between:

    - Not checking any node

    - Checking both nodes at the same time

    Thanks,

    DOm

  • Hello,

    Thanks for the articles, apparently it shows that if we have "All Preferred" Selected or none at all it is following the same path which does not match the various tests I have done (: When both "All preferred" are set:

    - the failover is slower than when none

    - the percentage of failures when "All Preferred" is selected versus No Preferred at all is 65% more failures...

    Thanks,

    Dom

  • Hi,

    By failure do you mean failover? Selecting both nodes is not equal to selecting no nodes through Failover Cluster Manager since the node to the top will be given more preference. As the help text on the UI states - "Select the preferred owners for this clustered role. Use the buttons to list them IN ORDER FROM MOST PREFERRED AT THE TOP TO LEAST PREFERRED AT THE BOTTOM...

  • Hello,

    No, by failures I mean shares not failling over to the new node, which means the share is not available anymore.

    Thank you for the explanation about the differences between No node selected and all nodes selected.

    Thanks,

    DOm
