Need Help Configuring Hyper-V Brokers RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have seen many articles stating that a Hyper-V broker is necessary for failover replicas. Just little on how to do this. I have a 5 node cluster on the Primary side and a 3 node cluster on the DR side both with EqualLogic Sans.  I have created the role for the Hyper-V Broker on both sides. ProdBroker and DRBroker are their respective names and have added them to my servers in AD. They are both on the VM public subnet to use my teamed NICs. Coniguring the broker is where I get lost. My questions is this: The "Specify the primary server" in the Add Authorization Entry of the primary side window should either be one of the host servers or the cluster, correct? The next section "Specify the default location to store replica files" should be set to the DR cluster, I believe. Or should it be the cluster share or the individual mounted volumes in the share. Also, what do I set the DRBroker to? I don't want to replicate that direction. Any help?
