ATA vs Live Migrations RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello ,

    We do have three hyper-v server as follows:

    • HV01
    • HV02
    • HV03

    We do have 30 Virtual machines all are windows distributed among hyper-V's as follows:

    • on regular days usually we host 15 VMs on each hyper-v ,and the third one will be in standby state
    • if disaster or failure happened we drain the problematic Hyper-v and migrate all its Vm's to the standby Hyper-v

    Each Hyper-V node configured With The following :

    • NIC Teaming (One Team contain 4 NIC using LACP and hyper-v port as load balancing Mode)
    • Vlan ID
    • Live Migration Is Enabled
    • Replication is enabled on all of the nodes
    • all nodes and Vm's are W2K12R2
    • virtual switches are having the same name

    Some of IT Departments strict policies :(

    • Domain Controllers (4 of them) must be distributed on two nodes (Each node should have two Only)

    A while ago we have deployed ATA using lightweight gateway agents on Domain Controllers during that time we where able to move domain controllers using live migration among all Hyper-V nodes without any issue

    my question is how can enable port mirroring for ata and all hyper-v nodes ? is that be affected when i move the dc or even ata to another hyper-v host ? when live migrating ?

    i have enabled port mirroring on all DC vms as source and on ATA VM as destination as well
