- If using replicated volumes, install SIOS DataKeeper software on each server and create your mirrors.
- Install and configure the LifeKeeper Core, which includes the LifeKeeper IP Recovery Kit and LifeKeeper Microsoft IIS Recovery Kit, on each server.
- Install and configure Microsoft IIS on all servers.
