By now you should have 3 nodes, each with SIOS Protection Suite for Linux installed and ready for use.

Connecting to Linux Node with the GUI

SIOS Protection Suite has a GUI application to configure the cluster. Please refer to Connecting to a Linux Node with x11 Forwarding for more details about accessing the LifeKeeper GUI.

Basic Configuration

In this tutorial there are three nodes with the following IP address range:

IP Address
node-a (Active)
node-b (Standby)
node-c (Quorum / Witness)

The basic configuration is completed using the following steps:

  • Define the Communication Path Note: There are three nodes in the cluster including node-c (Quorum/Witness). Therefore, 3 communication paths must be defined in order to create bidirectional communication paths between all pairs of nodes.
    • node-a <—> node-b
    • node-a <—> node-c
    • node-b <—> node-c
