This section provides an example of an Active/Standby Configuration. In this configuration, Server 1 is considered active because it is running NFS and exporting the file system. If Server 1 fails, Server 2 mounts and exports the file system automatically.

Active/Standby Configuration Example

Configuration Notes:

  • The NFS software must be installed on both servers.
  • The underlying file system (File System A) must be on a shared (or replicated) disk.
  • The NFS export point is /home/test.
  • The exported file system must have the same mount point on both Server 1 and Server 2.
  • Server 2 cannot access files and directories on the shared disk while Server 1 is active.

Creating a Resource Hierarchy to Server 1:

Server: Server1
Export Point: /home/test
IP Tag: ip-172.17.100.202
NFS Tag: nfs-/home/test

Extending a Resource Hierarchy to Server 2:

Template Server: Server1
Tag to Extend: nfs-/home/test
Target Server: Server2
Target Priority: 10
