Connecting 2 clustered servers to HDS SAN

Hi,

We plan to cluster two 2003 Enterprise servers together and connect to a SAN.

Each server will be at a separate datacenter. Each server has two LAN nic's and two HBA's.

I need to document this and draw some sort of diagram inc LAN cards, HBA's, fibre switch ports, cluster management etc.


Does anyone know any good resources I could use to build this and to look at how the whole thing fits together??

Help would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks

Scott

Visio is what most folks use. How are you planning to have both machines connected to the SAN? Do you have two HDS boxes with synchronis replication or are your datacenters near enough that you have a fibre run from each cluster node to the same HDS box?

I don't think he's asking how to do it, he's asking how to document it.

This is a pretty involved process. There are a few ways you can set it up, either as a geo cluster or by using a hardware system.

What is the cluster going to be running and how far apart are the nodes going to be? What kind of network connection do you have between the two sites?
