I just finished installing this and I've migrated about 70% of users over. It has been in the environment for about 2 weeks now. I have done 3 tests for failover, and it has yet to complete successfully. Well it does actually failover, but I get a different error everytime when using the CMS management console. Is this normal? I have yet to receive a green "completed" dialog box when using the CMS management console to move the CMS.

I didn't save the errors, but one time it said there may be data loss because it couldn't move the checksum log file and the stores didn't mount. So i mounted them manually and everything was okay. I'm learning that you definitely need patience when using the EMC and the CMS management console.

I saw that article as well. Yes the cluster is across different subnets, but they are connected to a 1gig connection. I've only used the CMS management gui to do this. I saw that one guy in that blog says doing it in the command line from the passive node will better the chances of successful completion.
