HP D2600 Keeps Crashing When Connected To Two Hosts
Posted on 2012-08-22
Hi there, We have just purchased two DL370 G6 servers each with a P812 smart array controller and a shared D2600 disk enclosure with 12 2TB disks in. We planned to install each server onto a seperate bootable logical disk on the D2600 which would then also store all the virtual images to act as a clustered shared volume in the event of a hardware server fault. However, whenever we install onto the D2600, we can get both OSs (Win Datacenter 2008 R2 64-Bit) installed and a few drivers and updates, then the logical disks appear to become corrupted and unusable.
Troubleshooting steps taken:
We have built one server at a time, which appears to be fine. However, as soon as another server is added and is up and working, it shortly seems to crash and lose both environments. Can you provide any information why this may be occuring. We did consult with an HP reseller who themselves spoke to HP regarding this and we were given this hardware as the best solution in this configuration.
If this is the wrong configuration, please can anyone suggest a suitable piece of equipment to do this job?
