File and Print server on VM
Posted on 2013-06-17
I am in a situation where I need to put a plan on paper and convenience higher management for virtualizing a physical FNP server to VM.
We have one physical FNP Server which has a 2 Local Disk and it has been connected to storage lun;s for its File Datastore. We already have a DR Plan like below.
1. In case if the Prodcution server , Server1 goes down due to H/W Failure or Corrupt OS , then Fire Up the standby DR Server , Server 2
2. Disconnect the luns from server 1 and connect them server2 and make the server online
I have to convenience higher management for virtualizing this FNP so that there will be HA for this FNP and reduce this manual lun switch over.
Can anyone highlight some points which I can put infornt my management ?
