vSphere 4.1 Essential Plus
2 x R710, 72 GB RAM – SAU-Cluster [192.168.0.0]
EqualLogic 6 TB [10.10.10.1] iscsi
We have an ISA 2006 for routing traffic and internal firewalling.
1 x R720 72 GB RAM
PowerVault 24 TB NAS – [10.10.10.2] [Windows Server 2012] iscsi
Juniper Switch to ISP and R720 DMZ – then some routing to our internal network.
Plan is to host 30 Windows 7 VMs to be accessed remotely – these PCs will access in house application. I thought I could use Terminal Services, but the application does not run on 64 bit OS.
So if I put 32 Bit, it will only see 4 GB, thus I ended up with 30 Windows 7 VMs.
This new host will be in the DMZ, I need to be able to add it to my vCenter Server, and Create a new Cluster called [SIL-Cluster]. Would like to know if I can add it to HA on SAU-Cluster; It should also be able to see the EqualLogic.
Then I need to add the PowerVault NAS to the clusters and then move some of the VMs from the EqualLogic to the new NAS to make room for the 30 VMs.
I cannot upgrade to vSphere 5 yet, so I need ideas around my current version of VMWare.
….you are allowed to scrap the idea down and post a new idea or approach – I am still at planning stages.
