Im setting up a network for not for profit organization, they do not have a SAN or a NAS capable of ISCSI
I have 2 Dell R310 servers as my HV hosts with
2TB Raid 10 volume
24 Gigs of Ram
04 Gigabit nics
on each server (I know its Not the best but thats all they have right now)
They do have a stable gigabit network thanks to donated Cisco hardware,
Whats the best way to setup a highly available file server to minimize downtime in case one HV host crashes?
i know i can do DFSR but is not an ideal solution, cause of the file locking issues.
File shares holds mainly M$ office documents and Quickbook Databases. i managed to clear up a lot of unwanted stuff from the old file server so now we have around 600 Gigs of data
