configure shared storage for VM for SQL Server Cluster
hello all ,
currently we have a requirement for SQL server virtual machine and this reacquired a share storage to be configured for the SQL Cluster , can you please let me know how to configure the shared storage for this two SQL Virtual machine ,
appreciate your help team
You can use a 3rd party VM for your share I suppose
thanks for the reply .
there is now way to configure the Storage as RAW ?
You can't share a block device to multiple VMs without a "cluster" aware filesystem. Not related to raw or whatever.
thanks for your update , but can i assign the same LUN for to VM and make it read only for the first VM and Read Write for second VM ?
That's possible. A bit weird but yeah, it will work if you only need to read data.
It also works in XCP-ng directly, you can mount the same VDI to another VM, but in RO.
@mjaber Did you try with an approach of having a VM and expose the raw disk over iSCSI and use it for your SQL cluster VMs?
It's possible that Dom0 can do it for you without need of an extra VM.
