MS SQL Cluster Support

[ Edited ]



Good day :)


We install a 2-node SQL Cluster with the following settings:


  • OS: Windows Server 2008 Enterprise R2 (64bit) with SP1
  • Ms SQL Server 2008 Enterprise R2 (64bit)
  • Windows Failover Cluster
  • Storage: HP SAN

We want to make sure if the HP Data Protector Version A.06.02 Build 370 does support SQL cluster Backup

Re: MS SQL Cluster Support



you have to install DP localy on the cluster member. Map a network drive to DC-Cellmanager\omniback and run setup from the x8664 folder. The setup will detect the cluster and install DP cluster aware.

Configure the backup to point to the virtual server, all other settings are the same to a physical server.

Do you want to take a LAN or a SAN backup?

If you want to take SAN backup you must zone your library to the cluster nodes. The library is the available to the virtual servers.
