If I have a c7000 and in positions 1,2,3,4 there are BL460c blades running Hyper-V 2012 in cluster mode and in position 5 I install a D2220sb storage blade running VSA software presenting the storage via iSCSI using the VSA VM running on blade 4 and the blade in position 4 fails, what happens?
If im running the hyperv cluster, the VSA VM being treated as a regular VM will be moved to a free node like 1,2,3 but that is for the software part. Im looking for clarification on the Quickspecs that say: "VSA software is installed in a virtual machine on a VMware ESX/ESXi & Microsoft Hyper-V host server adjacent to the D2220sb".
a- will the entire D2220sb cease to function because the "adjacent blade" is no longer active?
b- since the VSA software part will be moved to other surviving nodes, will the D2220sb survive too?
Solved! Go to Solution.

the d2220sb is always linked to a single server. And I am afraid that you need to move at least one of your blades. The d2200 and server combination is usually always in adjacent slots, i.e. blade in slot1, d2220sb in slot 2; or blade in slot3 and d2220sb in slot 4. If you do have the d2220sb in slot 5, then you would need to have a blade in slot 6.
Now, if the adjacent blade is really down, then your entire d2220sb will not be accessible anymore. So moving VSAs around will not help you.
