Require Documentation for implementing HP service manager in MS cluster enviornmnet

Hi,

 

We require to implement HP SM on MS clsuter enviornement.

 

Pls provide documention for the same.

 

 

We have been through horizonyal scaling & vertical scaling , but it is hard to understand from cluster point of view.

 

Thanks

There are sections in SM help center for horizontal/vertical scalling implementation.

You can search and download SM help center from SSO.

Re: Require Documentation for implementing HP service manager in MS cluster enviornmnet

MS Cluster is not mentioned in sm help server. It's mentioned in Support matrices -> section "Transparent technology and virtualization support".

 

Usually ms cluster or other cluster softwares, like HPUX Service Guard, IBM AIX HACMP are used to provide HA(High Availability) solution. e.g. for sm loadbalancer, sm db. From sm side, we provide scripts to monitor, start, stop sm service. Then ms cluster expert use it to configure ms cluster. For detail, need to refer to ms cluster document.

 

http://support.openview.hp.com -> Support matrices

***

In recent years, a number of “transparent” hardware and software technologies and virtualization solutions (such as Citrix, Microsoft Cluster Software, and VMware) have become increasingly prevalent. These solutions operate in the technology layers adjacent to the operating systems or, in some cases, as extensions of the operating systems. Similarly, database solutions offer transparent components as supported elements.

 

HP supports Service Manager running on operating systems and databases on particular platforms as described in the matrix above, not specific hardware and software configurations. HP will support Service Manager customers who run HP software products on supported operating systems and databases, irrespective of whether they are running transparent or virtualization solutions in their environment. HP does not support these transparent or virtualization technologies directly. Since the providers of these technologies support a set of certified operating systems and hardware, the customer and the providers of these technologies will be responsible for any interactions or issues that arise at the hardware or operating system layer as a result of their use.

 

HP will not require customers to re-create and troubleshoot every issue in a non-transparent environment; however, HP does reserve the right to request that its customers diagnose certain issues in a native certified operating system environment without the transparent technology. HP will only make this request when there is reason to believe that the environment is a contributing factor to the reported issue.

 

While Service Manager is expected to function properly with these transparent technologies in place, there may be performance implications, which can invalidate HP’s typical sizing and recommendations. Analysis must be performed within the context of the specific application to be hosted in a virtual environment to minimize potential resource overload, which can have significant impact on performance and scalability, particularly under peak load.

A customer did provide a document about this. You may reference it:

[ Edited ]

I write a km document about this:
Any document for implementing HP service manager in MS cluster environment
http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/KM00966589

 

I also write a document to list ways to use HA for SM implementation:

http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/KM00966590

 

Please feel free to give feedback to km document, so we can improve it.

 

Wish this could benefit more customers.
