- Supported HP IA-32 Servers within the Cluster
- Supported Quorum Servers
The Quorum Server provides cluster locking and must be installed and run on a system outside the cluster.
Quorum Server is a separate product provided on the "ServiceGuard Distributed Components" CD. The
node on which the quorum server is running must have network connectivity to the clusters for which it is
providing services. Ensure that the connection with each node is independent of the cluster heartbeat
connection, so that both are not likely to fail at the same time. The quorum server is required for a 2-node
configuration, and recommended for a 3 to 4-node configuration. The quorum server in a Linux
environment can manage up to 2 clusters and 8 nodes.
Requirement: The Quorum Server and clustered nodes must be on the same subnet.
