  • Live Migration in Hyper-V

    Has anyone got an idea how to set up the hardware to test a Live Migration or is it something that can only be done on a mortgage?
    TIA

    What do you want to know? Do you want to try live migration in a lab or so?

      essentially (according to my engineer behind me..) two hosts, running Ent. edition of 2008 with hyperV installed, clustered..


      shared back end storage (could be iscsi, could be fibre san, could even be a dell MD3000 with dual sas connectors..)

          What about freeNAS or OpenFiler?
          I'd believe both will support ISCSI which would work with hyper-v
          A simple pc would work to run one of those systems.

          edit: just found this one which might help you:

            If you have Technet you can set up Windows Storage Server to try out iSCSI -- works very well once you get into it

              Oh is it available on TechNet? I knew it was there but thought it was only delivered with appliances...
              However I think that the open source options are easier and probably faster to configure...

              just checked technet and there is no Storage server 2003 available however I do see Windows Storage Server 2008 so...

                  Yes, after several hiccoughs, I downloaded it from MSDN.

                    Hey, Stevie.
                    What is the status of your project now?
                    I am trying to do the same here, with two Hyper-V servers (production) that I upgraded to R2. I have an iSCSI storage, and I am working on building the solution.
                    I'll be happy to share our experiences in this matter (and others ).
