HP Serviceguard Toolkit for NFS: customized for your unique environment
The HP Serviceguard Toolkit for NFS:
Allows you to use Serviceguard to set up highly available NFS servers.
Is easily customized for your unique environment
Includes special health monitors that provide continual watch over NFS services
The HP Serviceguard Toolkit for NFS has been enhanced to provide Modular Package support.
HP Serviceguard Toolkit for NFS (Network File Server) Toolkit uses HP Serviceguard to set up highly available NFS servers.
An NFS server is a host that "exports" its local directories and makes them available for client hosts to mount using NFS. On the NFS client, these mounted directories look to users like part of the client's local file system. With HP Serviceguard NFS, the NFS server package containing the exported file systems can move to a different node in the cluster in the event of failure.
How it works
The HP Serviceguard Toolkit for NFS supports the following configurations:
Simple failover from an active NFS server node to an idle NFS server node.
Failover from one active NFS server node to another active NFS server node, where the adoptive node supports more than one NFS package after the failover.
A host configured as an adoptive node for more than one NFS package. The host may also be prevented from adopting more than one failed package at a time.
Cascading failover, where a package may have up to three adoptive nodes.
Server-to-server cross mounting, where one server may mount another server's file systems, and the mounts are not interrupted when one server fails.
