Pinned topic Multiple FSM nodes

‏2012-11-15T16:59:35Z |
As far as I know there is only 1 FSM stack per install. Is there any way to get multiple FSM's in there, for HA reasons ?

    Hello Renauld,

    Do you know how can I put 2 FSMs in a Cluster HA? I Can't find any documentation on that.

    Thanks!!!

    What version do you have installed, GA3 is out now, and you should upgrade to it.
    Install the second FSM module on a second chassis once you have it.

    no you cannot put a FSM in a cluster... the FSM is not critical to the functionality of the FlexSystem blades. It's simply a provisioning, out of band management and configuration tool. Only completely necessary if your running PowerPC blades.

    Effectively, actually you cannot put FSM in HA, but be patient ... 1 or 2 month ;)
