6 2 Introduction to Windows Server 2012 Failover Clustering 2.1 Overview Window Server 2012 Failover Clustering provides the capability to tie multiple servers together to offer high availability and scalability for business-critical applications such as Microsoft Exchange, Hyper-V, Microsoft SQL Server, and file servers. Clustering is designed to maintain data integrity and provide failover support. Windows Server 2012 Failover Clustering can scale up 64 nodes in a single cluster. Windows Server 2012 Failover Clustering includes new and changed functionality from the prior release included in Windows Server 2008 R2. This functionality supports increased scalability, continuously available file-based server application storage, easier management, faster failover, and more flexible architectures for failover clusters. For a complete list of changes and new features included in Windows Server 2012 Failover Clustering, please refer to Microsoft TechNet. Failover Clustering is included in both the Standard and Datacenter versions of Windows Server Active/Active Clusters In active/active clusters, all nodes are active. In the event of a failover, the remaining active node takes on the additional processing operations, which causes a reduction in the overall performance of the cluster. Active/passive cluster configurations are generally recommended over active/active configurations because they often increased performance, availability, and scalability. Microsoft Exchange 2013 and SQL Server 2012 support a configuration that falls into the realm of what would be considered as an active/active cluster configuration. These particular configurations will not be discussed as they are beyond the scope of this document. For detailed information about Microsoft Exchange 2013 and SQL Server 2012 clustering, please refer to Dell Compellent Knowledge Center. 2.3 Active/Passive Clusters In active/passive clustering, the cluster includes active nodes and passive nodes. The passive nodes are only used if an active node fails. Active/Passive clusters are commonly known as failover clusters. For example, file and print environments use the active/passive cluster model since two nodes cannot own the same disk resource at one time. Windows Server 2008 Failover Clustering operates in this mode. January 2013 How to Setup a Microsoft Server 2012 Failover Cluster 2
7 2.4 Quorum Configurations The following information on quorums contains information taken from the Microsoft TechNet article entitled: Configure and Manage the Quorum in a Windows Server 2012 Failover Cluster The quorum for a cluster is determined by the number of voting elements that must be part of active cluster membership for that cluster to start properly or continue running. By default, every node in the cluster has a single quorum vote. In addition, a quorum witness (when configured) has an additional single quorum vote. You can configure one quorum witness for each cluster. A quorum witness can be a designated disk resource or a file share resource. Each element can cast one vote to determine whether the cluster can run. Whether a cluster has quorum to function properly is determined by the majority of the voting elements in the active cluster membership. To increase the high availability of the cluster, and the roles that are hosted on that cluster, it is important to set the cluster quorum configuration appropriately. The cluster quorum configuration has a direct effect on the high availability of the cluster, for the following reasons: Be aware that the full function of a cluster depends on quorum in addition to the following factors: January 2013 How to Setup a Microsoft Server 2012 Failover Cluster 3
8 For example, a cluster that has five nodes can have quorum after two nodes fail. However, each remaining node would serve clients only if it had enough capacity to support the clustered roles that failed over to it and if the role settings prioritized the most important workloads. The cluster software automatically configures the quorum for a new cluster, based on the number of nodes configured and the availability of shared storage. This is usually the most appropriate quorum configuration for that cluster. However, it is a good idea to review the quorum configuration after the cluster is created, before placing the cluster into production. To view the detailed cluster quorum configuration, you can you use the Validate a Configuration Wizard to run the Validate Quorum Configuration test. In Failover Cluster Manager, the basic quorum configuration is displayed in the summary information for the selected cluster. The following quorum types are available in Windows Server 2012 Failover Clustering: Node majority (no witness) Only nodes have votes. No quorum witness is configured. The cluster quorum is the majority of voting nodes in the active cluster membership. Node majority with witness (disk or file share) Nodes have votes. In addition, a quorum witness has a vote. The cluster quorum is the majority of voting nodes in the active cluster membership plus a witness vote. A quorum witness can be a designated disk witness or a designated file share witness. No majority (disk witness only) No nodes have votes. Only a disk witness has a vote. The cluster quorum is determined by the state of the disk witness. The cluster has quorum if one node is available and communicating with a specific disk in the cluster storage. Generally, this mode is not recommended, and it should not be selected because it creates a single point of failure for the cluster. 2.5 Using MPIO with Microsoft Failover Clusters Using MPIO with clustering is supported in both round-robin and failover-only configurations. Windows Server 2012 automatically defaults Compellent Storage Center volumes to a round-robin MPIO configuration. In Windows Server 2012, the MPIO load balance policy for each volume can be modified in Disk Management under the MPIO tab of the volume properties. A default load balance policy for MPIO can also be set, and any new volumes on the server will automatically be set to use the specified MPIO load balance policy. January 2013 How to Setup a Microsoft Server 2012 Failover Cluster 4
9 Refer to the Dell Compellent Microsoft MPIO Best Practices Guide for more information on configuring MPIO in Windows Server Network Configuration 3.1 Public Interface The public interface contains the IP address of the server as it would be accessed over the network. It should contain the specific subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS server addresses for accessing the network. Note: If possible, the public interface for cluster traffic should be on a dedicated NIC, separate from the NIC accessed for server management. A specific adapter can be selected for cluster traffic after a cluster has been set up. Figure 1: Network Connections 3.2 Private Interface The private interface is reserved for cluster communications and is commonly referred to as the heartbeat. In a two node cluster, a standard RJ-45 cable can be used to directly connect the first node to the second node. In a larger cluster configuration, a separate subnet or private network should be dedicated as a switch will have to be used for these cluster communications. Because cluster communications require minimal bandwidth, a 10 Mbps half-duplex connection is all that is required. It is common practice to use the 10.x.x.x network for the private interface. Below is an example of how to configure the TCP/IP settings of the private interface: January 2013 How to Setup a Microsoft Server 2012 Failover Cluster 5

11 3.3 NIC Teaming By default, the create cluster process will automatically create a public and private cluster network based upon the IP address assigned to the cluster. The NIC adapters assigned to each network are automatically assigned based upon the subnet assigned to each adapter. In cases where there are two or more adapters on each node that belong to the same subnet, the cluster will only use one of the adapters on each node to allow access from the public network. In order to use more than one adapter on the same subnet in the cluster, the adapters need to be teamed prior to cluster creation. In Windows Server 2012, NICs can be teamed via software from the NIC manufacturer (such as Intel or Broadcom), or through the built-in load balancing and failover option (LBFO) within the operating system. For more information on LBFO, please refer to Microsoft TechNet. 4 Setup and Configuration 4.1 Prerequisites The following are required to successfully configure Failover Clustering: Windows Server 2012 Standard or Datacenter Edition that is a domain member Compellent Storage Center Properly zoned Fibre or iscsi connectivity Two Ethernet ports (min. one for public and one for private connectivity) One static IP address for public network connectivity 4.2 Server Configuration Identify the server that will be the first node in the new cluster. This will be referred to as Node 1 in this document. It is required that this server is a member of a domain. To form a cluster, cluster nodes must be domain member servers. January 2013 How to Setup a Microsoft Server 2012 Failover Cluster 7
12 4.3 Installing the Failover Clustering Feature This process must be followed on each node. To install Failover Clustering: Figure 5: Server Manager Figure 6: Add Roles and Features Wizard January 2013 How to Setup a Microsoft Server 2012 Failover Cluster 8

16 5 Creating a New Cluster 5.1 Cluster Setup The Failover Cluster Management MMC is used to create failover clusters, validate hardware for potential failover clusters, and perform configuration changes to failover clusters. To create a new cluster: Figure 15: Failover Cluster Manager 3. Figure 16: Create Cluster Wizard January 2013 How to Setup a Microsoft Server 2012 Failover Cluster 12

20 Note: By enabling the Add all eligible storage to the cluster checkbox, all storage that is presented to both nodes of the cluster and formatted with NTFS will be added to the cluster available storage pool. Figure 25: Summary 5.2 Cluster Validate Historically, cluster configurations (Windows 2000 and Windows 2003) had to be certified through the Windows Hardware Quality Lab (WHQL) in order to be approved and eligible for support by Microsoft. Starting with Windows Server 2008, the Cluster Validate tool has been included with the Operating System to test the functionality and compatibility of the servers and storage involved in a cluster. This tool verifies that the storage meets the requirements (supports specific commands) to operate in a failover cluster. The end-user can run Cluster Validate and save the output as proof of supportability for the configuration. It is Dell Compellent s best practices recommendation that Cluster Validate be performed on any cluster configuration that uses Dell Compellent Storage Center to ensure the customer can receive Microsoft Premier Support should a cluster issue arise. Cluster Validate is a wizard-driven tool in Failover Cluster Manager that can be run as part of configuring a new cluster or at any time thereafter. The Cluster Validate tool assumes that the storage is attached and accessible by all nodes participating in the test. 5.3 Configure Cluster Quorum By default, in a configuration where two nodes exist, the default quorum configuration is Node Majority. Depending upon the quorum configuration, a quorum volume will have to be created and mapped to the cluster nodes. If the chosen a quorum configuration requires a disk witness, start by creating a 1GB volume on the Compellent Storage Center and mapping it to all nodes of the cluster. Once this is complete, rescan the disks on Node 1 January 2013 How to Setup a Microsoft Server 2012 Failover Cluster 16
21 using Disk Management. Initialize the LUN, create the partition and format with NTFS. Standard practice is to assign the drive letter Q: to the quorum volume. Figure 26: Disk Manager This example demonstrates how to change the cluster quorum configuration to Node and Disk Majority. To change quorum type, or modify quorum configuration settings: Figure 27: Configure Cluster Quorum Settings January 2013 How to Setup a Microsoft Server 2012 Failover Cluster 17

24 6 Adding Disks to a Cluster Adding disks to the cluster is a simple process once the new volume has been created on the Dell Compellent Storage Center and then mapped to each node of the cluster. Complete the following steps from either node to add a new disk (or disks) to the cluster: Figure 34: Disk Manager Figure 35: New disk detected January 2013 How to Setup a Microsoft Server 2012 Failover Cluster 20

29 6. Figure 49: Available Cluster Disks 7 High Availability In previous versions of Windows clustering, cluster groups contained the resource necessary to manage failover and determined how failover was handled. In Windows Server 2008/R2 failover clustering, cluster groups were referred to as Services and Applications. In Windows Server 2012, highly available services and applications are referred to as Roles. Examples of a highly available cluster role might be a file server, WINS, or a virtual machine. It should be noted that in order to add a role to the cluster, that role or feature must already be installed on each node of the cluster. For example, in order to add the File Server role to the cluster, the File Server role must be installed from the Add Roles and Features Wizard on each node of the cluster. Note: Windows Server 2012 includes many enhancements for clustering Hyper-V and virtual machines. For detailed information on how to install, configure and administer Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V clustering, please refer to the Dell Compellent Storage Center Best Practices for Hyper-V Guide on Knowledge Center. 7.1 Creating a High Availability File Server In this example, we ll use a disk that has been added to the cluster to create a highly available file server. 1.

33 7.2 Provision a Shared Folder for the File Server Provisioning of shared folders on the cluster volumes that are contained in the file server cluster is required to provide failover of these resources in the event of a node or service failure. Follow these steps to provision a shared (SMB) folder in the file server cluster: 1. In Failover Cluster Manager, expand the cluster, click on Roles, right-click on the file server, and choose Add File Share. Figure 59: Context Menu 2. The New Share Wizard appears. Select SMB Share Advanced, and click Next. Note: By choosing the Advanced option, enhanced configuration settings such as data classification and quota management are available through the new share wizard. Also note that in order to select the Advanced option, the File Server Resource Manager Role must be installed on both nodes of the cluster.
