2 Executive summary Hyper-V is a Microsoft hypervisor-based server virtualization product for 64-bit Microsoft Windows Server Hyper-V helps IT customers consolidate servers, improve server utilization, reduce energy consumption and lower total cost of ownership (TCO). In a Hyper-V based infrastructure, virtual machines (VMs) are running on top of the physical host server. The physical host server could be a single point of failure if it loses power or has a hardware failure. With a host server failure, all VMs running on the host server will be out of service. To solve this problem, it is possible to create a simple failover cluster with two cluster nodes and one witness disk. In a step-by-step approach, this document describes how to use Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Failover Clustering feature, in conjunction with HP BladeSystem c-class ProLiant server blades and an HP StorageWorks All-in-One SB600c (SB600c) storage blade, to provide high availability to the Hyper-V host servers or parent partitions. Details on how to install Windows Server 2008 and Hyper-V on HP ProLiant servers can be found in the HP documents Implementing Microsoft Windows Server 2008 on HP ProLiant servers and Implementing Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V on HP ProLiant servers at and mpid=reg_r1002_usen. Target audience: The intended audience for this document includes, but is not limited to, solutions architects, technical consultants and readers who are interested in obtaining information on Windows Server 2008 and are interested in Hyper-V and Windows Failover Clustering. The document is also intended for users needing a quick guide to installing Failover Clustering for Hyper-V host on server blades with an SB600c storage blade. System requirements Hardware requirements The hardware infrastructure is based on HP ProLiant c-class server blades and an HP StorageWorks All-in-One SB600c storage blade. Two ProLiant BL465c G5 server blades with identical hardware configurations are deployed as cluster nodes. Customers can create a similar cluster on ProLiant BL260c G5, BL460c, BL465c G5, BL480c, BL495c G5, BL680c G5 or BL685c G5 server blades as well. The recommended server configuration is dual quad-core processors or greater with a minimum of 8GB memory (recommended 12 GB memory) and at least 70GB disk space. The SB600c storage blade is an in-the-enclosure storage solution that provides iscsi shared storage service over IP networks. HP BladeSystem c-class c3000 or c7000 enclosure Note Microsoft Hyper-V and Windows Failover Clustering are not limited to c-class server blades. ProLiant servers with x64 Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) or AMD Virtualization (AMD-V ) hardware-assisted virtualization also support Hyper-V and Failover Clustering. 2

3 Software requirements Server blades in the test environment have the following software installed: Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Enterprise or Datacenter (x64) Only Windows Server 2008 Enterprise and Datacenter (both 32-bit and 64-bit) support the Windows Failover Clustering feature. Windows Server 2008 Enterprise or Datacenter (x64) cluster supports up to the 16 cluster nodes with Fibre Channel, iscsi or SAS shared storage disk configurations. Hyper-V Update for Windows Server 2008 x64 Edition (KB950050). This update can be found at BADED34D24ED&displaylang=en. Hyper-V requires 64-bit Windows Server HP BladeSystem Firmware Deployment Tool v1.30 or later CD-ROM. This firmware CD-ROM can be found at prodtypeid= &prodseriesid= &prodnameid= &swenvoid=4024&swla ng=8&mode=2&taskid=135&switem=mtx a e5423 HP SmartStart CD x64 version This CD-ROM can be found at prodtypeid= &prodseriesid= &prodnameid= &swenvoid=4024&swla ng=8&mode=2&taskid=135&switem=mtx-a12b434edd8941f58e4e608c94 HP ProLiant Support Pack for Windows Server 2008 x64 Editions version 8.11 (A). This support pack can be found at prodtypeid= &prodseriesid= &prodnameid= &swenvoid=4024&swla ng=8&mode=2&taskid=135&switem=mtx-60db08ae0a914c359406c839e8 Hyper-V hosts cluster configuration process overview Windows Server 2008 Failover Clustering provides high availability for the Hyper-V hosts. The enhanced Windows Failover Clustering has four possible configurations: Node Majority, Node and Disk Majority, Node and File Share Majority, and No Majority (Disk Only). In the following sections, a two-node host server cluster (even number of nodes) is created using a StorageWorks SB600c iscsi shared storage disk as the witness disk. The witness disk stores cluster configuration information only. Node and Disk Majority is selected for this cluster quorum configuration and can sustain failure of one node with the witness disk online. This cluster is based on an active-passive configuration where one server node is an active node hosting VMs, and the other node is a passive node. All VM configuration files and virtual hard disks (VHD) are stored on the second shared storage disk owned by an active cluster node, in addition to the witness disk. If the active server node fails due to hardware or software failure, the passive node takes over the cluster and controls the cluster resources such as the shared disks and applications. The passive server node becomes the active server node and automatically brings VMs online (See Figure 1). In this cluster configuration, iscsi protocol is used by the StorageWorks SB600c storage device to send and receive SCSI commands through the IP network with Windows disk management technology (iscsi Target) to provide iscsi shared storage service to the iscsi Initiator. Note In the above configuration, multiple HP GbE2c Ethernet switches are dedicated to different network traffic to improve the Hyper-V cluster performance (see Figure 1). Also, the shared storage disks in the above configuration could potentially be single points of failure. 3

4 Figure 1. Hyper-V Host Failover Clustering The following sections provide detailed installation and configuration steps: Step 1: Configure iscsi disks and iscsi Target on SB600c. Step 2: Install Windows Server 2008 and HP ProLiant supporting software on BladeSystem server blades. Step 3: Configure ProLiant ROM BIOS and install Hyper-V server role. Step 4: Configure iscsi Initiator and connect to iscsi LUN disk on server blades. Step 5: Install and configure Windows Failover Clustering feature. Step 6: Configure iscsi disk on SB600c for VM storage and add disk to the cluster. Step 7: Create and add VM to the cluster. Note This document shows details for Steps 1, 4, 5, 6 and 7. 4

5 Step 1: Configure iscsi disks and iscsi Target on SB600c Before installing Windows Failover Clustering, you need to create the iscsi shared storage disks and make them available to the server blades. The two server blades are cluster nodes described later in this document. In this configuration, you need two disks shared between these two server blades: one is the witness disk or quorum disk, and the other is the disk that stores all VM configuration files and VHD files. The quorum disk keeps only cluster configuration information and can not be used to store other information such as VHD files. In cluster Node and Disk Majority configuration, both cluster host server nodes (server blades) and the quorum disk get a vote. In step 1, you only make the quorum disk available to the server blades, so the cluster installation locates the correct quorum disk. You will add the shared VM storage disk in a later step. On SB600c, launch HP All-in-One Storage System Management console. In the left panel, click Storage Management, and in the middle panel, click Microsoft iscsi Target. Figure 2. Launch Microsoft iscsi Target on SB600c 5

6 Create virtual disks In the iscsi Target console left panel, right click Devices, and click Create Virtual Disk to launch the Create Virtual Disk Wizard. Click the Next> button to continue. Figure 3. Create virtual disk 6

7 On the StorageWorks SB600c storage device, each iscsi virtual disk is a virtual disk file (VHD). Give a VHD file name and specify which folder will hold this VHD file on the SB600c drives. In this case, you create a virtual disk that stores all VM configuration and VHD files, enter E:\V-Cluster.vhd, and click the Next> button to continue. Figure 4. Create a new virtual disk file. 7

8 Enter the virtual disk size and click the Next> button to continue. Figure 5. Enter the virtual disk size 8

9 Enter the virtual disk description, and click the Next> button. On the next Access (add iscsi Target) page, click the Next> button again to skip. Then click the Finish button to complete. Figure 6. Enter the virtual disk description 9

10 The iscsi Target right panel shows the newly created virtual disk without being accessed by any iscsi Target. Figure 7. Virtual disk for VM storage 10

11 Repeat the above steps to create a 500MB quorum disk for the cluster. The virtual disk file name is E:\V-Cluster-Quorum.vhd, and the virtual disk description is For Hyper-V Failover Clustering Quorum Disk. Figure 8. Virtual disk for cluster quorum disk 11

12 Create iscsi Target In order for server blades to connect to these iscsi disks, you need to create an iscsi Target to associate with these disks. In the iscsi Target console left panel, right click iscsi Targets, click Create iscsi Target to launch the Create iscsi Target Wizard. Click the Next> button to continue. Figure 9. Create iscsi Target 12

13 Specify the iscsi Target name V-Cluster-Target and description Hyper-V Failover Cluster iscsi Target and click the Next> button to continue. Figure 10. Specify iscsi Target name and description 13

Add Hyper-V virtual disk to the iscsi Target Step 2: Install Windows Server 2008 and HP ProLiant supporting software on BladeSystem server blades To install Windows Server 2008 on the two server blades, HP recommends the following procedures: Run HP BladeSystem Firmware Deployment Tool v1.30 or later CD-ROM to update server blade firmware first. Run HP SmartStart CD x64 version 8.10 to configure server blade hardware configuration. Install Windows Server 2008 Enterprise or Datacenter (x64) 64-bit edition. Run HP ProLiant Support Pack for Windows Server 2008 x64 Editions version 8.11 (A) to install the latest drivers. After installing Windows, join the two server blades to the domain. Details on how to install Windows Server 2008 can be found in the HP document Implementing Microsoft Windows Server 2008 on HP ProLiant servers at 21

22 Step 3: Configure ProLiant ROM BIOS and install Hyper-V server role To install Hyper-V, HP recommends the following procedures: On both server blades, enable server blade hardware-assisted virtualization. For details, see the Enable support for hardware-assisted virtualization in the RBSU section in the HP document Implementing Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V on HP ProLiant servers. This document can be found at umpid=reg_r1002_usen On both server blades, apply Hyper-V Update for Windows Server 2008 x64 Edition (KB950050) by running Microsoft Windows Update (see Figure 19). This update can also be found at BADED34D24ED&displaylang=en On both server blades, launch Server Manager, and install Hyper-V server role Figure 19. Install Hyper-V Update 22

23 Step 4: Configure iscsi Initiator and connect to iscsi LUN disk on server blades Before creating the Windows Failover Clustering, the server blades need to connect to the iscsi Target through iscsi Initiator and access the shared quorum disk. This quorum disk will store all cluster information and is a cluster witness disk. Configure iscsi Initiator On both server blades, click Start. Click Administrative Tools and select iscsi Initiator. If Microsoft iscsi service is not running on the server blade, click the Yes button to start the service and set the service to start automatically. This service is required by the iscsi Initiator. Click the Yes button to unblock the iscsi service through Windows Firewall and launch iscsi Initiator Property. Figure 20. Launch iscsi Initiator 23
