Intel Modular Server – A Hyper-V Failover Cluster Is Born

Well, we now have a failover cluster running on our Intel Modular Server as of late last night:


This morning will be spent running through creating a high availability VM and running some failover tests.

Not too much time will be spent on that as the entire setup, both the Intel Modular Server and the 1U SR1630HGP management server will be flattened in order to start a second test run.

The second run will give us the ability to lay out our steps in a much more logical order along with evaluating how we are going to set things up differently this time.

We are going to try and get three test runs in before needing to put the actual production setup together.

So far, so good! :)
