Setting up OCS 2007 in windows 2003 clustered environment RRS feed

  • Question


    HI All,


    Can anyone tell me whether OCS 2007 front-end can be setup in the windows 2003 Cluster environment?

    Or is OCS 2007 is a cluster aware application.



    Thanks in advance for the answer.

  • I don't think this is a supported MS Cluster app. 

    If you want HA, you need a load balancer and at least 2 servers.

  • I'd second that; OCS works on a Pool/Farm basis for increased capacitty of availability, Clustering is not an option.


    There are some very good value Load Balancers available; the most import things to watch for are Source NAT and Appropriate throughput; which could be quite high for any enterprise setup requiring More than one server for capacity.


    If Your goal is resilience, look into increasing hardware resilience or using a redundant server chassis.
