Enterprise Vault in an active/passive failover pair configuration

In this example:

  • NODEA and NODEB are the two Enterprise Vault nodes in the failover cluster. NODEA is the primary node. NODEB is the failover node.

  • The SQL server and Microsoft Exchange may also be configured in the cluster: this does not affect Enterprise Vault.

  • The volumes for the Enterprise Vault services data are configured on shared storage.

  • The Enterprise Vault cluster server is configured on the primary node, NODEA. If NODEA fails, the cluster server's resources fail over to NODEB, and the cluster server comes online on NODEB.
