Dear Frineds ,

I have to configure san client in Cluster enviorment ,so as per SAN Client admin guide i ran the following command .

1.   nbemmcmd –addhost –machinename virtual_name –machinetype app_cluster

2. nbemmcmd –updatehost –add_server_to_app_cluster –machinename client_name –clustername virtual_name

1st command ran sucessfully but 2nd command giving output that command didn't completed sucessfully.

Master Server is :- Windows 2008 R2 Enterprises.

FT Media is Linux

Client is AIX.

Note :- Client is not been configured as SAN client so far , like zoning and driver creation . i was running these command first but did not sucess .

Please Help

You first need to install NBU and configure SAN clients then add them in app cluster

refer this

FT services must be running on both nodes

Jack ,

NBU is installed jast it is not configured as san client , without configured as san client you can not add in emm???

if not then why it add to virtual name of cluster and not to nodes ??

if something JUST WORKED doesn't mean it should work .... there is process outlined thus need to follow steps

Its node which are actual SAN client not the virtual name... 

virtual name is to get NBU understand SAN CLIENT are actually nodes of CLUSTER hence we create app cluster and add nodes in it.

Better remove app cluster for now.. 

start from beginning and let us know if you still face the same issue.
