Hi

i would like to know when SQL 2012 will be supported with HA Console wizard.

we need to implement VCS SQL 2012 in a VMware environment so we can use VCS with VMotion, DRS, etc...

i know that i can configure VCS Cluster manually without a wizard but this require highly knowledge of the VCS and a hight level overview of the process, so currently this is not an option

 

 

thanks!

Hello,

MS-SQL 2012 is supported in SFWHA 6.02.

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH201485

You may need to upgrade your console to 6.02 in order to configure MS-SQL 2012.  Download the updated software using your serial number at https://fileconnect.symantec.com.

Hi Douglas

 

i have installed the latest HA Console with no luck... only SQL 2008 can be configured with the wizard from the console.

 

thanks!

Hi!

SQL2012 support in the HA console is added through the AppHA Agent Pack.  You can download this from https://sort.symantec.com/agents/download_pack_os/windows.

Once downloaded, extract and browse to \windows\win\application_ha\6.0 and review the readme to see if this is what you are after.

Thanks,

Dan

The HA console for vCenter now covers both VCS and ApplicationHA. One management plug-in for both products.
