This issue has been solved. See solution.


    Now we have completed the 2 node for local cluster and 1 node at DR site using VVR for replication.

Our Application is SQl 2008 R2 hosted on the windows 2008 R2. Is it possible to do the virtual fire drill on the SQL environment.

Thank you.

I see in the release note

  Virtual fire drill not supported in Windows environments
The virtual fire drill feature available from the VCS command line and the Cluster
Manager (Java console) is not supported in Windows environments.

How can we test DR function witout interrupting the production.

Thank you.
