Pairing clusters using MVIP

You can pair two clusters for real-time replication by using the MVIP of one cluster to establish a connection with the other cluster. Cluster administrator access on both of clusters is required to use this method. The cluster administrator user name and password is used to authenticate cluster access before the clusters can be paired.

Steps

  1. On the local cluster, select Data Protection > Cluster Pairs.
  2. Click Pair Cluster.
  3. Click Start Pairing and click Yes to indicate that you have access to the remote cluster.
  4. Enter the remote cluster MVIP address.
  5. Click Complete pairing on remote cluster.
    In the Authentication Required window, enter the cluster administrator user name and password of the remote cluster.
  6. On the remote cluster, select Data Protection > Cluster Pairs.
  7. Click Pair Cluster.
  8. Click Complete Pairing.
  9. Click the Complete Pairing button.
