BO Clustering and HA Architecture


We are working to add clustering and HA of Business Objects XI 3.1 with SP3 at the same time, the Production server on Windows Platform 2008 and using Oracle 10g R2 for CMS in a separate database server. we prepared another CMS node with the same platforms. additionally we are using load balances hardware.

The issue while moving filestore to IBM SAN, as you know the SAN storage couldn't manage the files to be automatically shared between two servers as NFS do.

We suggest to add another server which will be used to mount the drive on the SAN storage and the two CMS servers will share it by NFS but this scenario in addition to a new server required will not serve HA scenario.

should we use a third party or we have to reconfigure the OS to be clustering. please advice for the best scenario.

Thank you in advance.

      The files that created by node1 are not visible by node2 unless reboot node2 it will see the files which could affect disappearing some objects from the filestore.

      I'm not expert on Hardware mechanisms but as I understood that the SAN Storage does not work as sharable drive as of NAS and NFS. please advice.
