Clustering the Siebel File System with MSCS

To cluster the Siebel File System, follow the steps below.

To cluster the Siebel File System

  1. Using Cluster Administrator, bring the group that the Siebel File System will belong to on line on one of the nodes.
  2. Using Windows Explorer, navigate to that node and create the Siebel File System directory on the shared disk resource of that group.
  3. Using Cluster Administrator, create the Siebel File System resource in the group on the same node:
    1. In the New Resource dialog box, specify the following values:
      • Name and Description
      • Resource type—select File Share
    2. Click Next.
    3. In the Possible Owners dialog box, make sure that both cluster nodes are listed as Possible Owners, and click Next.
    4. In the Dependencies dialog box, list the Physical Disk, IP Address, and Network Name resources as resource dependencies, and click Next.
    5. In the File Share Parameters dialog box, type the UNC share name for the Siebel File System. (This is the share name by which the File System will be accessed.)
    6. For Path, specify the full path to the File System directory you created in Step 2, including the drive letter.

    7. Click Permissions to grant the necessary privileges on this share.
    8. Click Finish to create the Resource, and then bring it on line.
