Hi @all,

 

maybe this is a very easy question, but I didn’t found the solution for it.

It’s about Windows Clients (File System) and Windows Cluster (File System).

In the CommCell console from a cluster perspective, it is very easy to find out, which servers belong to it (right-click on “Properties” → “Advanced” → check tab “Cluster Group Configuration”).

 

But what is the procedere to find out, if a specific client is member of any cluster?

 

Many thanks in advance!

Hi @JanR ,

You can check Failover Cluster Manager and check the Commvault Plugin and the Nodes.

Also, in Command Center and File Servers, you should see Access Node of, with the name of the Cluster Client.

 

https://documentation.commvault.com/11.21/expert/130423_changes_in_user_interface_in_feature_release_1121.html

  1. In the Command Center, under Manage > Servers > Server details page, on the Configuration tab, "Member node" was renamed to "Access node of".

Best Regards,

Sebastien

Thx Sebastien,

 

so in the CommCell Console, there is no possibility to check it, right?

@JanR

I ran a Commcell Configuration Report with Client Properties and the two Clients (Cluster Nodes) under Computers:

 

From the Report I found the name of the Cluster XXXXXXXX under PseudoClients:

 PseudoClients
                                                         ID : xxxxx
                                                         Name :xxxxxxxx

 

Can you run a Report and validate this?

Best Regards,

Hello Sebastien,

thank you so much for your replies.
Meanwhile I can confirm, that the report of the client properties provides the “PseudoClients” field with the correct link to the cluster.

Many Thx!
