To configure a
StorageZone for high availability, connect at least two StorageZones
Controllers to it. To do that, you first install a primary StorageZones
Controller and create a zone (as described in
Install StorageZones Controller and create a StorageZone).
Then, you install StorageZones Controller on a second server and join that
controller to the same zone.
Controllers belonging to the same zone must use the same file share for
In a high
availability deployment the secondary servers are independent, fully
functioning StorageZones Controllers. The StorageZones control subsystem
randomly chooses a StorageZones Controller for operations. If the primary
server goes offline, you can easily promote a secondary server to primary. You
can also demote a server from primary to secondary.
