This guide provides information about configuring IRIS FailSafe systems with the IRIS FailSafe Data Migration Facility (DMF) option. This option enables DMF and its resources to be failed over from one node to another when a FailSafe fail over occurs. This guide is intended as a supplement to information about configuring IRIS FailSafe included in the IRIS FailSafe Administrator's Guide.
This guide was prepared in conjunction with the initial release of the IRIS FailSafe DMF option and release 1.2 of the IRIS FailSafe software product. It describes IRIS FailSafe DMF software for DMF release 2.6.1 and higher.
This guide is written for system administrators who are responsible for configuring and administering an IRIS FailSafe system with the optional IRIS FailSafe DMF software. These system administrators must be able to customize several shell scripts and should be familiar with DMF configuration and DMF startup and shutdown procedures.
For DMF installation information, see the Cray DMF Administrator's Guide for IRIX Systems.
