Hello,
we use this great program on two DELL servers, so far without error - but now I would like to ask for help on a technical issue.
We need to move both servers to another server room at the same time, plus we would expand the memory.
I did not find any info about this in the documentation or in the forum.
Can somebody tell me what is the recommended procedure for a complete shutdown?
If I turn off HA and then shut down, when restart the system I need to make restore from the last snapshot because the VMs are compromited.

Could you provide some guidance please?

If you are completely shutting down both servers, I don't understand your concern about data being compromised.

For a compete shutdown, perform the following steps.

1) Disable HA - this can be executed on either of the 2 hosts.
ha-cfg ha-disable

2) Verify HA is disabled
ha-cfg status

3) shutdown all your VMs as usual

4 ) Shutdown the Slave host and then the Master (in this order)

5) Upgrade your hosts and move them.

6) Start the Master host - wait for it to fully boot and then start the slave host

7) Verify replication is working and synchronized
iscsi-cfg status

8 ) Start your VMs

9) Re-enable HA
ha-cfg ha-enable

Dear Salvatore,
Thank You for the instuctions.
Maybe the problem was I turned on both server at one time , and start the VMs immediately.

I will try this way - thank You again.

Robert
