i over the last few hours I have setup Hyper V replication at one of my primary's using there old server as a DR server
our core VS (8-core intel Xeon, 24 GB ram) is in KS2
the backup (replica) server (2x Intel Xeon processors, 8GB RAM) is in KS1 down the other end of the school
i have now got them successfully replicating via certificate
I have done test failovers on a test vm and it has worked perfectly
but, when I do a planned failover when it gets to reversing replication direction it just hangs....and hangs.....and hangs. In the end I have just given up on it after an hour of waiting, any idea. I have looked around and it should be pretty instant. The VM's is tiny I'm testing on just 8GB.
In addition to this, I would like to here from people who are also using hyper v replication at primary and secondary level. I am planning to do replication on our DC and SIMS VM's, will there be any issues with the sims replication due to SQL??
Hi, sometimes my system gets stuck if I don't run gpupdate /force on both machines, no idea why this is the case. The other things to check is that the storage space has been configured correctly for where the replication harddrives are to be stored. this will usually be different then the usual hyper-v drives are stored.
