UNity Failover Server Name Unique 14 Characters

Unanswered Question
Sep 26th, 2008

Quick Question:

For the Unity failover server name restriction to have the first 14 characters unique, do I only need to make sure the character at position X is unique?

Server Name 1: 123456789

Server Name2: 0123456789

Will this work? Or do I have to really make the characters within the first 14 exclusively unique?

This is an interesting question. I am not familiar with this restriction. I have a failover cluster right now with one server named UNITY-BU and another named UNITY-PRI. I'll be interested to hear what you find out.

This will work because these are unique within the first 14 characters. The following would not work:

Server 1 - thisisservername1

Server 2 - thisisservername2

The names are unique, but not within the first 14 characters.

This requirement is indicated in the following link.


Hope this helps.
