    VCSA HA Deployment: Different Sites

    Dryv Enthusiast

      Hi Guys,

       

      I wanted to understand if its possible to deploy VCSA in HA deployment across 3 different sites using different IP Subnets, but all can route to each other, as follows:

       

      VCSA-Active

      Mgmt IP: a.a.a.a

      HA IP: x.x.x.x

       

      VCSA-Passive

      Mgmt IP: b.b.b.b

      HA IP: y.y.y.y

       

      Witness

      Mgmt IP: c.c.c.c

      HA IP: z.z.z.z

       

      If the above is possible then:

       

      - When a failover happens from Active to Passive, do clients stop using IP a.a.a.a and start using IP b.b.b.b to reach vCenter services? Or would I need to manually make a change in DNS to point the VCSA FQDN from a.a.a.a to b.b.b.b and get that refreshed out across my network?

      - Is there a guide that explains how to set it up this way?

       

      As usual, thanks
