High Availability using service profiles


I have a doubt about High Availability using blade servers. In this case I have three server B200 , but in production are two, the third one is a spare , this blade will be in production if anyone of previous servers is fall down for any reason.

Is there a configuration in service profiles to do this?

Or , How I can do High Availability  in automatically way, without administrator intervention , or a task ??

Best regards

Not natively possible.  This is because of the question - "how do you detect a server is down?"  No network, no SAN, unresponsive etc.

There are many 3rd party management applications that can do this along with the XML API.  When the management server detects a server is down, it can send an XML request to re-associate a profile to a new blade.

Unfortunately this is the only method currently.


Hi Robert

Thanks for our anwer, Can you tell me the name of this software to program high availability ??
