SharePoint High Availability Topology

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hi,

We are planning high availabliglty for sharepoint and hae come up with following topology;

1) 4 FE Web Servers (Web + Application Services) - NLB for load balancing.

2) 2 Backend Servers to store SharePoint DB and Report Server D.

3) Mirrirong between the 2 Backend server and witness on another server.

4) I am not sure whether to put SSRS ReportServer Instance on the Web FE boxes or 2 BE Server. If i put SSRS Report Server on 2 BE servers then i have to configure NLB on the BE boxes. Will there be any issues if mirroring and NLB is configured on the same machine.

Your input will be really helpful.

Thanks


Amit

High Availability: Keep Your Code Running with the Reliability Features of the .NET Framework

  

Reliability requires the capacity to execute a sequence of operations in a deterministic way, even under exceptional conditions. This allows you to ensure that resources are not leaked and that you can maintain state consistency without relying on application domain unloading (or worse, process restarts) to fix any corrupted state. Unfortunately, in the.NET Framework, not all exceptions are deterministic and synchronous, which makes it difficult to write code that is always deterministic in its ability to execute a predetermined sequence of operations. In this article Stephen Toub will show you why, and explore features of the .NET Framework 2.0 that help you to mitigate these situations and write more reliable code.

query w.r.t to SharePoint 2010 Performance Planning & Extranet Topology

  
  1.      Which extranet topology to go with in case of exposing Intranet to Remote Employees / Partners ?   My understanding:   There are 3 extranet topologies : Edge Firewall , Back to Back , Split back to back   If Scenario is : a)      Only Employees needs to access Intranet from Home ,we can go for Edge Firewall b)      If partners & Employees , both needs to access Intranet ( it will have some partner sites ) , then we can go for Back to Back OR Split back to back .   Questions: ·         Is Understanding correct ? ·         Is there any factor which can help in making a decision between Back to Back Or Split back to back ?   2.      As part of sizing , I read that we should capture following information -          What should be maximum acceptable CPU utilization in production servers ? ( Example : 70%) -          What will be the concurrent number of users accessing portal during peak hour of a day ? ( Example 1000 users from total of 18000 users ) -          How many request per second are done to portal

Which high availability strategy for multi tenant architecture

  
Hi, I run a multi-tenant application : each client runs the same code but each one hase its own database for personnal parameters and data, that makes about 40-50 databases and growing (i hope so) I want to set up a high availability strategy, for that, I have two VMs each one running SQL Server 2008 Entreprise. I had started to configure log shipping, but I was told that it was not a good idea when there are many dbs involved. How can I choose between HA strategies ? What tests do I have to do to see if i'm still elligible so log shipping (number of transactions per hour ?) If log shipping is not an option, what should I choose ? Failover cluster ? Thanks ! Don't hesitate to ask if you need more information.

    WCF service with WAS and High Availability Cluster on Server 2008

      

    I have a WCF service using one-way net.msmq transport to deliver messages to a high availability cluster.

    I have followed a few articles I have found on setting up WCF in a cluster environment and essnetially have the following queues

     

    Cluster: private$\MI/ManagementInformationService.svc

    Node A: private$\MI/ManagementInformationService.svc

    Node B: private$\MI/ManagementInformationService.svc

    Although I am not sure why I need the local queues.

    I've installed the WCF application into IIS7 on Node A and Node B. I;ve configured both nodes to the following address:

    address="net.msmq://{cluster endpoint}/private/MI/ManagementInformationService.svc"

    So, I configure my Web Servers to deliver the MI to the clustered endpoing via WCF net.msmq binding.

    At this point, everything works and as messages hit the clustered queue, they are picked up by one of the nodes and processed. However, when I fail over the cluster, the second node does not automatically spring into life, as I would expect it to with WAS. However, if I browse the WSDL for my service on the now-current node, then it does indeed spring into life and process the messages off the queue.

    So I turn on WCF tracing, IISReset fire up the WSDL, IISReset (to flush the WCF Trace log) then see the following:

    SQL 2008 - High Availability Function

      

    Hi All. I would like to calrify on a certain aspect of SQL 2008 HA, this situation is as follows. For SQL HA we need 2 server and a share storage, now assuming all the pre-requsites are set down in place virtual IP, virtual hostname etc.. Let's say only the first hardware is shipped and the 2nd hardware comes in only 2 months laters. Can I run the whole SQL cluster of the 1st node and upon the 2nd hardware arrival I would join the 2nd node to it. This would eliminate the entire re-setup of SQL cluster. But the question here is , would the cluster function in a single node envrionment for the first 2 months, before the 2nd node comes in or is it mandatory for the 2nd node to be installed when setting up cluster in-order for the whole setup to be functional?

    Hi guys
    Please need your inputs and suggestions. I have always worked as junior DBA and have setup the HA but never planned for it. Please need some support here.

    We have one main application: Application1 ...which is the sending data to all other application for billing, reporting, processing the orders and other stuff. This application is working right now on two Server.

    SQL Server Peer to Peer Replication and High Availability

      
    I am looking at peer to peer replication to replace our current mirroring solution.  ADO.Net has the partner server which works great when detecting the failover to the mirror.  Will that workin a peer to peer configuration as well?

    Is a 3 Node Cluster the way to go for a high availability environment?

      

    Good Morning,

    My company currently has a 2 Node SQL 2008 Active / Passive cluster. Due to the sensitivity and ugency of our industry, we have to maintain a 100% uptime for our clients. The issue here is that we cannot do any maintenance that involves failovering the cluster (patching, SPs, etc), because of the time it takes to failover (even a few seconds is critical).

    We are considering going to a 3 Node Active / Active / Passive cluster, with the theory that since one Node will always be active, we can failover to the passive Node without any disruption. However, we're not sure if this would be the case, and if it isn't, would there be something we can do instead to keep uptime at 100% w/o the risk of our environments being outdated?

    Thank you all in advance,

    Nick Gargano, Sr. DBA


    Changing the graphics on the home page of a SharePoint site

      
    When you create a site in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services by using the default Team Site template, the home page includes two default graphics. A Windows SharePoint Services graphic appears in the body of the page, and a picture of a house in a circle appears near the site title. You can change these graphics to customize your site. Changing the smaller graphic requires a Windows SharePoint Services compatible Web page editor

    Displaying SharePoint lists in Web Parts

      
    When you create a built-in or custom list in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, Windows SharePoint Services creates a Web Part, a basic building block of a SharePoint site, to display that list. These Web Parts are called List View Web Parts. Windows SharePoint Services stores List View Web Parts in the site collection Web Part gallery. (The site collection Web Part gallery is the most central gallery of Web Parts for a work group. By default, the gallery name is the name of the site, such as "Our Team Site Web Part Gallery." )

    Take a tour of your SharePoint site

      
    What is a SharePoint site for?
    A SharePoint site is a Web site that provides a central storage and collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas. A SharePoint site is a tool for collaboration, just like a telephone is a tool for communication, or a meeting is a tool for decision making. A SharePoint site helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share information and work together. For example, a SharePoint site can help you:

    Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.
    Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.
    Share information and keep in touch with other people.

    Six easy ways to customize your site using Web Parts in SharePoint

      
    Becoming familiar with Web Part customization techniques gives you a range of page-customization choices. For example, you can customize your site's home page so that it displays the specific information that your team needs. You can rearrange the list items on the home page, add lists, and even change the images on the home page. As you become more familiar with Web Part Page customization techniques, you can build interactive Web Part Pages that makes the data in lists more dynamic and useful, and you can add new Web Parts that provide access to external data and Web services.
