HA for DFM 4.0 with vSphere HA?

Currently Being Moderated

IHAC who needs to have a highly available install of DFM to manage data protection in a managed-hosting environment.  They've read TR- 3767: High-Availability for DataFabric Manager Server. They're asking if it wouldn't be easier to just run DFM in a vSphere virtual machine with vSphere HA enabled. They would gain benefits similar to host-based clustering, but without requiring two hosts or clustering software licenses.  In addition, this would theoretically buy them VMotion and DRS capabilities.

 

Q1) Is there any reason vSphere HA wouldn't work as a viable HA solution for DFM 4.0?

 

Q2) Would NetApp support this configuration?  Would it even matter?  To the DFM server - and to NetApp - it would appear as a single-server install of DFM.
