In the following scenario, eight systems reside in four clusters. Each tier contains a global cluster. The global local service group in the top tier depends on the global remote service group in the bottom tier.
The following main.cf files show this multi-tiered environment. The FileOnOff resource is used to test the dependencies between layers. Note that some attributes have been edited for clarity, and that these clusters are not running in secure mode.
A VCS two-tiered globally clustered scenario shows the scenario for testing.
