VCS Simulator enables you to simulate and test cluster configurations. Use VCS Simulator to view and modify service group and resource configurations and test failover behavior. VCS Simulator can be run on a stand-alone system and does not require any additional hardware.
You can test configurations from different operating systems using VCS Simulator. For example, you can run VCS Simulator on a Windows system and test VCS configurations for Windows, Linux, and Solaris clusters. VCS Simulator also enables creating and testing global clusters.
