The following VBS operations are supported:
Start Virtual Business Services from the Veritas InfoScale Operations Manager console: When a virtual business service starts, its associated service groups are brought online.
Stop Virtual Business Services from the Veritas InfoScale Operations Manager console: When a virtual business service stops, its associated service groups are taken offline.
Applications that are under the control of ApplicationHAcan be part of a virtual business service. ApplicationHAenables starting, stopping, and monitoring of an application within a virtual machine. If applications are hosted on VMware virtual machines, you can configure the virtual machines to automatically start or stop when you start or stop the virtual business service, provided the vCenter for those virtual machines has been configured in Veritas InfoScale Operations Manager.
Define dependencies between service groups within a virtual business service: The dependencies define the order in which service groups are brought online and taken offline. Setting the correct order of service group dependency is critical to achieve business continuity and high availability. You can define the dependency types to control how a tier reacts to high availability events in the underlying tier. The configured reaction could be execution of a predefined policy or a custom script.
Manage the virtual business service from Veritas InfoScale Operations Manager or from the clusters participating in the virtual business service.
Recover the entire virtual business service to a remote site when a disaster occurs.
