Before running the Fire Drill Wizard make sure that you meet the following general requirements:
You can run the Fire Drill Wizard from any node in the domain of the cluster, as long as the SFW HA client is installed on that node.
If the cluster is secured, the login you use to run the Fire Drill Wizard must have the appropriate permissions to make changes in the cluster.
If a firewall exists between the wizard and any systems it needs access to, the firewall must be set to allow both ingoing and outgoing TCP requests on port 7419.
For an application service group using IPv4 addresses, for each IP address in the service group, an IP address must be available to use on the secondary site for the fire drill service group.
To configure IPv6 settings, the wizard must be launched from a system on which the IPv6 stack is installed. The wizard can accept input for one IP address and Lanman resource. If the application service group has multiple IP addresses and Lanman resources, the wizard notifies you to edit the fire drill service group resources to supply these values. More information on editing service group resources is available.
See the Cluster Server Administrator's Guide.
For IPv6, the IP address will be autogenerated.
If you want the fire drill wizard to run a script that you supply, ensure that the script file is available on any secondary site nodes where you plan to run the fire drill.
Additional requirements apply to specific replication environments.
