This paper discusses the results of functional testing of MetroCluster in a Citrix XenServer environment. Proper operation is verified along with expected behavior during each of the test cases. Specific equipment, software, and functional failover tests are included along with results. The tests and results described in this paper complement the far more exhaustive tests performed by NetApp QA relative to the FAS deduplication technology and MetroCluster. It was determined that a basic functional reverification was necessary for these products in a Xen environment. Performance tests were beyond the scope of these scenarios.
