Drivers and Tools
A quorum service is a Windows operating system-based service deployed on a server distinct from the two servers (physical machines or PMs) running HA- or FT-protected virtual machines (VMs). Quorum servers provide data integrity assurances and automatic restart capabilities for specific failures in an everRun environment. Stratus strongly recommends using quorum servers, especially for SplitSite operation. You can configure an everRun PM pair with 0, 1, or 2 quorum servers. Refer to Quorum Servers for more information.

Quick EMUlator (QEMU) Guest Agent
Install the Quick EMUlator (QEMU) guest agent in your Windows-based guest operating system if you want to create application-consistent snapshots of your virtual machine (VM). For details refer to Installing the QEMU Guest.
Download the QEMU Guest Agent.
everRun Command Line Interface (AVCLI)
You can use the everRun command line interface to control the system from a remote console. For details, see everRun Command Line Interface Reference
Download the Windows avcli client
Download the RHEL (64 bit) avcli client
Download the Ubuntu 14.04 (64 bit) avcli client
everRun SNMP MIB
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a standard protocol for receiving alarms, sending traps, and monitoring system status. SNMP draws upon system-defining information that is stored in hierarchically configured management information bases (MIB)
The MIB is a database of objects that can be monitored by a network management system. With everRun, you will need to download the MIBs if you are running SNMP. These downloads allow your SNMP network management software to decipher SNMP alarms for everRun.
For details, see the SNMP section of the everRun documentation.

everRun VirtIO Driver Update
The VirtIO driver in version 7.4.1 has been updated (refer to the release notes for details). Stratus strongly recommends updating the VirtIO drivers on upgrade to 18.104.22.168 using the following ISOs. Refer to Updating the VirtIO Drivers (Windows-based VMs) for details.
everRun VirtIO Driver for Avance or everRun MX VM migration
For Windows-based VMs, you must install VirtIO drivers in the guest operating system before exporting the VM from an Avance or everRun MX system. If you do not install the VirtIO drivers, the imported VM crashes while booting on the everRun system. For details, see Creating and Migrating Virtual Machines. After migration is completed we recommend that you update to the latest VirtIO drivers provided above.
everRun P2V Client for Virtual or Physical Machine Migration
To migrate a PM or VM directly over a network to an everRun system with no intervening storage, boot the P2V client (virt-p2v) on the source PM or VM and use the client to configure, initiate, and monitor the secure network transfer from the source side. The everRun system requires no configuration until after the migration is complete, but you can confirm that the migration is in progress on the Volumes page of the everRun Availability Console as volumes associated with the new VM begin to appear. For details, see Creating and Migrating Virtual Machines.
