VCS Simulator, which can be installed on Windows systems, enables you to view state transitions, experiment with configuration parameters, and predict how service groups might behave during cluster or system faults. Use this tool to create and save configurations in an OFFLINE state.
Through the Java Console, VCS Simulator enables you to configure a simulated cluster panel, bring a system in an unknown state into an online state, simulate power loss for running systems, simulate resource faults, and save the configuration while VCS is offline.
You can run multiple simulated clusters on a system by using different port numbers for each cluster. The Java Console provides the same views and features that are available for online configurations
