And now a question about the Listener... I need an IP address and a Network name, I'm assuming this is a DNS record of A Name type? Or do I need to get a C Name record for the network name?
If I'm reading this correctly, an AG with 3 secondary replicas only needs 1 IP / Network name, not an IP for each replica... Yes / No / Maybe?
EDIT: Except looking at George's comments, maybe I need two IPs / Network names? I have a 4 node cluster, two nodes on Data Center A and two nodes on Data Center B. DC-A will have synchronous replicas between them and then both asynch to DC-B. Both DCs are on different subnets.
I just want to be sure I understand this before I order these items from our DNS admin.
BTW, beautifully written articles, Perry. Very detailed.
