We have MS SQL2000 installed on two machines that are being hardare load balanced and we want set them up as active/failover without installing windows clustering. Is it possible to configure cisco CSS hardware load balancer to start a windows service (SQLServer) on one machine if it detects the same service on another machine has failed?

Not exactly what I wanted since I only wanted the sql server to be setup as failover, not the whole machine. From more research I now know its not possible to do what I wanted.

Thanks anyway.
