Check out "Distributed Availability Services" in the upcoming ESX3.  (It's still in beta)

I'm looking for something for production, I cant use beta software.  I heard of people writing scripts, etc. to automate this.

I think the msdn blog is for Virtual PC.  I need something for VMware ESX server.  I'm not a scriptor so I am looking for something pretty much complete.
