Hello and how is it? I am looking into clustering two Windows 2003 servers and had probably a bone head question. However, can the server have different processors, rams, and hard drive space, but just make sure the OS versions are the same? Thanks

Yes you can do this, but it's not recommended.  Generally you want matched hardware just for the fact that if it fails to the 2nd node the node has enough horsepower to handle the load.  Also you don't want to have to mess around with driver issues.

We done this in three node clusters.  The first two nodes were on HP hardware and the 3rd was on Dell.  It worked fine.
