I have been asked to setup a Single Node Cluster. What? Yes. A single node cluster...please help.
I have been asked to build a server as a Single Node Cluster.
I have found cluadmin, and have found the option, create new cluster. Options I have are
Cluster's Domain Name: xxxxxxxxxxx
Cluster Name, Unique in the Domain: FFSQL10
First Computer: EFXIXSQL10
IP Address: xxxxxxxxxxx
Domain User Account, Cluster Service Account: xxxxxx\xxxxxxxxx
However, at the end of the wizard the following error/warnings are occuring.
--Comparing the networks in the cluster with the networks on the nodes...
--Checking that all nodes have access to the quorum resource...
>>>>>>Could not locate a sharable quorum resource and a local quorum cluster will be created
>>>>>>Status 0x0713de, The quorum disk could not be located by the cluster service.
What is a quorum resource? What is a cluster service? What is the point of a single node cluster as opposed to a two mode, active/passive or active/active node cluster?
Anybody can help, please do...I am confused.
Shall I proceed even though Status 0x0713de is displayed.
