A couple questions about windows/sql clustering.

I currently have two dl380 G5 connected to a disk array, both g5 have enterprise edition (server) installed, i am trying to configure windows clustering, so i then can set up a sql cluster. When going through the wizard i am asked for a domain, does it have to be a functional domain, i currently have them in workgroups, and i would like to keep them that way, is the domain a real requirment, or will it work without it?

The domain is actually a name for the cluster not a functional Domain as in Active Directory.

Well if you do not have a domain setup when you are starting your configuration, the setup will return errors and ask you to locate a domain controller.
