Installing Clustering Service Without a Domain
Posted on 2008-06-19
I have to configure a Windows Cluster (for a SQL Server DB) before a site-to-site tunnel has been configured between a new data center and our existing data center. I am not sure though if its possible to configure clustering services without access to our domain controller. My question is (1) if it's possible to install clustering services without a domain (2) if that is possible how to do it. I could potentially install a temporary cluster on a VM and then migrate the cluster to the true domain controller when it's ready, but I'm not sure how to migrate the cluster to the new domain once it is accessible, so my last question is (3) how to migrate a cluster from one domain controller to another.
