We have a Linux SUSE server which runs a Windows 2003 SBS virtual machine.  Since Microsoft doesn't support clustering SBS or VMs, can I somehow set up a cluster using Linux HA?

Thanks,

Theo

This question has been asked an answered before.
I quote:
"You can't cluster SBS server. You need Server 2003 Enterprise edition to support clustering + the enterprise editions of all the server applications such as Exchange, SQL Etc."
and
"I would suggest you explore server mirroring.

Otherwise, what services need to be redundant?  You can add a second DC.  A Windows cluster using Enterprise Edition of products as mentioned by KCTS, using the SBS system as merely a front end."

Let me know if this helps. :)
