I am planning to start installing exchange 2007 server in 4 different servers. One server I am planning to install Transport Edge role, in one server to Install HUB role and in two other servers I am planning to install a Clusterd Mailbox server where I will keep the mailboxes.
In my infrastructure I have Primary Domain controller and Secondary Domain Controller installed in Windows 2008 server, and SAN 7TB for our data archiving where I am planning to dived around 1TB for mailboxes.
I would to have a best practices and maybe if somebody has a step by step installing manual for exchange 2007 server as I am planning to install.

Perfect. I have watch this video and it is very useful, but I have a question about the storage.
Do I need to map a storage dedicated for mailboxes in both Nodes or only in File Server I should map the storage?

well with CCR you will need a different dedicated storage for each node, unlike conventional Single Copy Cluster aka SCC that we used to have in Exchange 2003.

You can make use of file witeness share ( can be on a Hub transport) for CCR. I'm unsure what you mean by file server, exchange will not work if you have database on a file server, it cannot give the best throughput for the IO requirements that exchange has

During a preparatin of the nodes with failover cluster management from NodeB I can add both nodes, but from NodeA it is not possible to add NodeB because is saying "Failed to validate node EmailB.mydomain.local. An error occurred while determinin if you have administrator privileges on Emailb. Attempted to perfom an unauthorized operation"
I have loged on with my enterprise Administrator acount in both Nodes but I don't know why it is not allowing me to add the NodeB.
