    Do you have a cluster in place now? All you need to do is create a VM the way you would normally but you would do it on a host sitting in the cluster. Just make sure you have the same shared storage attached to all the hosts in the cluster and make sure the networking portion is spelled exactly the same as well (case sensitive).

    hope that helps

    I'm not sure I understand your question, but all host in your cluster should be able to read/write to the same storage for HA to work properly.
