Hi All,

I am planning to setup 2 node hyper-v cluster on Windows 2008 R2.

I already got 1 server :

HP DL380 G6 with singlle Xeon L5540 2.53GHZ and 32GB of RAM - good enough for 8 VM's - running locally for now nut need to move it on to SAN

Planning to get exacly the same second one but just checked on Microsoft HCL list and this model is not listed on it. Does this definitelly mean that I will not be able to setup cluster or this is not supported by microsoft configuration.

I will use EqualLogic  iSCSI SAN PS4000XV.


Just want to avoid situation when I get second box and it will not work.

Thank You

Damien
