We are looking at setting up a cluster.
The 2 servers are running 2008 Enterprise.
Both would have SQL server 2008 standard.
I have a raid 5 1tb drive on both servers.
However, running the test, it reported no hard drives found.
The question is can you run data storage on the same computer your trying to use for a cluster or do you have to run a san behind it?

Cluster wants to use shared data disks.

So basicaly you can not use the local drives to run a cluster then.

Would need shared storage for the databases, some components of SQL are installed locally.
Maybe able to use a share on another box for testing.

i have read that volume sharing is possible in 2008 Enterprise R2 however the only version of that I've found least on the volume license and tech net sites is the 64 bit version.  All of our programing is based on 32bit software and our programmer doesn't want to go to 64bit.

2008 R2 OS is 64 bit, only Windows 2008 has a 32 bit version available.
To cluster properly one would want to use the correct back end.
