Hi Experts,

We have multiple Windows 2008 Clusters for CCR, and just wondering what hotfixes and critical updates are requested for a Windows 2008 cluster.

Our environment is 2 physical nodes running Windows 2008 Ent SP2, and file share witness is running on a VM

Please advice

I installed CCR on a 2008 cluster a couple of years ago, and the setup was pretty straight forward. Just make sure that you have the latest patches installed on your 2008 machine and:

 The 2 Windows Server 2008 Enterprise edition servers should be equipped with 2 network interfaces (one for the public network and one for the private heartbeat network) and at least 2 disks – 1 for the System partition, 1 for Exchange databases and optionally 1 for transaction log files (in a lab environment these could also be located together with the Exchange databases).

This is the article I followed at the time: http://www.msexchange.org/articles_tutorials/exchange-server-2007/high-availability-recovery/deploying-exchange-2007-sp1-ccr-cluster-windows-server-2008-failover-cluster-part1.html
