Small Business Server 2008 Redundancy
Posted on 2011-03-11
I have a client who recently purchased a SBS2008 System, he would like to turn his two current servers into either A) a mirror of it or b) some sort of cluster for it. His objective is to have a Failover system. If Server A goes down Server B automatically takes the load and has already existing identical data. What is the best way to make this happen? I understand SBS2008 does not have clustering capabilities but CAN do it via Hyper-V. How can I take two Win 2008 (which I guess I can install up to SBS2008) and make them failovers for a SBS2008 System. (One of the Win2008's is the clients current Domain Controller). How would you do this? What is the best way? The client requested this extra extra redundancy.
