Is it over a WAN or a LAN?  What kind of bandwidth do you have between the 2 nodes?

Its over LAN

If you're building a Windows Failover cluster, then there's no need to "Syncronize" them, since they rely on shared storage. Unfortunately, shared storage is the single point of failure, though your "shared storage" can be a distributed SAN that has built-in redundancy, so you can eliminate the risk as much as possible. As far as redundancy in your cluster, your best bet is to the put the servers in different racks - I've seen a number of clusters where the servers are right next to each other, in the same rack, even on the same power strip. Ideally, you'd get them as far apart as feasible.

If you'd like a walk-through on clustering Windows and setting up a clustered instance of SQL Server, here's a great article that details all the steps:


As far as recovering your shared storage, I'm at a loss there - sorry!
