Hello, I have an SBS2008 Virtual machine running as a DC, VPN server etc.
This is running as a virtual machine on a 2 node Hyper V R2 cluster (hosts on Server 2008 Enterprise).

Currently I have failover for everything if a physical node fails, but if the virtual OS fails (IE the Node is still up but for some reason the SBS2008 VPN server hangs), I have no VPN failover and am wondering what options I have to have a backup VPN server that will take over if the SBS2008 VPN server hangs (as opposed to the host server hosting the virtual machine.
