Hello,

I'm currently looking at replacing our server infrastrcuture with:

HP DL380 G7 servers, x 2
HP P2000 G3 MSA iSCSI

Essentially, I'm looking for a high availabikity solution.  I was thinking of running 2008 R2 on both servers, with hyper-v virtual machines on the P2000.  

I have a lot of experience with Server 2008, although have not used Hyper-V or iSCSI  Shared Storage before.  

Does anyone know of any good guides that may assist with this?  I was going to try and wing it and see if I can figure it out!

thanks,

Some Microsoft articles can help you:
starting with clusters: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/clustering/archive/2008/01/18/7151154.aspx
Hyper-V clustering: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc732181(WS.10).aspx  Look at "Steps for using Hyper-V and Failover Clustering" section.

Remember that clustering requires AD. You didn't mention you have it in your environment.

You have to check few things related to your iSCSI configuration. For instance, NIC teaming is not supported by Microsoft on a cluster for iSCSI interfaces...
There is a validation wizard in the cluster management console: it could help you pinpoint potential issues before implementing your cluster.

The following document could provide you with further information regarding the iSCSI implementation:
