Windows 2008 R2 Single Node Cluster
Posted on 2011-09-13
I need to build a single node (lone wolf) cluster for a pilot using Windows 2008 R2 and SQL 2008 R2. The reason for the single node cluster is due to limited resources. We plan to add another node to the cluster later in time.
I have been scouring the internets looking for docs on single node clusters. I've never built one before using 2K8 R2. So far I haven't been too successful.
I also see that SQL 2008 R2 Ent has clustering functionality as well.
My primary question is if there is any documentation single node Windows 2K8 clusters.
My next question is if you build a windows cluster, do you have to cluster SQL 2K8 separately?
In the olden days, you would just build a windows cluster and install SQL on each node.
