Hello Everyone,

I have heard mixed answers amongst my peers in the virtualisation world, but I would like clarity on the issue of vCenter 5.0 for Windows and weather Windows Fail over Clustering is supported?

I know that in previous versions it was but was also told on the VCP5.0 course that it was not supported for the vCenter application, but you could for the SQL DB.

Anyone know the real truth on this as finding information on the web about this question is proving taxing.

Thankyou.

I administer 8 farms. Some of them use vCenter and HA is implemented and working. So I can confirm.

You've got two options,

use a single SQL Server and VMware HA, or use Failover Clustering and two SQL Servers.

But will give you the same availability.
