Hi,
I am new to SQL clustering.

I have been given a SQL 2008 database which I can connect successfully using SSMS 2008. How I can locate if this is a clustered database? I would prefer a T-SQL stmt.
I have access to the windows box in case that helps.

Thanks

Do you have a piece of SQL which will return all attributes of a SQL server cluster?
For example version, cluster configuration, machines in cluster, name of cluster, database created .....

SERVERPROPERTY() has several different parameters that will return a list of different things about the server.  Please see Books Online -- or do a Google search for "SQL Server SERVERPROPERTY" -- to get full details on everything SERVERPROPERTY can provide.

Remember, clustering is not part of SQL Server itself.  Typically Windows clustering is used for SQL Server.  (That's the only clustering I'm familiar with, but I think maybe SQL can run under other clustering.)

So clustering details -- # machines in cluster, etc. -- will not be directly available from SQL Server.
