Windows 2008 R2 enterprise edition cluster.
Posted on 2013-01-09
I setup the Windows 2003 cluster for the use of SQL server 2005 cluster before but I forget how to do it now.
now we tried to use Windows 2008 R2 enterprise edition + SQL server 2008 R2 standard edition as a 2 x nodes SQL cluster.
What is the pre-request before configuring the Windows 2008 R2 cluster?
1) We just need one volumn before installing cluster component as that one is the Quorm voume? after configuring the Windows 2008 R2 cluster, that volume only saw by the active volume that own all disk resource?
2) if we have 2 x SQL instance on the same 2x nodes cluster group, then we need 2 x volume as the Quorum before configurating the windows clusters?
3) MSDTC is a serivce and suggested to install on other dedicated volumn other than the Quorum volume ?
Any step by step guide "?
