Clustering on Windows 2003 SP2 Enterprise with SQL Server 2008

Hello,

Scenario - clustered SQL (node A active, node B is passive). OS is Windows 2003 Enterprise SP2 and SQL is SQL 2008.

Situation - node A hung due to resource depletion - server did not reboot. For some reason, node A didn't failover to node B. Microsoft is telling me that is a normal behavior...isn't that defeats the purpose of clustering??

Can someone please enlighten me?

•A failover cluster provides high availability for services, applications, and other resources through an architecture that maintains a consistent image of the cluster on all nodes and that allows nodes to transfer resource ownership on demand

What resource became depleted?

Usually clustering fails over on active node hard failures, lose of public network.

Resource depleted was virtual memory caused by 3rd party drivers.
