Microsoft Clustering Services (MSCS) 2003 Server on ESX hosts
Posted on 2013-05-14
I hope you are all well and can assist.
We are investigating creating a windows cluster of 2 nodes, using Windows 2003 Server virtual machines on VMware ESX 4.1.
I am wondering if any of you guys could assist as this is foreign ground for us, and would love any advice on what things/procedure to follow?
Fo example, what do you guys do about the following?
A) Placement of cluster nodes
Do you place ALL your nodes on the SAME physical host or
Do you place each node on a DIFFERENT physical host?
B) Windows 2012 and Clustering on VMware 5.x
I am not sure if I am correct, but is it true that microsoft clustering in windows 2012 is not supported on VSphere 5.x?
Any help at all on the above things and the process to configure a cluster would be much appreciated.
