Hi All,

May I know what is the best possible deployment type for SQL Server 2008 R2 without any quorum drive ?

Is it possible to use it as active/active or it can only run as active/passive ?

Hm.. so in this case Apologize for the confusion. What I need is that the non shared cluster disk. Is that possible ?

because with the Exchange Server I can just use File Share Witness in another server. No need to commission small LUN in the Storage Array to cater for this quorum.
