CLUSTER will two different pairs work
Posted on 2013-11-20
Currently I have a hyper V cluster with two identical servers. I also have two more servers that are also identical. However they are not the same as the first pair.
Is it possible with windows server 2008 version of hyper-v to create one cluster using those 4 machines or do i need to just have two clusters?
Here are the pairs.
Server 1 and 2
IBM x3650 (7979) ( Dual XEONS total 4 cores)
CPUs are Dual Core Xeon 5150 2.66 GHz Socket 771 LGA (4MB Cache, 1333MHz FSB)
30 GB DDR2 PC2-5300 • CL=5 • Fully Buffered • ECC • DDR2-667 • (IBM)
Server 3 and 4
Custom Built w/SuperMicro X7DB8 Motherboard (Dual Xeons total 8 cores)
CPUs are Quad Core Xeon E5320 1.86GHz Socket 771 LGA (8MB Cache, 1333MHz FSB)
20 GB DDR2 PC2-5300 • CL=5 • Fully Buffered • ECC • DDR2-667 • (KINGSTON)
Are they close enough in spec? Also if this is a good idea or a bad idea. I'm just curious.
