Hi all
        we have SQL2008 Cluster run on Win2008 server, for hardware, we have 2 DELL server, we call it "SQLcluster1" and "SQLcluster2", we have installed the Win2008, run the windows 2008 cluster on it, we also have one NETAPP stroage, all database save at NETAPP, now we want to migrate this SQL cluster to 2 other new DELL server, we call it "newDELL1" and "newDELL2", and current 2 dell server an NETAPP will be shut down.
        since we have no share storate( NETAPP) in the fature, so we are not able to use SQL cluster on 2 new dell server, is that right?
        so, my plan is: 1. setup windows and SQL on "newDELL1" and "newDELL2"
                              2. migrate all database and username password from SQLcluster to "newDELL1", i will backup and restore master database to migrate all username and password
                              3.setup SQL mirror on "newDELL1" and "newDELL2" for HA
        please let me know if any better solution for this? for hardware, we have only 2 new DELL server in the fatuer, the 2 old dell server and NETAPP storage have to shut down.

You have a good plan. You are right that without shared storage you cannot have a cluster in Win2008.

So the mirror will provide you with HA and allow you to have both servers connected that way.

You should use something like sp_help_revlogin or an SSIS transfer logins task to get the logins from one to the other.  Then you will want to get the Server Role Membership and apply it.

Don't forget the Jobs in SQL Agent as well as any Proxy accounts for execution in SQL Agent.

Also remember the linked servers and most importantly and Proxy accounts, they are not scriptable.
