MSCS Clustering questions in 2 nodes VMs
Posted on 2014-02-13
I’m in the process of building Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise MSCS 2x node cluster VMs, in this case I got some confusion around the following things:
1. Does it needs a secondary vNIC with separate VLAN and static route to be able to use the Heart Beat network ?
2. I assume that it is still required Quorum disk for around 1 GB at least. Or not really anymore ?
3. Do I need to create DTC (Distributed Transaction Coordinator) cluster instance with dedicated IP address ?
Are those information correct or needs some change? This will be used for the base of SQL Server 2012 Enterprise Always On Availability group.
