SQL Server 2012 failover cluster deployment and configuration for VMware
Posted on 2014-12-19
I need to find a step-by-step document to build a Windows 2012 R2 failover cluster for SQL 2012 server using Virtual machines in VMware.
My environment is below:
Site 1: 2 VMs deployed in a Windows 2012 cluster accessing a Primary Database
Site 2: 1 VM standalone with a Secondary database[it will be a replica of primary DB] this is for DR purposes
Can someone include best practices deployment and configuration docs for SQL 2012 R2 cluster in Vsphere 5?
Please provide all options from SQL, VMware, and Windows point of view. Consider all options virtual RDM disk, and any other technology under VMware virtual space
