Hi, I am trying to find a howto article for setting up a Windows Failover cluster with Microsoft SQL 2012 AlwaysOn Availability Group, with 2 nodes (2 VMs) on a vSphere environment running 5.5. We have a NetApp storage controller with NFS datastores presented to the ESXi hosts, two stacked switches, and three hosts total.
According to VMware KB http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1037959
the SQL AlwaysOn availability groups are supported without shared storage.
How would I go about configuring this? I'd rather not use bus sharing (RDM/etc) so I can still take Veeam backups, and use snapshots, etc.
