  • SQL failover cluster requierments?

    tomorrow I'm going to install sql cluster on hyper v machines.
    I would like to know a bit of the requirements for installing it successfully.

    Is it possible to install 2 node sql cluster (with another DC) in less then 8 hours?

    Are you going to install Sql Server on guests or to the Hyper-V servers? If on guests, I hope you got iSCSI already running. I woudn't advise installing SS on Hyper-V hosts. In case of failover, memory is going to get really tight.

    Have you read MSDN articles?

    Usually. Why, just on the other day I added some six nodes to a six node Hyper-V cluster, so the grand total is sweet 12 node cluster. Took some five hours. Most of the time was used to perform disk arbitration and failover verifications.
