  • Configuring a cluster of 2 nodes without SCSI controller

    Dear all,

    Does anyone know how to configure a cluster of only 2 nodes without using a scsi controller (shared storage), i read an article says that "MNS" needs at least 3 nodes & local quorum is for cluster testing only.

    Plz advice and thx in advance.

    If it's just for testing then why dont you use Virtual Server 2005:

      Dear Michael,

      Thanks for your help but is there any other way that could accomplish my task coz i'll be in a severe problem if anything happened to my server "H/W failure, ...etc".

      Please advice.

        Hi,

        I forgot to tell you that i'll implement clustering operation at work not for testing purpose, so i'll be responsible of any problem that may occur.

        Thx in advance.

          I'm assuming you're using 2k3. If this is correct then SCSI is supported on up to two nodes. If you're using 3 or more nodes you'll need to use Fibre. IDE isn't supported at all. Check out this post. http://forums.petri.com/showpost.php...2&postcount=14
