    Re: build second server as cluster

    You need to define your project more clearly
    Are you wanting to:
    a) Run HyperV on a physical cluster
    or
    b) Run a virtual cluster under HyperV ?
    (or ESX as the case may be)

    Clustering Server 2003 is not that hard, but there are quite many pre-requirements. For starter, you need identical hardware configuration for all the cluster nodes. So if all you got is a single server or two different servers, you are out of luck.

    You could implement clustering easily enough by using Virtual Server 2005R2, as in VS you can share a SCSI bus. For VMWare and Hyper-V, you need to use iSCSI for shared storage.
