Thanks Perry, I am going to try this one. I also have your PDF document which you had shared with me before.

Hi Mohammed

no problem, if you hit any problems feel free to post back here and ask (or create a new thread in the forum).
This is actually a 3 part guide, i'll have to contact Steve Jones and ask him to edit that for me


Regards

Perry

Great Article Perry,

Is it possible to achieve the same result using ORacle VM VirtuaBox instead of VM ware?

Thanks,

Gary

Wow... popular topic... I had actually just written similar procedures to test and then publish :)

Yes you can do similar using HyperV, VirtualBox and VMWare ESX and Workstation.

Great Article Perry,

Never used Oracle virtual box so i wouldnt know unfortunately. I do have an ESX4i system running a 2 node windows 2008 cluster, a 2 node windows 2003 cluster and a 2 node Veritas Cluster Services cluster. ESX offers better manageability and performance than VMWare server 2.0, but then there is a vast difference between the platforms. You could use Hyper-V but i personally prefer VMWare

Parts 2 and 3 get down to the nitty gritty.
Part 2 covers creating the VMs and attaching the LUNs over iSCSI to the new Windows 2008 VMs with a nice little section on manually partition aligning a new drive
Part 3 covers creating the cluster and installing SQL Server
