I have installed an active/active cluster and everything seems to be working okay. I think I may have done this in a non-standard way?? I installed the sql system files on a SAN-attached drive instead of on the local drive. The cluster appears to be working okay and the failover works as well. I am concerned that there may be performance issues associated with this install later (we are still in a test environment). Has anyone done this or know of any reasons that this may not work?

Thanks,
Kim

I'm thinking you mean Active/Passive (since ony one of the node has access to SQL server at any given time), or do you have multiple instances?

Did you follow this procedure?

Othwerwise - is there something leading you to think it's not stable? Are you testing it with a load on the server, or are you failing over only with low activity?

Your lack of planning does not constitute an emergency on my part...unless you're my manager...or a director and above...or a really loud-spoken end-user..All right - what was my emergency again?

I did follow the instructions and everything looks okay. Our failover tests have been with very little activity. This is an Active/Active cluster with multiple instances of SQL installed. My big question is whether having the tempdb and the SQL executables will cause issues. I have tried moving the model/msdb databases to new locations and this process failed. I also tried changing the location of the master database and the configuration manager would not accept the changed settings. I'm just a little concerned that these issues are indicative of bigger problems.
