based on http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-us/exam.aspx?ID=70-432
as the exam involves HA topics,
what is the minimum setup required to get hands on topics relating to mirroring, log shipping, replication and clustering.
believe that mirroring, and log shipping, replication are on db level, so in that case we can use 2 VM for this
but for clustering it is on server level, so we need to use another 2VM.
how should we set up the VM? how much disk space is required?
what should be the virtualization technology that we should use?
Hard Disk Space Requirements (32-Bit and 64-Bit)
would require a max of 240 MB
but how about the overall disk requirements? how should we partitioned the virtual disk?
am I right to say I need to purchase 4* OS licenses for the VM?
Please share your thoughts on the most affordable way to learn SQL server certification.
thanks a lot!
