Hi Guys,
I have virtualbox installed on my notebook.
For testing purpose, is it possible to setup SQL Server Fail-Over cluster using virtual box?
I don't have a shared storage. How can I simulate that?
Anyone have step by step guide in doing that?

thanks much for ur help

Yes it is possible, I use VirtualBox myself on my laptop for this.
I have a guide starting here which gives the general process. The sql server 2012 install is not that much different from 2008

You can use either Windows 2008 storage server or Starwinds iSCSI SAN
