Cluster Disk Selection

  • I'm setting up a new SQL Server 2008R2 Failover Clustered Instance and I have a question that I'm hoping the likes of Perry Whittle will be able to answer. 😉

    I've created the follow cluster resource disk groups:

    Quorum

    MSDTC

    SQLBackups

    SQ:Data_F

    SQLData_G

    SQLData_H

    SQLData_I

    SQLLogs

    TempDB

    I know that disk resources cannot be shared between FCIs, but for the single (named) instance that I am installing, do I need to select the SQLBackups disk resource on the Cluster Disk Selection page or is it only the disk resources that will be used for data and log storage that have to be selected?

    Thanks and regards

    All volumes that are to be part of the SQL Server instances resource list must be added, this includes the backup disk\volume.

  • Thanks Perry, I knew you wouldn't be able to resist! 🙂

    By the way, I came across your 3-part series of articles on clustering - very informative and reduced the number of questions I would otherwise have asked.

    Thanks
