    I got disspointed after looking at the title and then reading the article. I was expecting the answers for the below question.

    1. Say for 2 nodes cluster, Do we need to have 2 copies of Databases( 1 on each node)

    2. Hows does the data Synchronization between different nodes of databases takes place?

    3. In Active/Passive mode, does the passive node database is exactly in the same state (in terms of data) as that of Active?

    Q1: Say for 2 nodes cluster, Do we need to have 2 copies of Databases( 1 on each node).

    Ans: Because in a clustering environment normally sql database hosted only SAN(single point of database copy only).

    Q2:Hows does the data Synchronization between different nodes of databases takes place?

    Ans: Sql server 2000/2005/2008-environment, sql server having own quorum mechanism, we need to select the quorum model and MSdtc .

    Q3:In Active/Passive mode, does the passive node database is exactly in the same state (in terms of data) as that of Active?

    Ans: yes--Because if something happened the active node all the sql resource has moved to passive node with in 15 secs. so that data has same state.
