I am learning how to setup and configure the AlwaysON Availability group and have couple of questions.
1 - Is it possible to setup/do this on single windows machine. I wanted to do this on my own lab which has 2 named instances running.
2 - Do I have to install Windows clustering services before I do this.
3 -If NOT, then what is a good PRACTICAL way to learn how to setup and configure AlwaysOn Availability Group in SQL Server?
Please share any best practices or let me know how did you learn setting this up when you did not have a TEST clustering environment setup.
