    SQL Server 2000 Enterprise - Clustering


    First; I have your book "Professional SQL Server 7.0" and enjoy the reading
    very much. Thank you.

    Now my question: We are starting to implement SQL Server 2000 Enterprise
    on a Win2000 Cluster environment. Any advise on issues to stay away from
    or things that must be done. Any source of good information on this topic.
    Microsoft sites are almost impossible to get the correct information from.

    Sincerely,

    Wow. Huge topic.

    A few MS links - they really are not bad on the subject:

    http://support.microsoft.com/support.../Q260/7/58.ASP
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/ps...ering_2icn.htm

    I'm not aware of any good book on the subject.

    Things to think about that some people are not always aware of heading into
    it:

    You will also need to use MS Cluster Server (MSCS)
    You will need to make sure that you have a storage device that allows for
    "shared storage" - basically, it will be an external drive array that can be
    connected to two or more computers at a time. EMC˛, Hatachi, IBM, HP,
    Compaq, Dell, etc., etc. all have solutions of different varieties in this
    space ranging from boxes that only cost a couple of thousand dollars (plus
    drives) to systems that run well into the six figures stocked with drive
    space.
    The controllers in all connected systems also need to be able to deal with
    the shared storage environment.
    The connection between the various servers participating in the cluster (for
    SS2k there can be up to four) should be on it's own physical network - they
    will each need at least two NICs (one to talk amongst each other, and one
    for communication with the rest of the world).

    That's something of my short list.
