Windows Clustering in Virtual Server

Postby guest » Tue Nov 25, 2008 12:28 pm

Based on my experiences, in Virtual Server 2005, you can create a server
cluster by using virtual machines. In this scenario, you can configure a
simple two-node server cluster, where one virtual machine can fail over to
another virtual machine. The following are the requirements and the
limitations to support creating a server cluster by using virtual machines
in Virtual Server 2005:

1. Virtual Server 2005 supports only a two-node failover server cluster,
where one virtual machine can fail over to another virtual machine.
2. The shared storage volume for the server cluster must be a fixed-size
virtual hard disk (.vhd).
3. The shared virtual hard disk cannot have the Undo feature enabled.
4. Both virtual machine cluster nodes must be configured on the same
physical computer.
5. You must format the shared storage volume with the NTFS file system to
support a server cluster.
6. Virtual Server 2005 clustering is only supported on Microsoft Windows
Server 2003, Enterprise Edition.
