Microsoft Windows Cluster Lab
Microsoft Windows Cluster Lab Diagram
In my Windows Cluster Lab, SQL1 and SQL2 will be the hosts used to create the Windows Cluster in the following labs.
All servers are running Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise. As you can see on the network diagram SQL1 and SQL2 each have 3 network cards installed: Local Lan, Heartbeat and iSCSI.
The server named DC1 is my Windows 2008 R2 Active Directory Domain Controller and for Storage I’m using a Netapp SAN running iSCSI.
All the tutorials included on this site are performed in a lab environment to simulate a real world production scenario. As everything is done to provide the most accurate steps to date, we take no responsibility if you implement any of these steps in a production environment.
