Failover clustering without SAN & SCSI ?

P: n/a
Dear Friends,

I wanted to configure Failover cluster for SQL Server 2000 on Windows
2000 advanced servers.

I have only 2 no.s of windows 2000 advanced server m/cs. I dont have
any shared disks and SCSI drives. Can I still configure the Failover
clustering?

I would like to know more about the need for the shared disks in the
Failover clustering.

Please shed some light.

Regards
Kumar

I would recommend you ask in the microsoft.public.sqlserver.clustering
newsgroup.

I suspect the answer though is no.

I would like to know more about the need for the shared disks in the
Failover clustering.
You absolutely need some way of both servers having access to the datafiles.


Please shed some light.
