Hi

Check this site http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Implementing-Two-Node-Cluster-Windows-2003-Enterprise.html

I would have thought you done that first, haven't you!

I've got a two-node active/active cluster, which I am only happy to be running because this new cluster has *vastly* more storage, memory, and bandwidth than the old non-clustered boxes.  Plus, they're supposed to give me a third cluster box for my spare node some time this year, so that will even things out.

I bought "Windows Server 2003 Clustering & Load Balancing" by Robert Shimonski, and I have to say that the book is mostly worthless when it comes to talking about resource types and their use.  The best the book does is to give brief walkthroughs for setting up a cluster, using the wizard every damn time.  I found that I learned a lot more by running up a test cluster and screwing with it for a while.  Almost all articles I've seen on the subject briefly cover standard configurations, and rarely get into the special cases or possibilities that are available through clustering.

I just paged through the book really quick, and *every* single section that deals with setting up a cluster *always* uses the wizard.  I really dislike when a technical book doesn't bother to explain the nuances of manually creating all relationships and resources by hand and why you might want or need to.

Anyhow, read up on the links provided above, but *do* spend some time tinkering with a cluster in a test environment if you have the opportunity.
