Setting up a Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V Cluster
I spent some time in one of our Microsoft Technology Centers and was able to setup a Hyper-V cluster on some pretty impressive hardware. I had access to a Domain Controller and three servers that were running Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Edition. They are as follows:
3 Dell R900’s
Quad CPU (each CPU is a quad core)
two of them had 64 GB of RAM, the third one had 128 GB of RAM. Is that Cool or What??
Access to 1 TB of disk space on an Equalogic SAN carved up into 5 separate LUNs
I spent the whole day with one of our partners doing a deep dive into Hyper-V, clusters and High Availability. Don’t worry, I recorded a few sessions while I had access to the hardware and I’ll show you a few of the cooler moments. This session talks about setting up a Hyper-V Cluster, I’ll cover some of the other topics in my next few posts…
Here’s the Hyper-V Step-by-Step guide that will walk you through setting up your Hyper-V cluster:
Here is the checklist on Setting up a Hyper-V Cluster:
My next Hyper-V session will cover placing a Virtual Machine into the cluster.
This session is one part of a whole series of screen casts around Hyper-V, you can go this link to access the whole series.
