    Make sure that:
    - you login and install with an account that is administrator on both nodes
    - the remote registry service is started in both nodes.

    You should always place the Quorum on a shared volume. How big is drive R? Never place the Databases on C: as it is generally used for OS files.

    It depends on what kind of configuration you have for these drives...

    If you are not seperating the data and log files then you can place on either of them... and make sure you have enough space for tempdb to grow...

    Where is quoram? do not put any database file on quorum drive...

    I would go with H for system databasesand R for user databases.

    I would not place system databases on local storage, I would place all DBs especially system on a shared cluster disks and would want them always on shared storage in the SQL Resource Group.

    Sramesh - As a general rule of dumb create seperate volumes on shared storage, for the Quorum I would prefer to use the letter "Q:" on shared storage and only place the Quorum in this location. Place all Databases on a seperate shared volume. Are you on a SAN???? Keep in mind before you even think about clustering anything you must have storage requirments defined and ready to avoid extra work.

    I need one more solution....
    I have configured two server. I want add one more node to this clustering. How it is possible?
    The third node in cluster group without sql installation. How could i install sql server in the third node?
